Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1024318
meld should use system python interpreter
Last modified: 2014-03-21 05:37:08 EDT
Description of problem:
Hashbang of /usr/bin/meld is "#! /usr/bin/env python". Since its dependencies are installed as system libs and it depends on a specific version of python, it should use that specific version of python (i.e. "#!/usr/bin/python" (or python2, or python2.7)).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce (using virtualenvwrapper commands):
1. Create virtualenv: mktmpenv
2. Run: meld
Cannot import: pygtk
No module named pygtk
Steps to Reproduce (using virtualenvwrapper commands, with python3):
1. Create virtualenv: mktmpenv -p /usr/bin/python3
2. Run: meld
File "/usr/bin/meld", line 107
print "Couldn't bind the translation domain. Some translations won't work."
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
Expected results (for both cases):
A meld window.
Common enough to run into, when using git-difftool (or equivalent for other VCS) in a project using virtualenv.
