I am new to Anaconda and I am getting an error in my terminal which I used to launch the Anaconda GUI (and subsequently Spyder).
A few specs:
- I am using a Dell computer with Ubuntu 18.04
- I have a native Python 3.6 in my usr/bin and installing Microsoft VS (during the Anaconda installation) resulted in Python 2.7 also being installed there
- I have Anaconda with Python 3.7 and have created a few environments:
- conda version 4.4.11
- Anaconda-navigator version 1.9.4
- Python version 3.7.0
$ conda info --envs
# conda environments: # # base * /home/user-name/anaconda3 # myenv-3.6 /home/user-name/anaconda3/envs/myenv-3.6 # myenv-3.7 /home/user-name/anaconda3/envs/myenv-3.7
All seems to be working well apart from the fact that i noticed some weird errors when I launch the navigator from the command line:
At first I didn't realise anything because the GUI would open I would start using Spyder. But I happened to look at my terminal window (left open after typing "$anaconda-navigator" and it has weird errors, which seem to be piling up over time. and seem to be the same error (although the "pipe" number changes).
QProcessPrivate::createPipe: Cannot create pipe 0x56312f2eea00: Too many open files Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/user-name/anaconda3/lib/python3.7/site-packages/anaconda_navigator/api/anaconda_api.py", line 495, in _conda_info_processed processed_info = self._process_conda_info(info) File "/home/user-name/anaconda3/lib/python3.7/site-packages/anaconda_navigator/api/anaconda_api.py", line 606, in _process_conda_info processed_info = info.copy() AttributeError: 'bytes' object has no attribute 'copy'
I don't understand what this means, did I get some kind of error in my anaconda-navigator? I updated conda to the latest version (4.5.12) and checked if there is a latest version of anaconda-navigator but there isn't so I remain on 1.9.4
Importantly: the error doesn't immediately appear after I launch the anaconda-navigator. Sometimes I will be working for over 30min on it and only then will the error appear.
Any help would be deeply appreciated, I am desperate to get Anaconda working well.
