Could you explain a bit more? By two directories do you mean two 0.7
branch directories in svn? There should only be one that I created
when I branched from trunk a few weeks ago. If you mean two different
local checkouts then why don't you just ditch one and do a fresh
The error you are getting usually results from two different Mapnik
versions being installed, say the apt-get package that uses a version
prefix for the installed plugin directory and a source installed
version. Doing a full scons -c (clean) and reinstall usually fixes the
problem (and of course uninstalling the packaged version) by ensuring
that the python bindings are installed correctly which know the proper
location to register the plugins ( see the __init__. py file and the
'paths.py' file for the paths - determined at install time) that are
used to register the plugins. Long sentence sorry- too much holiday
The installed shapefile plugin is a dynamic library called
'shape.input', so if the above discussion does not help resolve your
problem then finding all instances of that file on your system and
sending an email back to the list would be helpful.
