[lttng-dev] babeltrace-python bindings

The problem resides with the default search path of Python on Debian/Ubuntu.
When installing manually a Python library, it is installed in
/usr/local/lib/python3.x/site-packages, but Python on Debian/Ubuntu does
not look into this path but does look into dist-packages...

So you can either symlink /usr/local/lib/python3.x/dist-packages so
/usr/local/lib/python3.x/site-packages which is ugly.

Or use this kind of hack at the beginning of your Python program :
    from babeltrace import TraceCollection
except ImportError:
    # quick fix for debian-based distros
    sys.path.append("/usr/local/lib/python%d.%d/site-packages" %
                   (sys.version_info.major, sys.version_info.minor))
    from babeltrace import TraceCollection

You can have a look at this bug report about why it will probably never
be fixed...

I hope the workaround at least solves the problem you are having,
