help for installing onboard


I want to install onboard (=fantastic virtual keyboard) on F17 (64 bit), works perfectly under ubuntu. But I'm stuck with the installer.

I downloaded the zip from launchpad and tried to install it, currently it blocks on the following error:
$ sudo ./setup.py install
To build Onboard you need https://launchpad.net/python-distutils-extra

So I installed the current python-distutils-extra from yum (standard f17 repo); then from launchpad; but no use, onboard install still fails with the same error.

Anybody an idea how I can get around this?

thank you for reading; many thanks for answering

This might come in handy for getting the issue, I assume this is something python related, but I'm an absolute noob on in this level.
