gnuradio - wxgui failure.

It's been... several months since this issue cropped up, and no fix seems to be available. Whenever I attempt to excecute a flowgraph in gnuradio using WXGUI blocks, I get this:

/home/jowijo/.gtkrc-2.0:1: error: unexpected character '[', expected keyword - e.g. `style'
Using Volk machine: avx_64_mmx_orc
Traceback (most recent call last):

wx._core.PyAssertionError: C++ assertion "m_window" failed at ./src/gtk/dcclient.cpp(2041) in DoGetSize(): GetSize() doesn't work without window

Have tried:
- Installing nvidia package for my Arch system.
- Re-installing wxpython
- Restarting several times
- Yes, the bugfix says it was fixed in 3.7.2, but as of 3.7.3; it's broken.

This was never an issue in Ubuntu or Fedora, and can be "solved" by downgrading severl packages, including gnuradio; but this then makes tome OOT modules not work. Any idea what is going on here, and why this has yet to be dealt with?

Re: gnuradio - wxgui failure.

I'm getting the same error here as well.

Not sure if related, but all GRC flows also fail here with: "NameError: name 'grc_wxgui' is not defined". Resolved. Original error still happens.

I don't think I'm able to help you, but perhaps someone else can if you file a new bug report(if you haven't yet) and give a list of the packages you had to downgrade.

Re: gnuradio - wxgui failure.

Sorry about this.  I had applied the fix while updating Gnuradio for the boost 1.56.0 rebuild.  I didn't expect the rebuild to take this long, I should have done it in two passes.

Anyway, it is pretty trivial.  There is a missing optdep, python2-opengl.  Install that and everything should be good.
