ImportError when Remote Debugging since 2.7

Just updated to 2.7 and have an issue with the remote debugger which has always worked for over a year. I get the following trackback:

Traceback (most recent call last):

from pydev import pydevd
ImportError: No module named pydev

I have added the debug egg to the path and imported pydev as I have for previous versions like so:

import sys
from pydev import pydevd
pydevd.settrace('localhost', port=14999, stdoutToServer=True, stderrToServer=True)

The settings match in PyCharm, and I even tried recreating them and using it again and I still get the ImportError.

Any help would be really appreciated.

I am running Mac OS X Mountain Lion and version 2.7 of PyCharm.
Worked perfectly. Thanks for your reply!

Same problem here, on Windows :(

Please try: import pydevd
instead of
from pydev import pydevd

I have, even after trying easy_install pycharm-debug.egg, which ran successfully

python -c "import pydevd"

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named pydevd

Is it the same python? And which one is it? (I mean the version)

'pycharm-debug.egg' folder in site-packages turned out to actually be empty, removed and easy_install ran again and it's all working now, thank you.
