First post here.

I saw the same problem here:

but there was no solution provided afaik.

>From Earth System Grid I downloaded the precompiled version of PyNGL and ncl:


I installed PyNGL in /usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/

ls -la /usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/

-rw-r--r-- 1 root staff 6 2011-02-05 14:57 Ngl.pth
drwxr-sr-x 3 root staff 4096 2011-02-05 14:57 PyNGL/
-rw-r--r-- 1 root staff 540 2011-02-05 14:57 PyNGL-1.3.1-py2.6.egg-info

and ncl_ncarg-5.2.1 in /usr/local/{bin,include,lib}

I then set PYTHONPATH to

export PYTHONPATH="~/PlanetaryClimateCourseware/CoursewareModules:/usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages"

but no go to load the PyNGL module:

Python 2.6.6 (r266:84292, Sep 15 2010, 15:52:39)
[GCC 4.4.5] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import Ngl
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named Ngl

I must do something really stupid.
Any help?
