wxwidgets and python 3.

Fri Jan 11, 2019 4:28 pm

Hello all.

I installed from repos wx2.8, and it is working on 2.x python. But not on 3.x (3.0/3.4).
Then i tried to pip3 install wxpython, which starts to install, but always crashes to :"No package 'gtk+-3.0' found


*** Could not run GTK+ test program, checking why...

*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the

*** exact error that occured. This usually means GTK+ is incorrectly installed.

configure: error:

The development files for GTK+ were not found. For GTK+ 2, please

ensure that pkg-config is in the path and that gtk+-2.0.pc is

installed. For GTK+ 1.2 please check that gtk-config is in the path,

and that the version is 1.2.3 or above. Also check that the

libraries returned by 'pkg-config gtk+-2.0 --libs' or 'gtk-config

--libs' are in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH or equivalent."

any ideas?
