[opensuse] Help: Python GTK/Gobject problem with OpenSuSE 11.4



Hi all. I'm have an ongoing problem with apps that use python-gtk under 11.4 /
KDE 4.6.5 failing to run. The error message is as follows:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/bin/chirpw", line 25, in <module>
import gtk
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py", line 40, in
<module>
from gtk import _gtk
ImportError: could not import gobject (could not find _PyGObject_API object)

Googling the last line has turned up several related threads in various
mailing list archives (including oS factory) without any of them ever actually
hinting at a solution.

I can reproduce the problem at the command line using:

python -c 'import gtk'

Does anyone here have any clues on this?

Thanks in advance,
Rodney.
