pyROOT when using Ubuntu and the deb from http://mirror.phy


After not being successful building ROOT from source, I installed it to my Ubuntu 7.10 system using the repository at

It seems to work fine, but I was wondering if anyone knew how to get pyROOT working with this?

I opened up python and tried an import ROOT and it gave the standard module not found error.

Any suggestions or ideas?

Thanks in advance!

I don’t have an answers about your problem with the compiled package, but I’m using, since Ubuntu version 6.06, ROOT compiled from sources without any problem.

In the “discussion” forum there many threads about common issues find compling ROOT on an ubuntu box.
