libprs500 installation on Ubuntu 7.10

I did all the steps, but there is no libprs500 on my computer:
1.
I connect the reader to usb
2.
marko@kuhinjski1:~$ python --version
Python 2.5.1
3.
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
python-setuptools is already the newest version.
python-imaging is already the newest version.
libqt4-core is already the newest version.
libqt4-gui is already the newest version.
python-qt4 is already the newest version.
fonttools is already the newest version.
python-mechanize is already the newest version.
imagemagick is already the newest version.
xdg-utils is already the newest version.
python-dbus is already the newest version.
python-lxml is already the newest version.
librsvg2-bin is already the newest version.
python-genshi is already the newest version.
help2man is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
4.
I add myself to the plugdev group (as root)
gpasswd -a username plugdev
5.
But when I test my installation by:

marko@kuhinjski1:~$ prs500 info
bash: prs500: command not found
marko@kuhinjski1:~$ libprs500
bash: libprs500: command not found

What is the problem?

You need to do these steps:

sudo easy_install -U TTFQuery libprs500
sudo libprs500_postinstall

Also.. you need to install converlit manually, which means compiling from source.
