View Full Version : [ubuntu] Accessing Enthought: Python

February 28th, 2010, 12:09 AM
I just installed the Enthought package that has loads of modules available for scientific computing with python. When I access python in my terminal and try to import a module it can't locate it. I tried setting an env variable to where my enthought package was located but that didn't fix it.

Do I need to set an environmental variable for python?

The instruction state:
This EPD-6.0.1 installer provides a Python build for Unix systems.
It includes Python 2.6.4.

Install Notes

* A full installation installs everything (except menu items) under the
target install directory. All that is necessary to use EPD then is to
place the directory


in your path, or to explicitly call the binaries within that directory.
Note that the installer will not modify your environment or .profile files
for you.

So I went into my .bashrc and add:

I run python in the terminal, try to import a module and no success.
