Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I am trying to teach myself python. When I run the interactive help from the python console in gedit and ask it to list all modules it runs the configuration for the speech dispatcher. I googled and found the above bug report on launchpad, it seems to contain two different methods of patching the problem, but I am unsure how to use either of them, being a relative linux noob. I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.

Thanks for your time!

The patches and fixes probably shouldn't be applied by yourself. Instead unless you're an expert you should wait for the fix to be packaged. Please report bugs in launchpad when you find them here:

If you would like a list of modules, then you should look in the pyshared directory: /user/share/pyshared you can also look at various python documentation sources online, almost all python modules are packaged for Ubuntu and can be installed easily enough via apt-get install.
