Anyone got Spyder Python 3 to work in DSVM? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    Has anyone successfully run Spyder Python 3 in the DSVM? Clicking the icon Spyder under Anaconda 3 returns no action. Typing "spyder" in the Anaconda 3 prompt returns an error message saying that Python failed to start. Spyder with Python 2 can run without problem, but not Python 3. Please help!

  • Hi,

    There is a known issue with Spyder and Qt (see here: https://github.com/spyder-ide/spyder/issues/7447). You didn't mention which version of the DSVM you are using, but I was able to launch Spyder on the latest Ubuntu DSVM by downgrading qt and pyqt at a terminal:

    conda install qt=5.6* pyqt=5.6*

  • Hi Paul! Your suggestion totally worked! Thanks a lot! I am using a Windows version of DSVM. I ran Anaconda prompt:

    conda update spyder
    conda install qt=5.6* pyqt=5.6*

    The prompt then updated "qt" and "pyqt" but downgraded "sip" from 4.19.8 to 4.18.1.

    It is running like a charm now!
