Yes - the install target should install the python part of PyKEP in the proper place so that python will recognize it. Run ccmake again with 'BUILD PYKEP' on and continue from there.

uff I made it, but I obtain then :

Unable to find the requested Boost libraries.

Boost version: 1.54.0

Boost include path: /usr/include

Could not find the following Boost libraries:

       boost_python3

Some (but not all) of the required Boost libraries were found. You may
need to install these additional Boost libraries. Alternatively, set
BOOST_LIBRARYDIR to the directory containing Boost libraries or BOOST_ROOT
to the location of Boost.
Call Stack (most recent call first):
CMakeLists.txt:64 (FIND_PACKAGE)

and I have installed the boost libraries..should I do it again?

I think that is one of the compiled libraries... it may be that only the header-only libraries were installed - how did you install the boost libraries?
Or you may have both python2 and python3- there are some extra instructions at the bottom of the installation page if that is the case

No I put Ubuntu on a Virtual Machine to avoid any possible conflict with my python because I am working with it as Trainee at ESAC..

Ah - how did you install boost?
I've found that installing it through apt-get is the best way to go

I followed another quite complicated way
I will try with apt-get then

I've installed Ubuntu on a few machines lately and have notes on what it took to get PyKEP/PyGMO working

excellent
I will give you updates then
maybe I am getting into too many things but they are challenging....
i am working with python for an image processing trainee project here at esac
I also used NAIF SPICE so it would be nice to merge the two...
I will try :)
in the meanwhile thank you for the help
