I am using Matlab2014b and try to import python packages. I am on a linux computer and executing the command py.numpy.* works and py.importlib.import_module('numpy') gives me the correct output. However, numpy lives in my /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/ directory, which according to the output of py.sys.path is in the search directory, so the import should work.
However, I have another package that I would like to include, which is in /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/. Again, according to py.sys.path, this directory is included in the search path, however, importing the package fails ("Import argument 'py.fabio' cannot be found or cannot be imported."). I hope someone has an advice how to solve this problem.
PS: pyversion returns my current installation (2.7) and shows isloaded: 1
PPPS: When I try to get feedback from py.importlib.import_module, Matlab crashes.
