wxPython 4 for Ubuntu 16.04 is now available for my programs!

Recently I built and released a wxPython 4 package for Ubuntu 16.04, which now means that you can install WxFixBoot and DDRescue-GUI on Ubuntu 16.04 using Python 3.

This is quite simple to do. Instead of using the original packages, head to http://www.hamishmb.com or http://www.launchpad.net and download the packages labelled “Ubuntu 16.04 (updated to use python 3)”. You’ll also need to download the “wxPython 4.0.1 for Ubuntu 16.04” package.

After that, simply install the wxPython package, then DDResccue-GUI and/or WxFixBoot, and you’re good to go. This way, you get all the advantages of using Python 3, even on the older Ubuntu 16.04 release.

That’s all for now, but stay tuned for more posts, including updated Disk Verifier tutorials, and other news!

About Hamish McIntyre-Bhatty

I'm currently studying for a Computing and IT degree with the Open University, and am a software developer as well. I enjoy coding in Python, C++ (still learning), and Java. Having written 4 open-source programs (hosted on launchpad.net), set up my own website, and started volunteering at Wimborne Model Town to work on their river control system, I still find the time to enjoy cycling, acting, photography, and playing bass guitar. I go climbing every now and then as well. More recently, I wrote my first commercial program, Disk Verifier, and created a PSID Unlocker GUI for Parted Magic. I also create tutorial and other informative videos for Parted Magic LLC.
