Re: Orca on Ubuntu LTS 6.06

Hi Chida:

I think the problem is that you've installed Orca in a place that Python
cannot find by default.  You need to tell Python where to look.  Here's
a snippet from the Orca FAQ at

"Do I have to install into /usr?

No. You can install to and run orca from nearly anywhere you want,
including directories owned by you. When you run ./configure, you can
pass it a prefix that points to some other location (e.g., --prefix=
$HOME/orca). If you do this, you need to define PYTHONPATH to point to
the lib/python2.4/site-packages directory (e.g., PYTHONPATH=
$HOME/orca/lib/python2.4/site-packages). You can then run orca from this
new location (e.g., $HOME/orca/bin/orca)."

Hope this helps,

I'm trying to install orca 0.2.6 on Ubuntu 6.06 (32bit)  on my Dell

Orca compiles, but gives the following error at runtime,

jack laptop:/home/jack# /opt/gnome-orca/bin/orca --setup 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/opt/gnome-orca/bin/orca", line 30, in ?
    import orca.orca
ImportError: No module named orca.orca

Any clues?
