Psycho

Friday was a day at the psychology department. I battled with wxwidgets to get a full screen frame without any window decorations on Mac OS X, not with the desired outcome. The best I can get is a screen filling frame, but with a title bar and a ‘close window’ button at the top. Acceptable. Shame that it works as desired under windows. The other thing I looked at was using py2app to wrap up a python application that uses Python Imaging Library and wxwidgets to run on another mac. After some unsuccessful attempts I decided to upgrade python and site packages to newer versions. I upgraded python from version 2.3 to 2.4 and downloaded wxwidgets latest available version. The new site-packages installation meant I had to reinstall py2app. Success, with the latest versions py2app created mac a working application. A lot of these different packages come with their own installation tools. Ever heard of ez_install.py (say eazee(!))? Well, that is used for setuptools and py2app. Or python eggs? Don’t quite know what they are good for, but some got laid in my working directory.

And I had a chat with another scientist at the department about programming some experiments for her.
