python-mapnik: Misssing shared library Error


After installation of Mapnik was getting error running import Mapnik:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 16, in <module>
    import mapnik
  File "/usr/local/python2.6/dist-package/mapnik/", line 69, in
    from _mapnik import *
ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such
file or directory

This may cause the problem, an old mapnik installation from source which was not removed before using the DEBIAN-version.) so after Completely removing the old installation from /usr/local solved the Problem. All applications using mapnik are working again.

All applications using Mapnik are working again.
