I'm trying to write a python script to control my Sky-Watcher Allview mount on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. I initially ran into some PyIndi install problems that I solved after following the discussion here , but I've run into a new problem. When I try to run my script it immediately fails on the import call with the following response:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "skywatcherComm.py", line 4, in <module>
    import PyIndi
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pyindi_client-0.2.0-py2.7-linux-x86_64.egg/PyIndi.py", line 28, in <module>
    _PyIndi = swig_import_helper()
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pyindi_client-0.2.0-py2.7-linux-x86_64.egg/PyIndi.py", line 24, in swig_import_helper
    _mod = imp.load_module('_PyIndi', fp, pathname, description)
ImportError: /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pyindi_client-0.2.0-py2.7-linux-x86_64.egg/_PyIndi.so: undefined symbol: ln_get_apparent_sidereal_time

Did I miss something in the install? Should I have rebooted after I finished? I'm still kind of new on Linux, and completely new to astronomy, so any insight is appreciated.

I ended up solving my own problem. I had installed INDI using the instructions for Ubuntu in the download page on this site, but I after visiting the project on GitHub noticed that I should also run the following:

sudo apt-get install libnova-dev libcfitsio-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev zlib1g-dev libgsl-dev build-essential cmake git libjpeg-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev

That solved my problem.
