I want to create a simple recorder and I tried QtMultimedia module.
Then I met 'ImportError: No module named QtMultimedia'.
I found the error reason via google, that is:
I also found PyQtMobility 1.0 and tried to install it on my Ubuntu 10.10.
I did it as follow:

$ tar zxvf PyQtMobility-gpl-1.0.tar.gz
$ cd PyQtMobility-gpl-1.0/
#official instruction
$ gvim README
$ sudo aptitude install qtmobility-dbg
$ sudo updatedb
$ sudo locate qmobilityglobal.h
$ python configure.py --help
  -n DIR                the directory containing the QtMobility header file
                        directories [default: /usr/include/qt4]
$ python configure.py -n /usr/include

sip: /home/chinakr/src/PyQtMobility-gpl-1.0/sip/QtContacts/qcontactaddress.sip:37:

found nothing.
What should I do now? Any suggestion?
