I'm trying to make it work on linux, I already fixed the installer to work on linux and title image :)
I'm getting an error when I run Nuke
Can't create page 'uk.co.thefoundry.HotKeyPanel'
I see you guys hard coded a few paths for windows, could this be part of the issue?

0 # zuo yizhen 2014-07-29 07:52
Thanks for your support, we development this tool based on windows,so maybe there's some codes not fit on Linux,we will try run it in difference os in next version.thanks ;-)
0 # Val Potanka 2014-07-30 22:44
Yeah, the setup.pyw and menu.py directory is set to 'D:/nukemenu'.
After adjusting those directories to point to the 'nukemenu' folder the preferences, layout, menu items load fine.

Now the only problem is loading the widgets. The 'makeUI' command seems to have back slashes mixed with forward slashes ("X:\nukemenu\/ menu.py", for line 52 and 32)
0 # dirk diggler 2014-08-04 08:12
It loads up now but the wukong browser is empty. I changed the directory from D:/ to C:/ but none of the supposed flame buttons or functionality is available.
0 # Varun Hadkar 2014-07-27 09:08
Speechless! This looks badass. Should be calling it Nuke - Flame skin
0 # Robert Moggach 2014-09-17 21:42
pre-foundry the goal was to create something called "Fluke"
0 # emma yang 2014-07-27 10:11
cool, I lie it, action seems like flame`s action :D

Installation failed! How to install?
Did not find reg_Env
0 # emma yang 2014-07-27 21:55
At first I found the problem, and then I found the need to install the python 2.7.2 and pyQt4for 2.7.2, but still found they couldn't open setup.
I use a command prompt running Python setup.pyw will be installed
But another machine I can directly open the installation, I don't know why.
0 # wei cheng 2014-07-28 01:37
I am also, entangled for a long time......
0 # zuo yizhen 2014-07-29 06:14
you can find reg_Env.bat file in the root folder after you install Wukong
0 # German Jarrys 2014-07-29 13:05
+2 # gilbert chu 2014-07-30 08:16
still stock at running setup.py

I set up python 2.7.3 and PyQt4-4.11.1-gpl-Py2.7-Qt4.8.6-x64.exe

and it just can`t open setup.py

please be more specific about installation, thanks a lot!
+1 # Val Potanka 2014-07-30 21:40
You need to download:


After installation you need to replace the sip.pyd in your "WUKONG" folder with the version provided in C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages.

(PyQt4-4.11.1 won't work)
0 # Sri kanth 2014-07-31 02:02
Looks Awesome..!
0 # XIAObao CHAN 2014-07-31 07:55
Two screens will be nice,but one screen can still be OK!So cool the interface. :lol:
0 # Nick Pittas 2014-07-31 13:00
Some paths like D:/nukemenu, seem to be hardcoded, and since I do not have a D: drive it wont work. Also this "X:\nukemenu\/ menu.py" error keeps coming up and no widgets or hotkeys work
0 # zuo yizhen 2014-08-01 06:16
sorry for that,we will try to fix it as soon as possible.
0 # Sean Wallitsch 2014-07-31 15:48
Any chance you could upload a new version using the original .py files instead of the compiled bytecode (.pyc)? Bytecode is a pain to decompile and we don't have any comments you might have written into the file. It also makes it much harder for people to troubleshoot and fix the hardcoded windows filepaths, etc.

Do you have a github or bitbucket for this?
0 # zuo yizhen 2014-08-01 06:14
so sorry we can not release the original.py file right now,cause we are still developing this script.And this is still beta 1.0,we will release the code when we finish it,thanks for your support.
-2 # Sean Wallitsch 2014-08-01 13:44
Okay... It's not like your code is hidden or safe this way. We CAN decompile it easily, it's just a pain to do, and we don't get your comments.

Because of stuff like your hardcoded filepaths, the only thing the .pyc files is preventing are people being able to quickly modify, use and test your tool.
0 # haizheng xiang 2014-08-01 19:22
Hi Sean
Please wait for some time, we will release, py file, as a programmer, I believe you can understand, let everybody see bad grammar and without finishing off the content will be a how make me blush. :oops:
0 # Robert Moggach 2014-09-17 21:44
pyc's can be decompiled... do a google search... alot of people offer the service... usually like $25-50 via paypal
0 # Sean Wallitsch 2014-09-17 21:47
I can get $25-50 just for running a simple script? I'm in the wrong line of work.

It does lose the comments though.
0 # Nick Pittas 2014-08-01 14:34
Can you please tell us the exact version of Python and PyQT, cause the main issue is it cannot load at all
This is the message nuke gives

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "D:\nukemenu\/m enu.py", line 52, in makeUI
NameError: global name 'hotkey' is not defined
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "D:\nukemenu\/m enu.py", line 32, in makeUI
NameError: global name 'WUKONG' is not defined

Also do we need the 32 or 64 version of Pyhton/PyQT?
0 # Nick Pittas 2014-08-01 15:26
Well it seems that nuke's python and PyQT version has some problems.

I tried to import this in nuke and there is an error
from PyQt4.QtGui import *
from PyQt4.QtCore import *

ImportError: DLL load failed: %1 is not a valid Win32 application.

Maybe this is the cause of my problems. Tried both with Python 2.7.3 and PyQt 4.10 (and all it's variable versions) but nothing seems to work

Any advise?
0 # haizheng xiang 2014-08-01 19:10
Hi, Nike :lol:
My English is very bad, so I can only use googel translation

First of all, you must install Python and pyQt, by default, When Python is installed, python can not run normally, System variables to find the name of path ,and add the python path to it (C:\Python27)

( sometimes,pytho n will Collapse in Windows,Ido not know why,you must reinstall Python and pyQt )

And then in the successful implementation of the provided setup file, will automatically copy the SIP to the C:\Python27\Lib \site-packages. If not, please manually copy. Because some feedback I have mentioned the installation will lose this file

After that, you need replace layout1.xml and preferences8.0. nk what I provide

If this does not work, I guess you using nuke7x.? Because my version is currently only for nuke8x.
0 # haizheng xiang 2014-08-01 19:27
In the beta, I put the whole installation path set in the D, if it gives you the use of trouble, I am sorry, I think very soon, I will release the official version, and set to a free choice of path
0 # dirk diggler 2014-08-03 18:21
I think the path is giving me that error. I start up nuke, it gives me this warning

Parse error at line 23, column 61:
Can't create page 'uk.co.thefound ry.HotKeyPanel' .
+1 # Wouter Gilsing 2014-08-03 09:09
Very cool, and though I'm not interested in changing my entire interface at all, I see some features that would be very cool to have as individual Python scripts.

Especially the "shake to disconnect" like in Shake/Houdini. Do you see any change of releasing this piece of code as a separate python script so artists are able to use this in the regular Nuke interface?

I think it would be quite popular.
0 # MARK PINHEIRO 2016-09-03 11:52
Now that I've had a look at your w_hotbox I think I'll take a look at this. Seems to be a wealth of customisation possibilities!
0 # dirk diggler 2014-08-05 10:18
I start up nuke 8 with no errors but the menu is not there. The layout is there with the vectorscope and all that stuff but the flame like buttons and functionality are missing. I think it has something to do with all the python and the D: directory. I changed them all to C: but it still not showing up.
0 # dirk diggler 2014-08-05 10:42
It has something to do with the widgets.
\nukemenu\/menu .py
0 # dirk diggler 2014-08-05 10:55
Do I have to go in each python script and change all the directories from D: to C: for it work in the lib folder and main nukemenu python scripts?
0 # dirk diggler 2014-08-05 19:18
I got it working now. I just to change one of my drive letters and drop the nukemenu in there. It would have taken too long and I might have messed the pyhton script if I would have had to gone into each script and change D: to C:
0 # haizheng xiang 2014-08-06 08:12
Hi dirk
My English is very poor, so I can only use googel translation

In the Beta, I set all path in D:/nukemenu, next month We will update the final version , We will change function whith arbitary dirvers for setup path.
I hope you guys can distribute it to for friends or colleagues. there advices could be valuable for us and we can enhence the functions and thanks for your help and enjoy the next one
