I typed python3, then import gi and this prints no errors.

I just opened a terminal, typed python3, confirmed it is version 3, then typed out from gi.repository import Gtk, and pressed enter. I also tried saving some of the example files from that tutorial I linked, but they reported the same error that Gtk was not found. I search Debian's repositories, but cannot determine which package might contain the Gtk needed by Python.

Oh, maybe the word is not "IDE", but "IDLE" or some similar name, run by typing python3 in a terminal window.

How can I check if that is possible? In BIOS, I only see the hard drive and CD-ROM drive listed as options. Should network be listed somewhere in the boot order menu?

comment Does BitTorrent work in the background after quitting qBitTorrent?
I wasn't necessarily thinking qBitTorrent was doing the downloading, but maybe bittorrent itself was told to run by qBitTorrent, and bittorrent kept running in the background.

comment Why does only mplayer play music in Debian?
Should both`Alsa and PulseAudio be installed together, or is it one must use one or the other?

I installed everything with *gstream* in the name found in aptitude. Why does mplayer` not reply on this? It uses something else?

In some cases, the software, when run from the terminal, reported missing codec errors, but I fixed them. The players play the file.

comment Why is “Asking all remaining processes to terminate” failing during shutdown?
No, the text moves by too fast to see, but the list had at least 20 items. This happens about 1 in 3 times I shutdown. It looked similar to what one sees when one types top, but with fewer columns of data.

I have bash 4.2.37(1).

comment Why did BASH print “bash: cd: write error: Success”?
The /home partition has much space available. I cannot find anything strange in ".bash_history", it is set to read and write only for the owner. Whenever I quit a terminal, the data from that terminal still goes there. Is is possible this came up because I was running multiple terminal windows at the same time?

type -a cd prints "cd is a shell builtin".

typeset -f, alias, and which cd all return nothing, and the other files only contain PATH=~/.context/tex/texmf-linux/bin/:$PATH.

comment Why is my keyboard typing the wrong letters?
The computer does not appear to have an xorg.conf file. At least not in the places where the Debian wiki says there should be this file.

After typing halt and a password, /var/log/slim.log has a line saying "slim: pam_authentication(): Authentication failure".

comment Why is my keyboard typing the wrong letters?
Can it be the keyboard's problem, if the problem only occurs in one application, Iceweasel, but not in other applications?
