Now I've installed the debian packages, but getting the following errors
reithi at reithi-lt:/usr/share/doc/python-qt4-doc/examples/script$ 
python2.4 ./helloscript.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./helloscript.py", line 6, in ?
    from PyQt4 import QtGui, QtScript
ImportError: No module named PyQt4

But PyQt4 site package is installed .
Is the any way to reconfigure the site packages ?
Do i have to tell python that it is there now ?
