View Full Version : Python using compiled VTE library

EDIT: Problem solved.

I'm working on VTE (https://code.launchpad.net/vte), so I can use it in Python.

I can compile their source files successfully (using autogen.sh and make), but I do not know how to make a 'vtemodule.so' file that I can actually use in my python programs.

python ./demo-test.py #using the simple demo program they provide in the source files

#!/usr/bin/env python
import vte

I get the error message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./vte-demo.py", line 6, in <module>
import vte
ImportError: No module named vte

I have no idea what to do. Please help.

My build process so far command line:

bzr branch lp:vte
cd vte
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig
cd python/
python ./vte-demo.py

The make and make install process do not seem to produce a vte-module that python sees on my system.
