I have installed my python3 this way: sudo apt-get install make gcc wget https://www.python.org/ftp/python/3.4.0/Python-3.4.0.tgz tar xf Python-3.4.0.tgz -C /usr/local/src/ cd /usr/local/src/Python-3.4.0/ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/python3.4 make make install ln -s /usr/local/python3.4/bin/python3.4 /usr/bin/python3

when i upload a python file named down.py into the position: /usr/local/python3.4/lib/python3.4/down.py

why can’t import the module with command: import /usr/local/python3.4/lib/python3.4/down.py ?

You can import the module like this:

import down

Unfortunately, in Python 3.4, it’s not possible to load a module by its full path, see Consider leaving importlib.abc.Loader.load_module().
