no module named wx in fresh linux install

    This is frustrating.  After quite a while with an Ubuntu Intrepid install working fine, I reinstalled Ubuntu (hoping to cure some crashing issues…turns out that was probably a wireless network bug and the reinstall was unnecessary) and now I can't get Boa set up properly.  What I've done is this:

    1) Installed wxPython 2.8.10 from the wx repositories, as directed on the wxPython site.
    2) Downloaded Boa 0.6.1-4 from Sourceforge and tried extracting it to either the desktop, the user's home folder, or, using privileges, to site-packages (none worked).
    3) Associated in the Boa folder to open with Python.

    Problem is, Boa starts fine, but any app, even the simplest test app, will give the error:  'No module named wx'.

    I'm fairly sure I had Boa running with wxPython 2.8.10 previously, but I can't remember what the trick to this is.  Any ideas anyone?  (If I download Boa from the Ubuntu repositories, I can get farther, but it is frozen at wx2.6, which doesn't even have wx.combo yet, so it's really not an option).
