ppython not working

So the guide told me to use “ppython” to avoid this message:
ImportError: No module named direct.showbase.ShowBase
However, I am still getting it.

We have no information to go on. Which operating system are you using? Which version of Panda3D did you install - or did you build it from source? Which exact process did you follow?

One common way to get this problem is if you have a conflicting module called direct.py which conflicts with Panda’s direct module. If this is the problem, you need to rename your direct.py to something else.
