superkaramba theme not working because of python-devel

hello everyone,.
i'm newbie to linux, and after all the searching i made and couldnt solve my problem i desided to ask here. i'm using SuSe 9.0.

i installed superkaramba 0.33 rpm with all other packages that required for this.
i installed the required
later verison than that i have on my distribution cds..

and when i start superkaramba i get this error >>

Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>
Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix>
Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]
'import site' failed; use -v for traceback

when i try to start liquid_weather.theme i get this >>

superkaramba: TaskManager::TaskManager()
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/o-/Desktop/liquid_weather_plus/", line 13, in ?
import os
ImportError: No module named os
What does ImportError mean?

It means that I couldn't load a python add-on for liquid_weather.theme
If this is a regular theme and doesn't use python
extensions, then nothing is wrong.

and the theme starts like a transparent background, no graphic.

before using the rpm package i tried to compile the superkaramba.tar.gz file
and when i do the make command i get a similar errors for cant finding the or smtn..(sorry can't remember)..

excuse my bad english. hope i expressed my problem adequate, thank you in advance!

####Your path might be different ###############

Try putting the following in your .bashrc and open a new terminal, for the settings to take effect


I have the above path in my environment... see if it works for you...
