I just installed pyNeighborhood on a freshly set up Xubuntu 11.10-machine via apt-get from the official repositories, however it won't start.

Error when starting via terminal:

user@pc:~$ pyNeighborhood 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/pyNeighborhood", line 23, in <module>
    from pyneighborhood.mainwindow import MainWindow
ImportError: No module named pyneighborhood.mainwindow

Anyone got an idea what could have gone wrong here? Dependencies of the package should be fulfilled...

Thanks -obs-

The pyneighborhood package has been orphaned: - Try 0.5.4 from PPA: – medigeek Jan 28 '12 at 23:03

It works on lubuntu, it should work on xubuntu, at least run and appear normally.

Check that you have python-support installed:

sudo apt-get install python-support

Try purging and installing again.

sudo apt-get purge pyneighborhood
sudo apt-get install pyneighborhood

Also, please check that you are using a package from the official repositories. I know it's freshly installed, but perhaps it's a repository mirror problem. This command will show the currently used version:

apt-cache policy pyneighborhood

This is my output:

  Installed: 0.5.1
  Candidate: 0.5.1
  Version table:
 *** 0.5.1 0
        500 oneiric/universe i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
