PyWebkitGTK: 'module' object has no attribute 'WebView'

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

If you're working with PyWebkitGTK, and you get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./webkit.py", line 7, in 
    import webkit
  File "/home/todsah/webkit.py", line 18, in 
    class BrowserPage(webkit.WebView):
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'WebView'

… make sure you haven't named your script 'webkit.py', and there is no other script with the same name in that directory. Also delete any webkit.pyc pic files. Do'h!
