Horst says 'grab it from 'experimental'. After some frustrating searches
I couldn't figure out  how to do that.

To your /etc/apt/sources.list add where you have your normal debian
repositories ("stable", "testing") another entry "experimental".
deb experimental main contrib non-free

Then, do:
apt-get install libwxgtk2.5-python

And you are done


apt-get install  libwxgtk2.5-python -t experimental

And please(!) add a file


with about the contents:

Package: *
Pin: release a=testing
Pin-Priority: 501

Package: *
Pin: release a=unstable
Pin-Priority: 50

Package: *
Pin: release a=experimental
Pin-Priority: 5

This ensures that you normally grab the files from testing and only at
explicite request (as pointed above with "-t experimental") from other
not so stable distributions.  This keeps your system stable most of the
time and breaks it only if you are asking for this break.

Kind regards


PS:   man apt_preferences
    is the manual to read ...
