    How do I correctly install python apps/games

    I have searched on google and the python website but I cant find a simple answer to my question...

    How do I install python apps/games.

    I have an N97 and I have the latest version of python. I am able to launch python and play/use the sample apps/games that are included but when I install a python app/game it shows up in Applications but it doesnt launch. I have tried several apps/games including

    hello Bezzey

    welcome to the forum nokia Python Dibo

    make sure your application is installed in the same drive in which your Python runtime is installed.

    if you still face the same problem please feel free to post your problem.

    Re: How do I correctly install python apps/games

    I have installed the apps/games in the same directory but that didn't fix it. Is it possible to get a .py file and put it in the 'Python' directory becaue when using the file manager I noticed that thats where tthe sample apps/games are

    Nixie Tube clock requires PyS60 1.4.x, from its documentation.

    This application requires PyS60 1.4.x.

    hello BEzzey

    what exact details you want??

    The point is very clear if the application is developed with PyS60 1.4.x releases then it will not work in the PyS60 1.9.x releases.

    But you can develop an application and make it working in the PyS60 1.4.x releases.

    Hope its clear.

    hello Bezzey

    do a thing install PyS60 1.4.5 in your mobile and then install the application in the same drive where the Python runtime is installed, i feel this will work for you.

    If it doesnt then feel free to ask here.

    my mistake you need to install the latest PyS60 1.9.x release i just checked that with my N95 8GB and its working fine.

    Please Download the latest PyS60 1.9.7 from maemogarage.

    Hope now this works for you.

    Re: How do I correctly install python apps/games

    Hey guys I've had a chat with gaba88 on messenger but we didn't have enough time to sort it out. I've still got the problem of apps just flashing then closing straight away. I've tried uninstalling python runtime, python for S60 and the python apps then reinstalling python followed by the apps but I still have the same problem. Can anyone help me?

    I can talk on MSN messenger for easier communication if anyone is willing to.

    Re: How do I correctly install python apps/games

    Just install Python runtime (PythonforS60.sis) from http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...ease_id=644640 and then install the application. Simple, isn't it?

    No they aren't! There are some directory structure changes, some module name changes and you need to build a SIS file differently on 1.4.5 and 1.9.7.
