Hi All, I have downloaded the pymod branch from the repo and can build the binary and the KLayout Python module (on RHEL 6). My Python is in a non-standard location (I compiled it myself). After I build the binary and install it via the prefix, KLayout "mostly" works. I can't save .gds, but I can save .oas. This also occurs when I built the klayout module via
However (interestingly), when I install the klayout Python module which Thomas Lima published on pypi.org, things work. In that case, the (long) install time suggests that essentially the module is compiled just like python setup.py install.
Any idea why the provided setup.py file doesn't (maybe) enable the gds export (is this a plugin)?
Also, I copied the pymod/klayout directory into my site-packages, but this didn't work either, the .so files with the _ at the beginning of the file name weren't found.
Let me know if I can help debug this issue although given that the pypi.org install works I have what I need.
Best regards, Erwin
