I'm trying to setup the trac, this is the commands that I used:

sudo apt-get install trac python-setuptools libapache2-mod-python enscript

sudo mkdir /var/www/trac
sudo trac-admin /var/www/trac/repos initenv

but I'm getting the following error:

File "/usr/local/bin/trac-admin", line 5, in <module>
    from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/", line 2659, in <module>
    parse_requirements(__requires__), Environment()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/", line 546, in resolve
    raise DistributionNotFound(req)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: Trac==0.12.2

Obviously trac-admin requires Trac==0.12.2. The trac version in the ubuntu natty repositories is 0.11.7-4 (trac ubuntu package).

You could try to install trac 0.12.2 in natty using easy_install. That's a python module that lets you automatically download, build, install, and manage Python packages.

So try:

sudo easy_install Trac==0.12.2
