    Converting a python tool from OS X to Linux


    I have a python tool that creates a wall around a Minecraft world. The problem is that it was originally intended for OS X, and despite numerous attempts on my part, I cannot get this tool to run on Linux. I have contacted the tool's original author but the project is no longer supported:

    Code:
    This is to get around the "no URL" rule, and to provide reference to the tool:
    https://github.com/sixohsix/minecraft-buildawall/issues/1
    I had assumed that since this tool uses Python 2.7, it should run on Linux with minimal changes, but it seems I was wrong, probably because I don't understand enough about how Python works at the OS level.

    So, long story short, how can I "convert" this from Mac to Linux?

    You might advance your cause if you show the error.
    By chance are you missing a file named

    pymclevel.something

    ? And if you have this pymclevel file, is it on the python path? AND ALL ITS DEPENDENCIES.
    [code]Code tags[/code] are essential for python code and Makefiles!

    Actually, I figured it out on my own. The tool actually runs now with no errors, but it doesn't generate the wall. It says it does, but it doesn't. However, since starting my new job, I haven't had time to mess around any further.
