Hi,  sudo apt-get install python-opencv python-wxgtk python-pip python-dev   Does not seem to work .  Tried python-wxgtk2.6 and 2.8 too.   
Error message :

Package python-wxgtk is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'python-wxgtk' has no installation candidate

Put  the following in my sources

# wxWidgets/wxPython repository at
deb gutsy-wx main
deb-src gutsy-wx main

Should I just install from source ?

You might like to look at mp_slipmap, which is a python class in MAVProxy. I wrote it when I had the same issue while writing MAVProxy.

Cheers, Tridge

Hi,  About a year ago, I read a post about how to contribute .   Not knowing where to start, I decided to write my one code.   I am building a pooltest.png boat.   It uses the Raspberry Pi, TDMA radio, Gstreamer.  Designed my owned my own hardware also.  Been using Linux since the late 1990's and prefer Debian.   I am trying to implement a GIS map so I can track the drone for long distances.  Been looking at Leaflet, but having trouble getting my head around it.  Used Georserver before, but it is too heavy.  Cam across Gnome Maps on Debian, but there is not much documentation.   I want to use GISmaps , GeoTiffs you can by  various government land offices.  Looking for an alternative to Geoserver and a simple map viewer that I can send UDP packets to using Python if possible.   I prefer using Python for ground control station and C for the vehicle.    Any ideas will be appreciated.   Thank you !
