Installing Marble's Python Bindings

General requirements

Marble's Python Bindings only depend on PyQt and SIP and do not require the kdebindings-python package provided by some distributions (these are only for some other KDE Python bindings).

Getting the Dependencies

  • deb-based distributions (Debian, Ubuntu...):
$ sudo apt-get install python-sip python-qt4
  • OpenSuSE: All the necessary dependencies:
$ sudo zypper install python-sip python-qt4
  • Fedora/RHEL: All the dependencies used for building kdelibs can be installed by running:
$ sudo yum install python-sip python-qt4
  • Arch Linux: All the dependencies used for building kdelibs can be installed by running:
$ sudo pacman -Sy python-sip python-pyqt4

Installing the Marble Python bindings

To install the Marble Python bindings we will need to compile Marble from source. The following commands will download and compile Marble:

$ git clone git://anongit.kde.org/marble.git ~/.marble -b KDE/4.11 $ cd ~/.marble $ mkdir -p build $ cd build $ cmake ../ -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DEXPERIMENTAL_PYTHON_BINDINGS=TRUE -DQTONLY=FALSE -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local $ make $ sudo make install

On Arch Linux you will have to add the following options to cmake so it looks like this:

$ cmake ../ -DQT_QMAKE_EXECUTABLE=qmake-qt4 -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DEXPERIMENTAL_PYTHON_BINDINGS=TRUE -DQTONLY=FALSE

For an example of build instructions visit Marble's sources page. Just make sure to add the -DEXPERIMENTAL_PYTHON_BINDINGS=TRUE -DQTONLY=FALSE flags to cmake
