Turns out Ubuntu is missing pythons standard library component profile.py due to licensing issues related to debian.
I don’t really care about that.
What I care about is the solution.
Enable the multiverse repository in your ubuntu.
Copy and paste one of the lines (they are version specific) and replace the ending text with “multiverse”. It doesn’t really do any damage to keep other repo names on there.
## Added mutliverse for python-profiler deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ lucid multiverse
Update repo list and install python-profiler.
apt-get update apt-get install python-profiler
