I installed python-vpython succesfully, though when I try to import visual module in a python shell I get
ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Any ideas?

The error doesn't exist. I was trying to build the package in a tmpfs mount where I mounted it with 'noexec.' Silly me.

This definitely shouldn't happen - can you try to run the ./configure script in source tree from command line? What are the permissions of the ./configure file in src tree?

I am getting some permission error in build.

I just checked to be sure and yes, they changed the archive week ago, more than month after releasing if for the first time...

giniu commented on 2011-12-16 22:03

I don't believe it, they changed source third time without version bump? :| Ehh... anyway, thanks for noticing, I will fix it tomorrow.

Sorry, no Python 3 support until fonttools gets Python 3 support as official (VPython folks post modified, unofficial patch for it on their page, but it works with Python 3.1 only) - there is already some work on it, i.e. I modified the VPython patched version to support fonttools 2.3 and Python 2.7 and 3.2 at once, and sent it upstream to fonttools developer, but the patch does not work on current trunk svn. We are right now looking into integrating it - you can follow the progress on

After there will be python 3 enabled fonttools, this package will become python 3 based, and there will be new python2-vpython package. For now I did not wanted to bother with package rename when python 3 support is coming (keep in mind this package was uploaded not by me, and in time when python 2 was official. I'm aware it needs rename sooner or later, but I believe it's not the time yet).

python3 ?????

Seems they changed the archive without notifying. Current one was uploaded on 24'th Oct, and I updated the package to 5.72 on 23'th. I will check what changed and update md5 tomorrow. Thanks for noticing it (man, how I hate when upstream replaces packages without version bump!)
