The problem is that only  'python-mapnik 0.5.1-3ubuntu2.0' is  
available via apt on the click2try machine.

This is different from the livedemo iso which installs  
'0.5.1-3ubuntu2.1' (which includes python2.6 support and is needed for  
the demos to work)

I tracked this down to the fact that the click2try machine does not  
have this line:

deb <url> jaunty-updates main restricted universe # key here is  

in '/etc/apt/sources.list'

Can this be added?

Then an apt-get update/upgrade would be needed...
