Help to install Django. When I extract the file the contents have been just dumped all over my Home folder and when I try to either import django or
sudo install it I get errors.
Unless you need some cutting-edge newest version of Django, I would recommend installing it from Ubuntu's software repositories instead. From a terminal you can do this by typing
sudo apt-get install python-django
The most popular free open source software needed is available in Ubuntu's software repositories so that you won't have to do installations manually.
If you want to list all the subpackages of django that are available, you may use the command
apt-cache search django python
If you prefer not to use the terminal for installation, you can open up Ubuntu Software Centre and search for the packages there. You might have to check "Show technical items" in the bottom left corner for some packages.
