I have not used these packages and I do not know how they install. But from
my experience in Windows - if you install packages, you should be able to
use modules by importing packages. so if you have these directories in
sys.path, did you try:
for example and see what happens? Provided you have __init__.py in that
subdirectory it should find it. Then you can use modules from this package.
