I building applications using Qt4 to develop the UI and python 3.2 OS UBUNTU 10.04 Python 3.2 is installed but fails the following

from PyQt4.QtGui import *
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in <module>
    from PyQt4.QtGui import *
ImportError: /usr/local/lib/python3.2/site-packages/PyQt4/ undefined symbol: PyUnicodeUCS4_AsLatin1String

I've attempted to install python to use UCS-4 but have not been able to do so. Python 2.6 on the machine performs without a problem import objects/modules from Qt4.

How do I go about configuring Python 3.2 to work in UCS-4 environment?

I think Ubuntu compiled Pythons have wrong UCS-4 setting and you need to build your own if you want to change it. – Mikko Ohtamaa Sep 10 '11 at 18:21
