I would like to use the Emlid pywificontrol package on github.

Here are the steps I used to install it.

sudo apt install dbus libdbus-glib-1-dev libdbus-1-dev python-dbus
sudo apt install python3 python3-pip python3-venv git
mkdir app
cd app
python3 -m venv venv
. venv/bin/activate
pip3 install netifaces
git clone
git clone
cd systemd-manager
cd ..
cd pywificontrol

When I try to import wificontrol I get:

(venv) pi@raspberrypi:~/app $ python3
Python 3.5.3 (default, Jan 19 2017, 14:11:04)
[GCC 6.3.0 20170124] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import wificontrol
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/home/pi/app/venv/lib/python3.5/site-packages/wificontrol-0.5.0-py3.5.egg/wificontrol/", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: cannot import name 'WiFiControl'

I would greatly appreciate any help to get this working.

Sorry for the late reply. This is a python 2 only package. This is likely the source of the issue.

Thanks @egor.fedorov.
