Problems using virtualenv under Ubuntu

Toga uses the system native python GTK+3 bindings for display purposes. However, if you’re using a –no-site-packages virtualenv, the Python bindings for GTK won’t be in your PYTHONPATH.

Unfortunately, you can’t pip install GTK+ bindings, so you have to use a workaround. To make the system GTK+ bindings available to your virtualenv, symlinking the gi module from the system dist-packages directory into your virtualenv’s site-packages:

$ cd <your virtualenv dir>/lib/python2.7/site-packages $ ln -si /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gi


Documentation for Toga can be found on Read The Docs.
