Comment #9 on issue 153 by bryanadams: 2.3 Python code not importing

I had the same problem from a fresh Ubuntu / Python / protobuffers install, but didn't want to reinstall the python libraries. So here's the problem in a nutshell:

Ubuntu 10.04 / Python2.6 comes with a protobuf-2.2 library


However, if you install from source, the protobuf-2.3 library goes to


So you can solve that however suits your personal style: install 2.3 over the 2.2, blow away / rename the 2.2, whatever. I renamed the 2.2 install, and that fixed it.
