I downloaded cx_oracle for installation to Ubuntu 11.04 64bit this morning,
and the alien and dpkg operations worked fine,
but on testing the import, the error msg shows that the oracle client lib is
missing. I found a thread that mentioned installing the
oracle instant client on 11.04 to resolve this, and alien and dpkg worked
fine.

Yet, when I go into python (runing 2.7) and import cx_Oracle, I get
"ImportError: libclntsh.so.11.1: cannot open shared object file: No such
file or directory.

Looking for this with find / -name libclntsh.so.11.1 -print produces
/usr/lib/oracle/11.2/client64/lib/libclntsh.so.11.1

I'm confused as to why Python doesn't see it...
