Raspian Importerror

May 22 '15 at 07:50

Hi, I'm using chilkat for years on MAC OS X, but now I have to use it on a Rasperry Pi to. I followed the installation instructions, but Python always returns:

Traceback (most recent call last)
  File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in <module>
    import chilkat
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.2/dist-packages/", line 26, in <module>
    _chilkat = swig_import_helper()
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.2/dist-packages/", line 22, in swig_import_helper
    _mod = imp.load_module('_chilkat', fp, pathname, description)
ImportError: /usr/local/lib/python3.2/dist-packages/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory`

I have now idea, what the mistake could be... Thanks for your answers!


and you did check the file



Of course I checked! In the Installationguide it said I have to copy the two files both into the folder, but it doesn't work!


Does the account that your program/script run under have read permission on the file and folder(s) in the /usr/local/lib/python3.2/dist-packages/ path?


@jpbro: Yes, its got the read permission on the file and folders.


Please help me!
