    Hi everybody,

    I am trying to run VPython on FC3. The installation was fine. But when I
    "import visual", an error occurs:

    """Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
    File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/visual/", line 15, in ?
    import array_backend
    File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/visual/", line
    1, in ?
    import cvisual
    ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file
    or directory"""

    It seems Python cannot open/find the file "", but it
    definitely lies in the lib directory:


    Does anybody know a solution for this problem?

    Thanks very much,

    You need libgtk-(open)gl package (i don't know the exact name in FC).

    Actually the gtkgl was installed, I can find it at /usr/local/lib:

    Check for presence of /usr/local/lib in /etc/
    Append it if necessary. Don't forget to run ldconfig afterwards.
