Bittorrent. "ImportError: No module named __future__"
Please help. I am trying to get Bittorrent working.

I have installed Bittorrent 4.0.3 and in Opera, done the file association application/x-bittorrent, /usr/bin/ and extension torrent. When I click on a torrent file in my browser the save as dialouge comes up and shows as the app to use but when I click open the dialouge disappears and nothing seems to happen.

I have never used BT before so I assume after the above action I am meant to get some sort of gui. When I try and run from the command line I get "ImportError: No module named __future__"

I am using Mandrake 10.1
python v2.3.4
gtk v2.4.9 (gtk+2.0-2.4.9-9mdk, installed to /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/gtk-2.4.9)
pygtk v2.7.0

Any suggestions much appreciated, BashTin.

Just for fun - crack open that .py file, and comment out the line importing that module - and then try...

Hi PenguinPwrdBox here are the first few lines of

#from __future__ import division

import os
import sys

assert sys.version_info >= (2, 3), "Install Python 2.3 or greater"

#from threading import Event

import gtk
import gobject

from BitTorrent.GUI import *
from BitTorrent import Desktop
from BitTorrent import version
from BitTorrent import configfile
from BitTorrent.defaultargs import get_defaults
from BitTorrent.makemetafile import make_meta_files
from BitTorrent.parseargs import makeHelp

When I comment out the 'futures' line I get similar errors about 'import os', 'import sys', 'import gtk', etc.

Obviously looking for something and not finding it.

Cheers, BashTin.

Have you tried your script without Opera, downloading the .torrent and running the script on it? I always start from the bottom and then go up as thing work :)

Hi baslleus,

Yes it all works fine from the command line. I just want to get the Pyhton GUI working.
