How can I install python-psycopg (not python-psycopg2) on Ubuntu 9.10

"apt-get install python-psycopg" returns "Package python-psycopg has no installation candidate"

I also downloaded source code at psycopg-1.1.21.tar.gz but "make" command was no found in the archive.

python-psycopg is only available in Ubuntu until 9.04.

If the make command is not found you have to install the package make. Make sure you have installed anything else mentioned in the "Compile-time configuration options" section of the README file.

Did you try python setup.py install?

The archive has no setup.py, but it does have a Makefile. –  Cristian Ciupitu Jun 8 '10 at 0:27
