Some kind readers have left comments on this blog regarding segmentation faults occurring when trying to run Rur-ple using Ubuntu linux. I finally got around to installing a vmware version of ubuntu so that I could check for myself and believe I found the source of the bug. I would appreciate if someone actually using Ubuntu could verify.
Near the bottom of rur_start.py, a splash screen is started with 100 (milliseconds) as a default. Changing that number to 1000 removed the segmentation fault when running rur-ple in a virtual ubuntu environment.
There is at least one other bug in rur-ple when using a version of wxPython greater than 2.6; it is in lightning.py. Changing "event.KeyCode()" to "event.GetKeyCode()" apparently solves the problem.
Of course, I would be interested in hearing about any other bugs that have been encountered so that I could do a final cleanup before finally releasing the 1.0 version.
