Beginner problems

I’ve been messing around with Panda3D a bit, but i’m rather new to programming in general so i’ve been following the P3D manual. Yesterday, I was able to load models and such, but as of today, nothing I previously wrote is working. I went back and tried from square one, and copied and pasted the sample code directly from the manual: … ng_Panda3D

But I still get this error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 1, in
from direct.showbase.ShowBase import ShowBase
File “C:\Panda3D-1.8.1\direct\showbase\”, line 33, in
import Loader
File “C:\Panda3D-1.8.1\direct\showbase\”, line 5, in
from panda3d.core import *
File “C:\Users\me\Desktop\”, line 3, in
from direct.showbase.ShowBase import ShowBase
ImportError: cannot import name ShowBase

**** End of process output ****

It was working just yesterday. Same location and contents.
Help? :confused:

Try running via ppython instead of python.

Just tried it. Still getting ImportError

Ah. Your file is named; this conflicts with the that Panda3D already uses. Rename your into something else.

Yup, it was that one file name that was throwing me off on everything. Now I can continue on with the manual. Thanks!
