I messed up my wxPython install (Eclipse Configuration Issue)

P: n/a
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,

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/

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/

2.5/lib/python2.5/plat-mac', '/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/
Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/plat-mac/lib-scriptpackages', '/Library/

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.
