@sdp8483 In case you are still interested, I just pushed a new AUR package called pycam-git. The pycam maintainers did not tag an official release in a long time but added tons of useful new features. My package uses the most recent development version and also does not seem to cause the gtkglext issue. Feedback welcome :)

Fatal Python error: can't initialize module gtk.gtkgl

Looks like current versions of gtkglext are broken (see also Installing gtkglext-pangox seems to work on my device.

I get the following error when starting pycam from a terminal:

Fatal Python error: can't initialize module gtk.gtkgl

Need to add python2-enum to the list of dependencies. The processes tab won't work without it. See

I adopted the and updated the package.
Thanks a lot for the PKGBUILD and finding/temporaily patching that GLUT problem, Yinameah. Works perfectly fine, i made only some small changes.

I gave a try to update the PKGBUILD for the new vO.6.1.

It works for me but I'm no expert in Archlinux Package.

In case someone is interested :
