mayavi with graph-tool

Hello all,

I am pretty new to graph-tool and trying it because of the fast speed.
However, it seems that graph-tool cannot work together with mlab in mayavi.

I am basically planning to plot a 3D graph using mlab. But when I import
mlab from mayavi, the program always prints the following warning and then
becomes frozen. I don't know why. Is it the problem of gtk? I just want to
use graph-tool data structure and algorithms

output :

/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gi/ Warning: cannot register
existing type `GtkWidget'
  g_type = info.get_g_type()

This warning indicates you are mixing gtk2 and gtk3. Just so you know, the
import for gtk3 looks like:

    from gi.repository import Gtk

The equivalent for gtk2 looks like this:

    import gtk

I hope that can steer you in the right direction, cheers!

This is correct. You cannot mix gtk2 and gtk3 in the same program.

If you don't need to use the drawing routines of graph-tool, you can
avoid importing gtk3 by not importing anything from the graph_tool.draw

Simply avoid doing "from graph_tool.all import *" and import only the
submodules you need.


Thanks you! That solved the problem.

BTW, I never use "from graph_tool.all import *", instead I use "import
graph_tool.all as gt", which also caused the above problem.

Can the draw module in graph_tool plot 3d graph and simply interactively
view it ? I can only find 2d examples in the doc. That's why I turned to

There is not 3D drawing at the moment.
