oh, just the usual debian way.
for starters, the output of
would have been nice, to confirm it is really the issue i suspect.
if so the next step is to download both packages from their respective
locations and install via
dpkg -i cython*deb
dpkg -i python-evas*deb
to be on the safe side, substitute the names with the full ones (don't
have them handy right now).
if for some reason installation fails, because a dependency is missing,
apt-cache is helpful:
apt-cache show libevas0
produces the following output:

Description: Enlightenment DR17 advanced canvas library
Evas is an advanced canvas library, providing six engines for rendering:
OpenGL (hardware accelerated), DirectFB, the framebuffer, Microsoft
Due to its simple API, evas can be developed with rapidly, and cleanly.
This package contains the core library and a set of image loaders and/or
for various formats: eet, gif, jpeg, png, svg, tiff and xpm
the line beginning with "Filename: " shows the path to the missing package
inside the repo, here
if your installation is a default one, the repo will be
so you have to point your browser/wget/whatever to
this is rather informational! if you are not familiar with either dpkg or
apt, you should refrain from wildly installing and better ask here
together with the output from dpkg to get help!
after that starting zhone should work -- if not, it's probably
another/additional error. starting zhone like said above in such cases
produces useful, nay, necessary output, so please append.
