error installing libprs500

Hi may be someone can help. I'm trying to install libprs500 for linux fedora 8. I have followed the instruction from https://libprs500.kovidgoyal.net/download_fedora
but I keep getting errors.list as follows

[root@localhost /]# python --version
Python 2.5.1


[root@localhost /]# yum install python-setuptools python-imaging qt4 PyQt4 fonttools unrtf \
> python-mechanize imagemagick xdg-utils dbus-python
livna 100% |=========================| 2.1 kB 00:00
fedora 100% |=========================| 2.1 kB 00:00
updates 100% |=========================| 2.3 kB 00:00
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Package python-setuptools - 0.6c7-2.fc8.noarch is already installed.
Package python-imaging - 1.1.6-4.fc8.x86_64 is already installed.
Package PyQt4 - 4.2-8.fc8.x86_64 is already installed.
Package fonttools - 2.0-0.11.20060223cvs.fc7.x86_64 is already installed.
Package unrtf - 0.20.2-3.fc8.x86_64 is already installed.
Package python-mechanize - 0.1.6-0.2.b.fc8.noarch is already installed.
No package imagemagick available.
Package xdg-utils - 1.0.2-2.fc8.noarch is already installed.
Package dbus-python - 0.82.0-2.fc8.x86_64 is already installed.
Nothing to do

I think that imagemagick should be ImageMagick. when I run with this one it works and states

[root@localhost /]# yum install ImageMagick
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Package ImageMagick - 6.3.5.9-1.fc8.x86_64 is already installed.
Package ImageMagick - 6.3.5.9-1.fc8.i386 is already installed.
Nothing to do


when I enter the command from libprs500 for fedora I get this message

[root@localhost /]# easy_install -U TTFQuery libprs500
-bash: easy_install: command not found

I need some help any help

at this point I'm dead in the water.

I really would like to get this up and running it looks great

This is what was returned



[root@localhost ~]# locate easy_install
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/setuptools/command/easy_install.py
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/setuptools/command/easy_install.pyc
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/setuptools/command/easy_install.pyo
[root@localhost ~]#


It looks like it found something what is going on? I don't have a clue.
I'm going to uninstall python and then reinstall python see if that helps
Thanks for the help

No need replace easy_install with the following

Code:
python2.5 /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/setuptools/command/easy_install.py

Re run the easy_install command and look at its output carefully. It will tell you where it installed libprs500_postinstall

Look at message 10 where you did exactly the same thing. He needs the same thing he needed then, the path to the executable. You used to know how to do this.
