Question How to set the default version of wxPython in Ubuntu?

Hi Everybody,

I have installed wxPython on my Ubuntu 9.10. But when I type
"import wxPython" in "python environment it returns the following error.
It tries to run the previously installed one not the new one. (The new version is 2.6).

Does it need a PATH to be added in ".bashrc"? If so what should I write as a PATH for it?

I would be very grateful for any help.

With best regards,

>>> import wxPython
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "/scisoft/lib/python2.5/site-packages/wx-2.8-gtk2-ansi/wxPython/", line 15, in <module>
import _wx
File "/scisoft/lib/python2.5/site-packages/wx-2.8-gtk2-ansi/wxPython/", line 3, in <module>
from _core import *
File "/scisoft/lib/python2.5/site-packages/wx-2.8-gtk2-ansi/wxPython/", line 15, in <module>
import wx._core

import _core_

Hi, I answered your other post. Looks like you cross posted this.

( I do not know how to delete some of my posts!!!)

What you suggested was more than I could understand.
Would you please explain it the way you would explain to an IDIOT.


$ find /usr -name*
