#3670 new defect

Ubuntu 16.04 install wx python issue

Reported by: khayley Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: normal Milestone: 7.8.3
Component: Installation Version: 7.4.1
Keywords: Cc:
CPU: Unspecified Platform: Linux


When I run through the directions here: Using the unstable ppa

Then try to start grass in the terminal I get an error “wxGUI requires wxPython. No module named wx”

Python-wxgtk3.0 is installed on the machine so not sure what the issue may be.

If I try start grass with the -text command then I get an error “Unable to start Grass GIS”

I tried installing the grass-daily build to see if I had better success, but no luck

Hi I solved the issue I was having with the GRASS (and QGIS) install on Ubuntu. I had Anaconda python installed for data analysis, so there were issues with dependencies between the root python install and the Anaconda Python.

this Blog helped me figure it out and setting up the Anaconda python as an alias did the trick, Grass and QGIS (provided by ubuntugis) installed fine and are working. Spyder that I use for data analysis still finds the Anaconda python core by default so I have not lost anything in the process.
