I am new to PyXML. I am using Ubuntu 16.04
I downloaded PyXML-0.8.4.tar.gz and unzipped it.
Trying to run setup.py I have had the following problems:

When using sudo python setup.py build, I get:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
        File "setup.py", line 127, in <module>
        config_h_vars = parse_config_h(open(config_h))
    IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/usr/include/python2.7/pyconfig.h'

When using sudo python3 setup.py build, I get:
  File "setup.py", line 51
TabError: inconsistent use of tabs and spaces in indentation
I fixed that and got another one at line 57
I fixed that and got
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "setup.py", line 10, in <module>
    from setupext import Data_Files, install_Data_Files, wininst_request_delete
  File "/home/barry/Program_Files/PyXML-0.8.4/setupext/__init__.py", line 3, in <module>
    from install_data import Data_Files, install_Data_Files
ImportError: No module named 'install_data'
Error in sys.excepthook:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/apport_python_hook.py", line 63, in apport_excepthook
    from apport.fileutils import likely_packaged, get_recent_crashes
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/apport/__init__.py", line 5, in <module>
    from apport.report import Report
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/apport/report.py", line 15, in <module>
    import xml.dom, xml.dom.minidom
  File "/home/barry/Program_Files/PyXML-0.8.4/xml/dom/__init__.py", line 236, in <module>
    import MessageSource
ImportError: No module named 'MessageSource'

So, where do I go from here?
