I messed up my wxPython install (Eclipse Configuration Issue)

    The wxPython group is a bit stale compared to this group, so I'll give
    it a shot :)

    (READ: Originally when I started htis post, Python 2.5 at the shell
    did not work (identical behavior to eclipse). I'm not sure why, but
    it has since worked fine with no problems. Not sure whats going on
    there... I didn't change anything. Anyways...)

    Ok so I am having this problem. I am using OS X 10.4. I use
    MacPython and installed wxPython a few months back, and it worked
    great. Well I haven't done any wx development lately, and now that
    I'm getting back into it I can't get wx to work properly. I'm using
    Eclipse, too.

    Python 2.5 at Shell: works just fine
    $ python
    >>> import wx


    OLD projects in Eclipse: import wx works fine
    NEW projects in Eclipse (since I have started working wx again after a
    few months):
    import wx
    /Users/frikk/Documents/workspace/Bili_UI/src/wx.py:3:
    DeprecationWarning: The wxPython compatibility package is no longer
    automatically generated or actively maintained. Please switch to the
    wx package as soon as possible.
    from wxPython.wx import *
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/Users/frikk/Documents/workspace/Bili_UI/src/nokia_fkscrn.py",
    line 37, in <module>
    import wx
    File "/Users/frikk/Documents/workspace/Bili_UI/src/wx.py", line 3,
    in <module>
    from wxPython.wx import *
    File "//Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/
    python2.5/site-packages/wx-2.8-mac-ansi/wxPython/__init__.py", line
    15, in <module>
    import _wx
    File "//Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/
    python2.5/site-packages/wx-2.8-mac-ansi/wxPython/_wx.py", line 3, in
    <module>
    from _core import *
    File "//Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/
    python2.5/site-packages/wx-2.8-mac-ansi/wxPython/_core.py", line 15,
    in <module>
    import wx._core
    ImportError: No module named _core

    I feel like this may be a path issue? Any ideas on what else to look
    for? Both sys.path statements are the same, and I'm not sure what else
    I could be causing it - some configuration perhaps in Eclipse that is
    not being set correctly for newer projects? I also choose 'Python 2.5'
    from in eclipse - and it points to the same location for both
    projects.. Path:
    >>> import sys
    >>> sys.path


    ['', '/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/
    site-packages/setuptools-0.6c8-py2.5.egg', '/Library/Frameworks/
    Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/site-packages/
    Pygments-0.9-
    py2.5.egg', '/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/
    python25.zip', '/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/
    python2.5', '/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/
    python2.5/plat-darwin', '/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/
    Versions/
    2.5/lib/python2.5/plat-mac', '/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/
    Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/plat-mac/lib-scriptpackages', '/Library/
    Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/lib-tk', '/
    Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/lib-
    dynload', '/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/
    python2.5/site-packages', '/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/
    Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/site-packages/wx-2.8-mac-ansi']

    Any suggestions would be great - its probably something pretty
    minor... Thanks!

    Rename your script wx.py to something that doesn't clash with the installed
    modules, e.g. my_wx.py. And don't forget to remove

    /Users/frikk/Documents/workspace/Bili_UI/src/wx.pyc # note the .pyc suffix

    too.

    What does that mean? The wxPython group is almost always very quick to
    respond with relevant answers.

    As to your question, I think Peter is correct. Your wx.py and wx.pyc
    files are masking the wx package.

    I didn't mean anything by it, I promise. This group is just amazing -
    there are always very active topics and I get responses in no time.
    The wxPython group I noticed only has had recent discussions a few
    times in the past month, and their subscribers aren't as high as the
    Python group.

    That worked. You guys are awesome, thank you! I can't believe I named
    that test script wx.py - duh. Thank you for your help!

    That's weird...I subscribe to the wxPython group and I got 10 digests
    on the 28th. Typically they send out 2-5 digests per day. Where are
    you getting this information?

    This looks up-to-date: http://lists.wxwidgets.org/pipermail/wxpython-users/

    No problem. Glad it worked! That's always something to look for when
    you get that type of error, btw.

    There _is_ a difference between quality and volume. Also, in some
    cases high quality goes along with low volume, as in others do high
    volume and low quality.
