python-sparse: ImportError: No module named sparse (from pysparse.sparse import spmatrix)

Asked by on 2012-04-10

I am having trouble installing pysparse on ubuntu. I installed the package python-sparse, but when running the example code found in the documentation

    from pysparse.sparse import spmatrix
    from import superlu
    import numpy
    n = 100
    A = poisson2d_sym_blk(n)
    b = numpy.ones(n*n)
    x = numpy.empty(n*n)
    LU = superlu.factorize(A.to_csr(), diag_pivot_thresh=0.0)
    LU.solve(b, x)

I get the error message

    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "", line 1, in <module>
        from pysparse.sparse import spmatrix
    ImportError: No module named sparse

I have also tried running

    $ pip install pysparse
    Requirement already satisfied: pysparse in /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages
    Installing collected packages: pysparse
    Successfully installed pysparse

Why does the example code from the documentation not work?

I am having a hard time understanding you since your English is not very good. Is there an answer to my question somewhere in your reply?
