Using in virtualenv

As of 14 feb 2014, you cannot install python-dbus with pip/easy_install.

You have two options:

  • install python-dbus in your virtualenv by downloading and building it
  • install python-dbus using your system package (like apt-get install python-dbus).

In the latter case if your virtualenv does not use system packages (that's the default option), your virtualenv sitll hasn't dbus module available. Just copy it from system packages:

# From virtualenv root folder
$ cp /usr/lib/pyshared/python2.7/ lib/python2.7/site-packages/
$ cp -r cp -r /usr/share/pyshared/dbus lib/python2.7/site-packages/dbus
$ python
