Can't install TocMacro plugin

Cc: Trac Release: 0.10


When trying to load the TocMacro plugin, Trac fails with the following error (from the log file):

ImportError: cannot import name parse_args

Below I've detailed my steps to install and run the plugin.

First I've downloaded and build the TocMacro egg the following way:

[~]# fetch -o ""
[~]# tar -xzf
[~]# cd tocmacro/0.11/
[~/tocmacro/0.11/]# python bdist_egg

Then I ran easy_install to make the plugin available from all Trac projects:

[~/tocmacro/0.11/]# cd dist
[~/tocmacro/0.11/dist]# easy_install TracTocMacro-
/usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/setuptools-0.6c5-py2.4.egg/setuptools/command/ UserWarning: Unbuilt egg for tocmacro [unknown version] (/usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/tocmacro.egg)

TracTocMacro is already the active version in easy-install.pth

Installed /usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/TracTocMacro-
Processing dependencies for TracTocMacro==

To be on the safe side I also restarted Apache.

When I now looked in my trac.log file (which is set to DEBUG) I saw that it complained about not having the Genshi Python toolkit. I downloaded and installed version 0.4.1 from their Subversion repository, but now I instead got the following error in my trac.log file:

2007-06-05 15:08:37,679 Trac[loader] DEBUG: Loading egg plugin tractoc.macro from /usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/TracTocMacro-

ImportError: cannot import name parse_args

As far as I can see, parse_args is a method on the Python optparse command line parser. And as far as I can see I've also got it installed:

[~]# locate optparse
