Dear list,

I'm a complete beginner with Grass (and python), and I've seem to be stuck
with a probably quite trivial problem.

I'm running Grass ver. 6.4.0RC6-2 on Ubuntu 9.10 (karmic). I've installed
Ubuntu from the repos with Synaptic.

I have also manually installed wxPython (package
python-wxversion) following these instructions:

While trying to start grass with "grass -wxpython" command, I get the
following error message:

----- clip ----

Cleaning up temporary files ...
Starting GRASS ...
ERROR: wxGUI requires wxPython >= Requested version of wxPython not
Error in GUI startup. If necessary, please
report this error to the GRASS developers.
Switching to text mode now.
Hit RETURN to continue...

---- clip ----

The tcltk gui works fine.

I couldn't find any help in the FAQ or mailing list archives. Maybe some
paths need to be set, but how? Any pointers?
