I want to install this application pymetar link is here

http://www.schwarzvogel.de/software-pymetar.shtml

how would i go about doing that ? its a command line only utility so i dont think it should be a problem to run on the n900 ?

basically it should be enough to unpack the archive somewhere, go to the created folder

cd pymetar-0.16/bin

and run the script

./pymetar

for more info you should bother the authors ton include a readme.

three possible solutions spring to mind:
- you did miss the leading ./
- the script is not set executable -- what does
ls -al pymetar-0.16/bin/pymetar
return?
- you don't have /usr/bin/python

what _exactly_ did you do and what _exactly_ happend/was returned?

i did not miss the leading ./

the return from the command you told me

-rw-r--r-- 1 user root 1897 Jan 17 05:41 pymetar-0.16/bin/pymetar

i checked /usr/bin and /usr/bin/python is there

i did ./pymetar and it said /bin/sh: ./pymetar permission denied and that is all

tried it as root as well

1. You don't have execution permissions for the file, try
chmod 755 pymetar
2. Make sure you're not trying to run it from /home/user/MyDocs/... as this is FAT and chmod will not work, you'll have to move it to somewhere in /home/user before doing 1.

yeah, i guess that setup.py needs to be run beforehand -- don't know, though, if that works flawlessly with maemo.
after all, the script is an example on how to use the actual lib.

if you only are looking for weather info, there are a few apps avaliable already.
