    the problem is it simply doesn't start with leaving the following message

    You do not have all of the required Python modules to run gnochm.
    Check the gnochm README file for tips on how to fix this.
    What follows is the error description highlighting the problematic module.

    No module named gconf

      This error indicates that you do not have the gnome python module for gconf. As you have not mentioned which  distro/version you are using I cannot tell you which package to get, but usually they are called:

      gnome-python-gconf

      or something similar.

      Hope this helps.

      Thanx a lot friend..actually I was thinking along the same lines.I gave the locate command to look for gnome-python2 and i thought that this module must have been preinstalled while installing Python but it was not there so after ur advice I download it and installed it and Viola it worked ..Thanx thanx a lot ...
