OK, the updated Ubuntu packages are available. I just tried them out on my ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS and yt-devel works great. With the stable version (yt) I get an import error:

In [1]: from yt.mods import *
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
ImportError                               Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-1-c31905f7fc2e> in <module>()
----> 1 from yt.mods import *

/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/yt/mods.py in <module>()

---> 99 from yt.frontends.athena.api import \
    100     AthenaStaticOutput, AthenaFieldInfo, add_athena_field
    101 

ImportError: No module named athena.api


This is weird, because when I install that exact same changeset (329d11eeff22) from source (with python ./setup.py develop --prefix=$HOME/local) it works just fine. I'll have to investigate. But if you're ok with using the development package (yt-devel), then you should be good to go.

Hi Roberto

I'm the maintainer of that ubuntu PPA, sorry you're having trouble with it. I think maybe all you need to do is to run 'sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kuhlen/ppa'. Note the trailing '/ppa'. Can you give that a try?

Otherwise, can you look under /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and see if there's a file named 'kuhlen-ppa-precise.list'? If there is, what is its content?

I've been a bit remiss in keeping these packages up-to-date, but spurned by your email I just re-packaged updates to the most recent versions (yt: 329d11eeff22, yt-devel: 09a0fd75818b). Should be available there some time tomorrow.

Cheers,
Mike

Hi Roberto,
could you run the following command in your $YT_HG directory:

find . -name "data_point_utilities.*"

and post the output? Also if you could try installing again but provide
us with build.log.gz from:

cd $YT_HG
bash ./clean.sh
python setup.py build | gzip --fast > build.log.gz

What version of ubuntu are you using?
Cheers,
Kacper
