Thanks Sandro,

I have implemented this, but it is still causing issues.

We have pyversions and are using python-support, but still are not getting what we need.

If we build the hplip package with python2.5 installed, then it places the modules under /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages:

If we build the hplip package with python2.6 installed then it places the modules under /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages:

The python2.5 built packages (/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages) do not work if python2.6 is installed, as it cannot locate the correct modules.. :-(

So how do I force depends to be set to ensure the correct version of python is installed, or how to I ensure that either version of python will look in either location for the modules??
