sceneEditor crashes (Debian)

Hi *,

I am new to panda3d (and game dev as well). I just installed the .deb package, the samples etc. work all fine, but when I try to run the, I get the following error:

joerg@dars:/usr/share/panda3d/SceneEditor$ python

Any hints?



What Version of Panda3D do you use? 1.3.x or 1.4?

What distribution are you running? What deb file did you download? (note that Ubuntu and Debian both use .deb-files since they are both “debian related”)

I use panda3d_1.4.0-debianetch_i386.deb, using it for debian testing.



Not at all surprising… I completely forgot about the scene editor. Never tested it.

God, I hate the scene editor. It’s never done anything useful, to my knowledge, but it takes endless hours of maintenance.

jhb: dont use the its just a crappy left over from i don’t know what. It is not needed any where and we get alog with out it.

add me to the list.

The big problem, I think, is that the Scene Editor is in the top-level directory, essentially advertising itself: “run me! run me,” when in fact it should be tucked away in a corner.

Hmmm… I wonder if there isn’t a chance to put the files into a “deprecated” folder? :wink:
Or if that sounds too hard maybe one saying “needs work”?
