I have followed the installation of Nodebox OpenGL. I have placed my code: in nodebox-gl-1.7. Inside that folder there are examples (folder), icon.png, nodebox (folder) and I have placed nodbox-gl-1.7 folder in site-packages folder. This is the error after I run >>>> python

    It looks like Pyglet is missing. This is the library we use for working with OpenGL.

    Could you try installing it from the command line. Normally this should work:

    sudo pip install pyglet

    If you're missing pip as well, you can install that first, then install Pyglet:

    sudo easy_install pip
    sudo pip install pyglet
