Correct. sys.path does not include /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/

However, this should not be necessary as
'/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/' should already be included in
sys.path. Why it isn't is a Python question, but
/usr/lib/python2.7/site.py which is normally executed during python
startup should put it there. What do you see if you invoke an
interactive python session and import sys and print sys.path as in

$ python
Python 2.7.5+ (default, Feb 27 2014, 19:37:08)
[GCC 4.8.1] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import sys
>>> print sys.path
['', '/usr/lib/python2.7', '/usr/lib/python2.7/plat-x86_64-linux-gnu',
'/usr/lib/python2.7/lib-tk', '/usr/lib/python2.7/lib-old',
