Does the user have the right to run sudo (and why do you have to run the program as root)? Also, try using the /complete/path/to/the/file/, or ./ if the shell is in the correct directory (note the dot+slash). And use a shebang line and make the file executable, instead of calling python -- see "Miscellaneous" at
