Summary: sci-visualization/qtiplot- only loads /usr/local/qtiplot/ if launched from /usr/local/qtiplot

Description urcindalo 2008-05-26 11:16:59 UTC
Unless qtiplot is launched from inside the /usr/local/qtiplot
directory, is NOT correctly loaded. You get this error in qtiplot's
console: "Failed to import qtiUtil file!". But, if the command "qtiplot" is
invoked from within /usr/local/qtiplot, then the file is loaded: "qtiUtil file
successfully imported!"

In my path /usr/local/bin is searched before /usr/bin, so I had to create this script:
cd /usr/local/qtiplot && qtiplot

to be able to correctly launch qtiplot. I had to change my KDE menu entries so that they launch my script instead of /usr/bin/qtiplot

Reproducible: Always

I forgot to mention that the location of config files is correctly configured to /usr/local/qtiplot, so that's not the problem.

I've just committed an improved ebuild to cvs. It installs python files to /usr/lib/python<version>/site-packages and compiles them. This should fix the bug. Please check. Please rm -rf ~/.config/ProIndependent before starting qtiplot for the first time after updating to this new version. If it works, please, close the bug.

Yes, the bug is gone. Thanks very, very much.
