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!

I'm a self-employed software developer working on Free Software projects, as well as studying for my degree with the Open University. Being pedantic when it comes to detail is fortunately useful for both of these things! A strong believer in free software, I have a few pay-for programs available under the GPLv3 and enjoy reporting bugs and helping to improve various open source projects, including volunteering at Wimborne Model Town to work on their river control system.
