    They should call the snippets library the PyGTK Snippets library. I had the impression that the code snippets would apply to more than just PyGTK. Otherwise this is a neat idea!

    UPDATE: It turns out we had a few dependencies missing. You can fix this with:

    sudo apt-get install python-gtksourceview python-gnomeprint

    We will get the packaged fixed soon, but this will get you up and running. Thanks for the feedback, folks!
