Sen2Three installation problem: IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sen2three-1.1.0-py2.7.egg/sen2three/cfg/L3_GIPP.xml'

Hello everybody,

tried to get sen2three running on Ubuntu 18.04 (bionic) and encountered after running installscript with “sudo python install” in aconda2 env (Python 2.7.16 |Anaconda custom (64-bit)) :

IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sen2three-1.1.0-py2.7.egg/sen2three/cfg/L3_GIPP.xml’

Why is the installscript looking at a path that does not exist? Any Ideas how to solve this?

Here are the last lines during installation procedure (Also: Is it relevant that it says …“sh: 1: conda: not found”?):

Finished processing dependencies for sen2three==1.1.0
Checking if old Glymur version is installed:
No old Glymur version found.
Now installing Glymur version 0.8.10:
sh: 1: conda: not found

Sen2Three 1.1.0 setup script:
This will finish the configuration of the environment settings.

OK to continue? [y/n]: y

Please input a path for the sen2three home directory:
default is: /home/username/sen2three
Is this OK? [y/n]: y

Thanx for helping :slight_smile:

sudo (root) used different python version :frowning:
started L3_Process with user where anaconda2/bin/python was used to install it.
