Couldn't import Python module 'psycopg2' for communication with PostgreSQL database. Without it you won't be able to run PostGIS manager.

when i try and use the postGIS admin tool

Anyone know how i can fix this..

  • Did you install GRASS? If not and you don't need it, ignore the warning. – underdark Nov 20 '12 at 20:29

For PostgreSQL to work (2nd error message) you need to install psycopg2 module from http://www.kyngchaos.com/software/python
