I have a very basic problem.
1) I have downloaded the example scripts from Bitbucket, unzipped them and made sure they are on my PYTHONPATH.
2) I am using Python 2.7.9 |Anaconda 2.2.0 (32-bit)
3) I get an error:
import illustris_python as il
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 1, in
ImportError: No module named illustris_python
4) I'm new to python.
Thank you in advance for any help.
If you do:
then really you see the path here where you have placed the illustris_python directory? (indeed you should make sure that whatever you unzipped is a directory named exactly this).
Dear Dylan Nelson,
Thanks! Indeed, the file had been unzipped into a directory named "illustris-illustris_python-8205acb4e8c8". Renaming it to "illustris_python" produces no import error. But there was an even more basic error prior to this one. I did set PYTHONPATH in my .bashrc file but forget to include the export command... Thanks a lot for the tip ("import sys" etc), which clearly showed something was missing indeed. I apologize for the basic issue.
