Aw: Python newbie here! No module named settings

Discussion in 'Python' started by Martin Brochhaus, Jun 2, 2011.

  1. I can only guess.

    1) You can delete "import helper" as that is never used in the code and would raise another "no module" exception.

    2) You can delete "import settings" and just insert some integers further down where it is used (settings.width and settings.height)

    OR

    - you can make the folder where your script resides a python module by adding a __init__.py file
    - then add a settings.py
    - put height = 100 and width = 100 into settings.py
    - you should no longer get that error.

    You probably took that script out of a bigger context. Does it eventually come with a zip-file containing some more files (such as __init__.py and settings.py)?

    Best regards,
    Martin

    Hey,

    Thanks for your help. I looked into the source directory and both the
    files are there! Its working now :)

    But somehow it worked in Python on Windows installation without any
    such problem. Was using Python 2.7 on Win.

    Anyways, thanks a lot for your help. :)

    Thanks,
    Neeraj
