Panda3d doesn't works on my Linux.


I have just installed Panda3d. The ppython-command is now avaiable. Because of I’m using ubuntu 7.04, I have converted a SuSE-RPM-File with alien to a DEB-File. The installation was successful.

But now:

tobias@tobias-laptop:~/local/development/stsquirrel$ ppython
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 1, in <module>
    import direct.directbase.DirectStart
ImportError: No module named direct.directbase.DirectStart

:frowning: I don’t know how to open the GreetingCard, because the Linux-Manual here is realy very baaaaad. (I don’t even understand anything of the Linux-Stuff here.)

Can somebody help me ?

Hi! :slight_smile:

Would you mind posting your file?

What does happen when you create a file with the following content?

import direct.directbase.DirectStart

This works very well for me. Btw: Why do you use the RPM-one anyway? There is a .deb file also which let you install Panda3D with ease using

dpkg-i dot-deb-file

Note the last posts at:

Make sure that you uninstall the current Panda3D version. :slight_smile:

Hope, that helps…
