I have tried installing the Python PCL wrapper with sudo pip install git+ and it seemingly installs correctly, howevever when I try import it in Python I get the following error.

Python 2.7.8 (v2.7.8:ee879c0ffa11, Jun 29 2014, 21:07:35) 
[GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5666) (dot 3)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import pcl
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "pcl/", line 2, in <module>
    from ._pcl import *
ImportError: No module named _pcl

I'm running this on OSX 10.10 as well as Ubuntu 12.04, so if anyone has ideas how I can get this to work I would really appreciate it.

Since this isn't directly ROS-related, I would recommend opening a ticket on the python-pcl issue tracker.

Currently, the default version of pcl installed via homebrew is 1.8. You need to add the version 1.8 to the PCL_SUPPORTED list in the file of python-pcl.
