Python Packages Required in GSAS-II

At present, GSAS-II is being developed with Python version 2 (2.7.2 as I write this). This is because some of the packages that GSAS-II requires are not yet supported or are not yet well tested in Python 3. Note that the following packages that are not distributed as a part of Python are required in GSAS-II:

note that on linux, wx python requires a backend, usually GTk

note that matplotlib requires a backend for display, which should be wx here

These packages must be installed after Python is installed, or preferably you can install a Python distribution that includes all of these packages [See platform-specific nstallation instructions: Windows, Mac OS X or Linux). At present, if any of these packages are not present in the version of Python used to start GSAS-II, the program will not run.
