comment No such file or directory: '/usr/lib/python2.7/sitecustomize.py' but it is there in red color
Have you looked at file/directory permissions throughout the "chain" to get to the file? Remember dirs need to have 'x' permission eventhough they are not executable entities, it permits the search to happen. You could help everybody if you included an ls -ld of the file and each of its directories above it as well as the output of the id -a for the specific user.

more detail would be nice like outputs from netstat -r, ifconfig -a. Have you examined your error logs?

Write programming to make it work the way you want. Isn't that part of the beauty of Linux/UNIX systems, if it doesn't work the way you want to program what you want. In windows, you have no option, its a take it or leave it proposition.
