Re: wxPython-gtk3 woes
First: for PPA, I disable for the moment WXPYTHON when needed (for
bionis...). So it fixing temporary this issue
Second: I'm one of the user(s ?) who use wxpython for GUI in plugins.
I'm sure is not a major feature (yet). Anyway the possibility to create
plugins to KiCad in python with a minimal UI (simple dialog boxes...) is
really useful to add features that require input parameters...
Last point: Is there a list of issue detected with GTK3 ? Some bugs are
tagged with that ?
