You need to install third party Gengo package, prior to install this module. Odoo doesn't includes gengo package into it's default list of packages. 

Below are the steps to install this package. Here I am guessing you are using Ubuntu OS.

Installing this library using pip is very simple:

pip install gengo (if pip command will not work then first install pip package by command sudo apt-get install python-pip)

Otherwise, you can install from source by getting the repo:

git clone git://

And then installing the library:

python install

This will also install the `requests` package. If you're running on a version of Python prior to 2.6, you'll need to install simplejson as well:

pip install simplejson

Once after installation of these necessary packages, restart your Odoo server. I am sure you won't face same problem again.
