Ubuntu 13.04 Enable Issues. Again!

Do you remember this error?

numpy.distutils.system_info.X11NotFoundError: X11 libraries not found.

It still presents in Ubuntu 13.04 >:-[

How you can fix it? Create file ~/.numpy-site.cfg with this content:

library_dirs = /usr/lib64:/usr/lib:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
include_dirs = /usr/include:/usr/include/X11

And also create symlink for libX11.so:

sudo ln -s libX11.so.<version> /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libX11.so

For example:

sudo ln -s libX11.so.6.3.0 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libX11.so

But that doesn’t help you with enable kiva’s problem https://github.com/enthought/enable/issues/74
