[SOLVED] XFCE 4.4.0 'failed to make exo'...python related (?)

Hi.  I'm running Ubuntu Edgy 6.10, and attempted to install XFCE 4.4.0 ealier today.

During Extensions Library, I got this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/share/pygtk/2.0/codegen/codegen.py", line 1707, in ?
    sys.exit(main(sys.argv))
  File "/usr/local/share/pygtk/2.0/codegen/codegen.py", line 1665, in main
    p.startParsing()

    for statement in statements:

    fp = open(filename, 'r')
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/usr/local/share/pygtk/2.0/defs/gdk-types.defs'
make[2]: *** [exo.c] Error 1

make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/xfce4-4.4.0-installer/exo'
make: *** [all] Error 2
!! Failed to build exo, see the errors above
!! for details on the problem.

Seeing as it refers to python stuff I'm guessing it's something to do with pygtk, but I'm pretty sure I have all the dependencies installed....any help would be much appreciated smile.

You can try compiling exo with --disable-python if you don't need the py bindings :-|

Sorted, turns out I had either a broken or out-of-date version of pygtk, but as it wasn't on the dependencies list I didn't check up on it.  I compiled version 2.10 from the site and it gave the file the xfce installer was complaining about - 'gdk-types.defs'.  Thanks for the input  smile.
