I exported a file from Jupyter to a .py format. The code works fine on Jupyter itself, but when I try to run it directly from the command line I get the following error
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python3.5/tkinter/__init__.py", line 36, in <module> import _tkinter ImportError: No module named '_tkinter'
During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "analysis.py", line 30, in <module> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt # NOTE: This was tested with matplotlib v. 2.1.0 File "/usr/local/lib/python3.5/dist-packages/matplotlib/pyplot.py", line 2374, in <module> switch_backend(rcParams["backend"]) File "/usr/local/lib/python3.5/dist-packages/matplotlib/pyplot.py", line 207, in switch_backend backend_mod = importlib.import_module(backend_name) File "/usr/lib/python3.5/importlib/__init__.py", line 126, in import_module return _bootstrap._gcd_import(name[level:], package, level) File "/usr/local/lib/python3.5/dist-packages/matplotlib/backends/backend_tkagg.py", line 1, in <module> from . import _backend_tk File "/usr/local/lib/python3.5/dist-packages/matplotlib/backends/_backend_tk.py", line 5, in <module> import tkinter as Tk File "/usr/lib/python3.5/tkinter/__init__.py", line 38, in <module> raise ImportError(str(msg) + ', please install the python3-tk package')
Both python-tk and python3-tk are installed. I'm using Python 3.5.2 in my Jupyter code. I've seen this thread and many others about this problem, but I still can't figure it out. What puzzles me the most is that the code does run on Jupyter, but I can't run it on a terminal when I export it.
Could someone please point me in the right direction as to solve this issue? Thank you in advance.
