I'm not an OSX user, but maybe I can clarify a bit. The module zim is
looking for is "zim.py" and "zim/config.py". These are not in the
standard python distribution, but should be installed when you install
zim. You can check if they are in "site-packages" - if not they are
installed in an unexpected location.

Btw. you can also run zim without installing, if you start it from the
(extracted) source directory it will detect these files relative to
the script.

Hope this helps,
