Cannot use pmw widgets for python

P: 1
I just installed the pmw widgets package using the included setup.py into my python 2.7.13 site-packages folder. when I try to import pmw from a python console prompt, it causes the following import error:

File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named pmw

I have looked at the files that were installed and there is no pmw.py. Does anybody know what needs to be done to eliminate this problem?

First, it is always best to use the distro's native installer instead of downloading from some third party. Pmw is installed in /usr/lib64/python/site-packages on my Slackware box. It may also be in /usr/lib/... or /usr/local/lib(64)... Where ever it is it has to be somewhere in the Python Path. You can print the path with
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. import sys
  2. print sys.path 
edit: it is
import Pmw (note the capital "P")
