(I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 with Linux 2.6.32-21-generic #32-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 16 08:10:02 UTC 2010 i686)

For some reason I had updated some Python files (I'm not able to tell which ones, but it was during the installation of Hugin).

After that I noticed that my screenlets had disappeared after rebooting.

I'm trying to make screenlets work again since 3 days. I removed Hugin and everything related with python3. I have

$ python --version
Python 2.7.6

When I try to call screenlets I got

$ screenlets
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/screenlets-manager/screenlets-manager.py", line 34, in <module>
    import screenlets
ImportError: No module named screenlets

I'm Googling for hours to find a solution but anything is working. Helps are appreciated.

sound like when you upgrade, some packages had conflict and screenlets had been removed by some packages. – PersianGulf Feb 20 '14 at 18:49
you can watch /var/log/apt/term.log and /var/log/apt/history.log – PersianGulf Feb 20 '14 at 18:50
@MohsenPahlevanzadeh, there are many python entries. Since there are python2.6 entries do you think that my older python version was less than 2.6? – Sigur Feb 20 '14 at 18:53
no, but i don't know why you want to use import it. – PersianGulf Feb 20 '14 at 18:55
at first you should your write a module then add it to PYTHONPATH, however if your executable file import your module and your module is in your executable file, your don't need to add to pythonpath, any way you need to read tutorialspoint.com/python/python_modules.htm – PersianGulf Feb 20 '14 at 19:05
