This is internal QGIS thing. And of course you can import this package.

$ python
Python 2.7.9 (default, Mar  1 2015, 12:57:24) 
[GCC 4.9.2] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

>>> from qgis.core import QGis

>>> QGis.QGIS_DEV_VERSION
'f04de1b'
>>> 

Seems you system is messed up

#4 Updated by dr - over 4 years ago

There is no PyQt directory in /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/qgis. I've tried to reinstall python-qgis package but no success.

#5 Updated by dr - over 4 years ago

It seems now for using qgis package I have to specify PYTHONPATH:

export PYTHONPATH="${PYTHONPATH}:/usr/share/qgis/python" 
$ python
Python 2.7.6 (default, Jun 22 2015, 17:58:13) 
[GCC 4.8.2] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import qgis
>>>

But before it worked without it. Is it expected behavior?
