I'm quite new to Python, but I learned the basics with ArcPy in the Python software IDLE. It was quite easy to getting started: I start my script with "import arcpy" and i could start coding with arcpy functions.
But I'd like to work with QGis and PyQgis now. And I cannot make it work. When I start my script with "from qgis.core import *", i get an error message saying:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "<pyshell#1>", line 1, in <module> from qgis.core import * ImportError: No module named qgis.core
I guess that I have to make a liaison between Python and the Qgis module somehow, it is probably very basic but I can't find the answer.
How do I set-up my python so it can use the qgis functions?
