im running mac os X with native python 2.6.1 install . Later today installed GDAL complete pkg, and added the program to the shell path on the terminal with the folowing cmd :

~: echo "export PATH=/Library/Frameworks/PROJ.framework/Programs:$PATH" >>.bash_profile

Resulting on my bash_file this following line : ~: echo "export PATH=/Library/Frameworks/PROJ.framework/Programs:$PATH" >>.bash_profile

Now every time i try on terminal to import the pyproj i receive the error described on title.

ps. go easy im new to Mac's/UNIXs and to osgeo in general.

Many thanks Jorge

you need to install the Python pyproj module which is not in the Proj framework of Kingchaos

Thanks for the guidance i tried the easy_install pyproj but it fails. Do you have an opinion on how should i install it correctly ? – Jorge Vidinha Apr 5 '11 at 12:34
An easy_install will have to build a pyproj source distribution for OS X – you'll need a compiler, etc (from XCode) and then you'll need to learn how to make the Kingchaos libs and headers available. – sgillies Apr 6 '11 at 18:54
