How to get vPython working?
I'm running on Mac OS X with Python 2.6 , and recently downloaded vPython. Upon installation it also installs the Boost libraries for Python. Now, when I try to import the vPython libraries ('visual'), the following occurs:
>>>import visual Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/site-packages/visual/__init__.py", line 59, in <module> import cvisual AttributeError: 'Boost.Python.StaticProperty' object attribute '__doc__' is read-only
After reading around I've found this could possibly be a serious bug, but I lack the technical know-how to implement (or indeed trust myself to even try and implement) any of the 'workarounds' posted on the interweb.
Does anyone know a decent fix for this? Or could someone walk me through (newbie style) how to implement any of the fixes.
I believe I have installed the latest Boost libraries from their svn trunk, although (very unhelpfully) I'm not 100% sure it was successful, and at the very least it definitely didn't work.
Have you tried using:
If thats not working than possibly reinstall Python on your machine as well as vPython.
