I am using OpenSuSE 15 to learn Python and wxPython. I see that both Python 2.7 and 3.0 are installed in both OpenSuSE versions. I am unable to find documentation on the Internet on how to install wxPython on OpenSuse. The closest thing is the documentation on the wxPython site but it’s geared towards Ubuntu, Windows and OS X. Can someone that know show to perform the installation on OpenSuSE (the makers choice) create detailed instructions? Here are some of my questions:
Are there articles already available that I’m just not finding in Google searches?
What version of Python do I need to use in OpenSuSE 42.3 and 15? It looks like the current version of wxPython that’s in the repository will work on Python 2.7 but not 3.x. Is there a version of wxPython that works in Python 3.x? I don’t really want to learn Python 2.x if the future is 3.x.
Is python 2.x run with the python command and python 3.x run with the python3 command? Is pip the pip for Python 2.x and pip3 the pip for Python 3.x? With all of the documentation out on the Internet these issues aren’t clear to me.
I used the repository to install wxPython 3.0.2 but the installed version of wxGTK is 3.1.1. If I open Python 2.7 in a terminal and import wx, a warning is displayed about a version mismatch between wxPython and wxGTK. How can I fix that? Can the package maintainers keep the versions in sync?
What development software/IDE should I use until I know enough about Python to make a wise decision on purchasing an IDE package?
What is the recommended GUI designer for wxPython on OpenSuSE 42.3 and 15?
I have other questions and will have many more but these questions should provide an idea of the newbie type questions that would be nice to have answered in an article.
Hope someone can help.
