Does anyone know how to install the python bindings for cluttergst in ubuntu? When I tried to import cluttergst it threw up an import error

Anybody? I have the same problem, what distro was used in the tutorial in the mag?

Could an iso be produced of a working system so that we can follow the examples in the mag, I really want to use the webcam example.

I queried Nick on this; here's what he said:

The cluttergst module is usually included with the pyclutter - or at
least it was, up until the 0.92 (i think?) release. If you are using a
more recent Pyclutter, you will have to install it separately, or grab
the package from your repository.

The source is available here ... 0.0.tar.gz

you just need to unpack the archive and do the usual ./configure &&
make && sudo make install

also which may be of use to you, there is now a repository for
clutter/open hand packages:

To use, add the relevent line for your distribution to
/etc/apt/sources.list and apt-get update.
deb etch/
deb unstable/
deb edgy/
deb feisty/
deb gutsy/
deb hardy/

it's definitely better to get them from here than to build them yourself.
