Problem with Python 2.4 and bittornado?

I've installed the python 2.4 package via pacman, and bittornado 0.3.9b, which I customised for CLI use only by removing wxpython and wxgtk from depends. However, I can't run the BT commands in the usual way e.g. by typing

btdownloadcurses <options> <URL>

The response is "command not found".

If I do the following:

python /usr/bin/btdownloadcurses.py <options> <URL>

the torrent starts successfully.

I haven't had this problem on any other machine.

How do I make the bittornado scripts executable?

just do:

btdownloadcurses.py some_random.torrent

you need the ".py"

Just as a note, you're talking about the bittorrent client.  Bittornado is different.

naw, the files are the same... the bittornado guy decided to kludge the install - that's why my bittornado package conflicts=('bittorrent')

OK - I'm suffering from Debianism (again....).

The Deb packages create symlinks from e.g.

btdownloadcurses -> btdownloadcurses.py

and I was too lazy to notice that!

Thanks all.
