Hi All,

Can you open up a terminal window from Applications menu, Accessories and try this

sudo apt-get install python-qt4

I have Ubuntu 8.04 LTS and python-qt4 is installed.

I'd be surprised if you need to perform this step but it might be worth adding the Universe and multiverse repositories by clicking the relevant checkboxes in System menu, Administration, Software Sources.

I think you need simply an "update" of available packages so:

Please open a Terminal from the menu Applications->Accessories->Terminal and type or better copy and paste:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python-qt4

give your user password when requested, you don't see nothing when you type it, then press enter.
