Installing pyfa on ubuntu 18.04


(MorsMortis Shiyurida) #21

I did not know that I was logged in as root. I thought that I was logged in as my normal username. The command was not ran under root.


(Anderson Geten) #22

my bad then.
I already had issues with pip complaining I was running as root, so I did not check twice, and assumed your “$” was a “#”


(Anderson Geten) #23

@MorsMortis_Shiyurida
had this issue on a different install, removed the pip install wx and put it as a apt dep ; then added pip and packaging as pip dependency, solved it.


(Gisele Serebriakova) #24

This new sequence of commands worked on the first run through.


(Anderson Geten) #25

which one ?

You mean you just tried the last modifications I brought and it works ? I yes, then yeah \o/


(Gisele Serebriakova) #26

Yes(?)

I mean the command sequence in the OP worked for me and pyfa is running now.


(Anderson Geten) #27

then yeah \o\ :slight_smile:

(I update the script in the OP every time I find a bug fix so I was not sure if you got the correct one or were referencing a previous update)

Just need @MorsMortis_Shiyurida to confirm this works too.


(Anderson Geten) #28

:up: !

So I installed pyfa pretty much along the lines of the OP, and it runs but I encounter a few issues:

  • Implants & Boosters don’t seem to have any effect on fitting stats.
  • The Skill list in the Character Editor doesn’t show the skill names, just levels.

Anyone else experience these on Linux? I’m using Ubuntu 18.04 as well.


(Anderson Geten) #30

so installation works, nice.

Considering pyfa in itself, I think there is a thread on this forum for it.I means, I have issues with it too, but this is just for installation (all I can do is update the script)


(Blacque Jacque) #31

Yes, I saw that thread. I just thought there may be more Linux guys seeing it here, and I was looking for some confirmation. But I will probably report it over in the other thread as well.


(Caleb Maken) #32

Looks like I needed to add pip3 install --user bs4 as well.


(Anderson Geten) #33

I had it installed, tried pip3 --uninstall bs4 then launched pyfa and had no issue.


(Caleb Maken) #34

Interesting, wonder why it didn’t want to launch without it.


(Anderson Geten) #35

maybe you’re right though.


(Anderson Geten) #36

with last github update you need to upgrade pyYaml

pip install -U pyyaml --user


(Arount Four) #37

Kind of out-of-topic, but is there a reason why Pyfa don’t comes with a setup.py file (using setuptools)?

Would be easier to install.


(Anderson Geten) #38

ask the dev ? No idea, I just provide what I did to make it work.
