I installed Nodebox in my server Apache CentOs6
I installed it in usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/
I didt get any error duriing the installation

Here is what I get when I type :
from import *

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 1, in ImportError: No module named

What should I do ?
Thanks a lot for your help

    - NodeBox 3 is a Java application that you can install, but it won't work as-is from the command line.
    - NodeBox 1 is a Mac-only application
    - You might have some success with NodeBox / OpenGL, but it doesn't do offline rendering.

    Can I ask, what is your use case? Do you want to generate images on the server?

    Hi, thanks for your anser.

    Yes I would like to use NodeBox to generate images on the server.
    So assuming I have Linux, what should I do please ?

    Well, there is no version of NodeBox that can just generate images as-is on the server. NodeBox 1 only works on Mac, NodeBox 3 is a graphical application and NodeBox/OpenGL does work on Linux, but only on the desktop.

    The issue is that NodeBox doesn't have a rendering backend supported on Linux (such as Cairo or Skia). Adding support for this would solve your issue, but it's something that's not planned for now.
