Did you solve the problem ?
Comment 2 Thierry De Leeuw 2005-09-05 06:20:17 UTC
No I didn't.

Do I need to provide some extra information? Which?
Comment 3 Bruno Coudoin 2005-09-05 18:43:03 UTC
Please try to remove the python plugin in:
(Check the it's location).

You maybe able to run gcompris without them.

If this doesn't work, run gcompris -D in a console and post here the log.
