Hi! I have been a XBMC user for sometime now and a beginning python programmer. I wanted to start developing an addon so I went to the XBMC wiki and downloaded the plugin tutorial (http://voinage-xbmc-plugins.googlecode.c...rial.rar). I ran a script from the file and got an error saying no module named xbmcplugin. Any help?

As Martijn said, you need to run the add-on from within XBMC. XBMC has a separate python instance it uses that contains all the necessary XBMC related libraries. When you run the add-on from the command line, you're using the python instance of the computer, and that doesn't have all the libraries you need.
