Much better. I ran the install and verified I could run "Import
reportlabs" so I assume on the way. I have to run but will further test

For Windows you need to use a pre-built installer (there is a link on
http://www.reportlab.org/downloads.html). For Linux download the
package, extract it into a temporary folder and change to that folder
where you'll see a file setup.py. Run 'python setup.py install' . Both
ways put reportlab in <path to python>/lib/site-packages/reportlab.
Python puts all extra packages in site-packages.

I'm new to Python and I'm having trouble with my ReportLabs install. The
instructions in Chapter 1 of the User's guide say to unzip the archive
straight into the Python directory. It further says, it creates a
subdirectory named reportlab. Your should now be able to go to a Python
command line interpreter and type import reportlab without getting an
error message.

I unzipped the archive into the Python folder, but the sub folder
created is called ReportLab_2_2, not reportlab. Also if I type "import
reportlab" I get a response of "ImportError: No module named reportlab".

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
