Starting OpenAstro...

Asked by NoGo321 on 2008-05-21

I see a tab on the bottom of my screen that says starting openastro than goes away and never see a gui for any program or anything.
I tried /usr/bin/openastro.py and got:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/openastro.py", line 43, in <module>
    from openastromod import zonetab, geoname, importfile, swiss as ephemeris
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/openastromod/swiss.py", line 30, in <module>
    import swisseph as swe
ImportError: No module named swisseph
Error in sys.excepthook:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/apport_python_hook.py", line 78, in apport_excepthook
    report_file = open(pr_filename, 'wt')
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/var/crash/_usr_bin_openastro.py.1000.crash'

Original exception was:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/openastro.py", line 43, in <module>
    from openastromod import zonetab, geoname, importfile, swiss as ephemeris
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/openastromod/swiss.py", line 30, in <module>
    import swisseph as swe
ImportError: No module named swisseph

And than this when I tried the debug:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/openastro.py", line 43, in <module>
    from openastromod import zonetab, geoname, importfile, swiss as ephemeris

    import swisseph as swe

I am using Ubuntu 8.04

Hello,

It seems you don't have the swiss ephemeris python extension installed:

please go to the download page on www.openastro.org and install the dependecies:

Swiss Ephemeris 1.72 Python Extension
Swiss Ephemeris Files for 1800AD - 2400AD

Can you help with this problem?
