This should be a very simple one, sorry!

I installed wxWindows on my OS X box but I am unable to get my python
install to recognize the module. Unfortunately I don't know a whole
lot about where modules install to or how to configure python to see
them. IE: 'import wx' does not work - it says unknown module wx.

Do I need to tweak a path variable or something?

I have MacPython installed and the binary of wxWindows (wxPython) from
wxpython.com

Thanks guys,
Blaine

    What version of wxPython did you install? I don't think any of them are
    configured to work with Apple's system-installed Python--you would need
    to install Python 2.5 from the Python.org website.

    Check you version of Python. Update if needed and then go here for
    your specific version: http://pythonmac.org/packages/

    The wxPython website also talks about how to install wxPython on Macs.
    See http://www.wxpython.org/download.php
