How to install Kivy on Debian Wheezy??

Postby Mattfro118 » 2013-07-09 08:40

Hi guys, I'm new to the forums, and to Debian. I'm trying to install kivy for Debian but on the site it looks like in the Debian installation section they give you a list of PPAs, but as far as I can tell they are all for Ubuntu. I'm fairly new to the Debian distro, and I've been told it'll screw stuff up to add packages for other distros. So if anyone can help me out, or point me in the right direction It would be greatly appreciated!



Here's the website. -> http://kivy.org/docs/installation/insta ... linux.html

You can build and install the debian package yourself since the sources come complete with debian rules:
Code: Select all
wget http://ppa.launchpad.net/kivy-team/kivy/ubuntu/pool/main/k/kivy/kivy_1.1.0.tar.gz
tar xfv kivy_1.1.0.tar.gz
cd kivy-1.1.0-1.1.0/
sudo apt-get install cython libgles2-mesa-dev
dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us
sudo dpkg -i../python-kivy_1.1.0_amd64.deb
