Hi Folks,

I've just entered the world of PyQt programming on Mac OS X (Mountain 
Lion). Mostly an enjoyable experience, but finding my way around the 
file system is giving me headaches!!!

I've installed Python 3.3 and PyQt4 using the following instructions 
found at http://www.pythonschool.net/cxfreeze_mac/. Handy, since I also 
use cx_Freeze to package my application.

I need to include the image format plugins with my distribution. On my 
Windows machine they would be located under 
C:\\Python32\\Lib\\site-packages\\PyQt4\\plugins\\imageformats, but I am 
having difficulty locating them on Mac. Any suggestions?


Best regards,
Timothy Grove
