Ubuntu 12.04 install NetSNMP Python Bindings

pythonsnmpubuntu 12.04

I want to install NetSNMP Python Bindings in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS system.

But I got some in install progress.

First, I got the net-snmp-5.7.1 source tar, and did the following things:

./configure –with-python-modules

apt-get install libperl-dev

But when I used the command ''make'' to compile the Net-SNMP source.

Facing the error like below:

Traceback (most recent call last): 
File "setup.py", line 2, in <module> 
from setuptools import setup, Extension, find_packages 
ImportError: No module named setuptools

I search some solutions, and someone use 'python-updater –i' to solve this problem.

But in my system, I don't have this command.

And the python version I use is 2.7.3

Can someone help me solve this problem?

Thanks.

sudo apt-get install python-setuptools. (And while you're at it, why not install python-pynetsnmp?)
