The 'python-opengl' and 'python-gtkglext1' packages aren't installed. You can install them by using Synaptic, or just click this link and it should ask you:

apt://python-opengl,python-gtkglext1

The package is 'python-gl' NOT 'python-opengl', sorry. And it appears Launchpad won't highlight that link for you, so if you go to this page and click the link it will ask to install the software through the Ubuntu repository:

Thanks Kristopher Ives, that solved my question.

Okay the package actually is 'python-opengl' and something is wrong with me today (or always). Clicking this should install it:

Thanks a lot it worked. I copied and pasted "apt://python-opengl,python-gtkglext1" into the address bar in firefox and followed the prompts to install. Thanks I wasn't very optimistic as I have been trying to solve this for a while now. LOL
Well done and thanks again !!!
