I also uninstalled yumex and reinstalled and that didn't help.

I still can not get rid of: ImportError: No module named cairo

I did have cairo-dock and cairo-clock installed, but I uninstalled them.

Please have a look here ..
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...7/#post3826135
.. post # 7 and 8 ..

# yum update PackageKit

There is a bug causing strange errors in the other
connected applications. Who knows .. there may be a
solution this way.
In fact, no module named ' cairo.py ' exists in any
Fedora 12 package.

pycairo-1.8.6-2.fc12.x86_64

pycairo-1.8.6-2.fc12 is a package , not a module.

http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...n_ch28s02.html
"Module Definition"


A module ' cairo ' would be named ' cairo.py '
.. not cairo.so .. or something else.

I had a similar problem with Yumex, couldn't find: ImportError: No module named cairo .

I Installed pycairo-1.8.6-2.fc12 and that solved my problem.

What do you mean ? This thread is about yumex only.
Mark as solved, please, when you think you have told
what you did to solve the original issue.
