Problem in installing CP 2.1.1 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS


#1

i’ve been struggling to downgrade CP to utilize runImageJ module. Since Conda installation doesn’t work (installation itself is successful, but the installed CP somehow doesn’t work properly), I have to start from scratch…

anyway, i git-cloned CP and checked out 2.1.1 release.
then sudo pip install --editable . --process-dependency-links

gives me several error messages that some packages are missing, so I cleared them all by pip installing the packages (pytz, setuptools, numpy, libtiff).

then what I got is this.

File “/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/setuptools/command/easy_install.py”, line 1028, in run_setup

raise DistutilsError("Setup script exited with %s" % (v.args[0],))

distutils.errors.DistutilsError: Setup script exited with error: This distribution is only supported on MacOSX

Can you please paste the full stacktrace?
