[FAQ] Install fails for python library
12.29.2014 01:56 PM
Q: I followed the instructions for cloning the git repository and then changed into the m2x-python directory. When I type "python setup.py install" I get the following errors:
File "setup.py", Line 1, int from setuptools import setup ImportError: No module named setuptools
Listing the contents of the directory confirms this error.
A: You don't say what environment you are using (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc) but the issue is still the same: python-setuptools is not installed on your configuration, and is not an issue with the m2x-python library. You can find directions for installing setup tools here: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuptools#installation-instructions
