Thanks, now it's working. By mistake i've tried do run shell as root using sudo ./odoo.py shell -d v8.

Don't forget to update modules and install shell after copying "shell" folder to "addons"

Are you getting some error?if yes please show the error log. Also ensure you did the following steps.

1. Install the shell addon

2. On terminal, goto the location containing odoo.py (For eg: /opt/odoo-8.0/), which also contains the addons folder.

3. Run ./odoo.py shell -d dbname

yes, I install the shell module in the odoo v8 and in my odoo source code location only i am trying run "./odoo.py shell -d v8" and v8 is the db name in which shell module is also installed
