Hey there. I'm new to Linux, and must install Scipy (Scientific Python) on my Suse 9.2 .
I have the Numeric model installed already. I've used the RPM and I can import the scipy module, but when I try to run xplt then I get this horrible error lines, can somebody please give any clue how to solve that? I've looked in these directories and these mentioned files do exist. Thanks a lot.

>>> import scipy
>>> from scipy import xplt
>>> xplt.window

ImportError: libg2c.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

1) find the directory that contains file libg2c.so.0
2) Run this little program:

import sys
print sys.path

It should show you PYTHONPATH, see if it contains the directory for file libg2c.so.0
Normally your installation should take care of it!
3) if not, then you have to tell Python by adding this to the beginning of your code:

import sys
dir_of_libg2c = "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/scipy/whatever_it_is"
sys.path.append(dir_of_libg2c)

I don't have a Linux machine, I am guessing here!
