Cannot find module cv2 when using OpenCV

I have installed OpenCV on the Occidentalis operating system (a variant of Raspbian) on a Raspberry Pi, using jayrambhia’s script found here. It installed version 2.4.5.

When I try import cv2 in a Python program, I get the following message:

[email protected]~$ python
Traceback (most recent call last)
File "", line 1, in <module>
    import cv2
ImportError: No module named cv2

The file is stored in /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/...

There are also folders in /usr/local/lib called python3.2 and python2.6, which could be a problem but I’m not sure.

Is this a path error perhaps? Any help is appreciated, I am new to Linux.
