Cant locate english.txt file while intalling Python Bitcoin module

0 votes

When I try and import pybitcointools using "from bitcoin import *" from (https://github.com/vbuterin/pybitcointools) I get the following error, indicating the "english.txt" file is missing from one of the installation directories. How do I fix this?

from bitcoin import * Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 1, in File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/site-packages/bitcoin-1.1.39-py2.7.egg/bitcoin/init.py", line 10, in from bitcoin.mnemonic import * File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/site-packages/bitcoin-1.1.39-py2.7.egg/bitcoin/mnemonic.py", line 7, in wordlist_english=list(open(os.path.join(os.path.dirname(os.path.realpath(file)),'english.txt'),'r')) IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/site-packages/bitcoin-1.1.39-py2.7.egg/bitcoin/english.txt'

How to solve this error?

This is related to a pybitcointools bug where the Pypi bitcoin .tar did not include the newly referenced english.txt file. This has since been fixed in v1.1.42

To fix your installation, you can reinstall pybitcointools from Pypi or run pip install --upgrade pybitcointools

The issue is described here: https://github.com/vbuterin/pybitcointools/issues/138
