Windows Installation if you already have Python and wxPython installed:
Download any win32 file under this release. Note: you must have python
and wxpython installed on your system to use this file.
1) Simply run the installer by double-clicking the downloaded file.
Run the file lj_client.py that should be in the C:\Python22\lj directory, or in the lj directory wherever Python is installed on your system.
Download any file under this release that ends with the extension
.tar.gz. Run this file if you are running Linux or some flavor of Unix. Prerequisites are that you must have Python and wxPython installed on your system.
After downloading, extract the tarred and gzipped directory called lj.
Here are the detailed steps from your shell assuming you are running
shell > tar xvzf pyljclient-M.X.Y.tar.gz
Assuming you have extracted the lj directory in your home directory,
e.g. /home/you/, edit .bash_profile, and add the following:
- export PYTHONPATH
logout and then log back in or do source .bash_profile
shell > cd lj
shell > chmod +x lj_client.py
Edit the first line of lj_client.py and specify path to python, e.g.,
my python is at /usr/bin/python, so my first line looks like
You can find this information by typing which
python in your shell window.

You will download the project from CVS with this command. Simply add the
path to lj (in projects/lj) to your PYTHONPATH and you're ready to go. If
you make any changes to any of the files and feel that they deserves to
