Okay make sure you have all dependencies and recommend files installed.

* Depends:

python
python-xdg
python-cairo
python-gtk2 - that includes pygtk and python-pango
python-gnomeapplet *** necessary only when running on gnome-panel *** - or in some distros "python gnome desktop"
python-xml - may be needed in older distributions (eg: ubuntu before karmic)

* Recomends:

gmenu - will use this instead of xdg if it is installed
python-numpy - for gtk theme colors and some tab effects
python-gconf - or in some distros "python gnome"
python-keybinder or python-xlib - for keybinding
gettext - for translations

All dependencies that apply to Ubuntu 10.04 listed in the reply are in place . I will attempt reinstalling the GnoMenu.

Also make sure you add recommends as well. If you still have the problem try changing the command used in GnoMenu preferences.

After checking to see that a dependencies were in place I removed an installed the GnoMenu and was still unable to open python. Later I discovered that when my AWN dock was deactivated that I was able to open python from the GnoMenu. I am using the AWN testing ppa
so I suspect a conflict.

I am able to use python from the GnoMenu by typing python into the Gnome Terminal . Consider the question answered and thank you for responding . The AWN ppa is not an officially supported package and that makes this my problem.
