Re: None Problem Installing python bindings (Jan Weidner)

Ran into the same problem, I edited all cmake_install.cmake files in the build directory and removed the section at the and that installed pyc and pyo files.

I also had to change the following the main CMakeList.txt file

+#find_package(PythonInterp REQUIRED)
+#find_package(PythonLibs REQUIRED)
+SET(PYTHON_INCLUDE_PATH /usr/include/python3.6m)
+SET(PYTHON_EXECUTABLE /usr/bin/python3.6m)
+SET(PYTHON_INCLUDE_DIR  /usr/include/python3.6m)
+find_package(Boost 1.63 COMPONENTS python-py3)

and change all boost_python strings into the -py3 version of it.

e.g. - ${GEANT4_LIBRARIES_WITH_VIS} boost_python + ${GEANT4_LIBRARIES_WITH_VIS} boost_python-py3

this made 'make' and 'make install' run smoothly, but now I'm stuck with the following error when I try to load the module:

In [1]: import Geant4

 Geant4 version Name: geant4-10-03-patch-01    (24-February-2017)

     90 # gLossTableManager
---> 91 gLossTableManager = G4LossTableManager.Instance()
     93 # gProductionCutsTable

NameError: name 'G4LossTableManager' is not defined

not sure how to fix this though :(
