I have been trying without success to install the LeCos plug in on QGIS2.0 on my Mac. I originally tried it on QGIS1.8 but was unable to install the dependent packages (PIL,scipy and numpy). I updated to QGIS 2.20 and successfully installed the packages, however I am still unable to install LeCos. THis is the message that comes up:

The packages are definitely installed because I checked by doing this in python: enter image description here

Has anyone else installed it successfully?

You probably the one who commented on my blog. Your error is most likely related to wrong packaging and you need to contact the distributor. is normally included in the scipy python base (, but apparently it was not successfully packaged into the kyngchaos sources – Curlew Dec 11 '13 at 23:58
Yes that's me! Ok great thanks a lot for that info will give it a go and report back. – Pop Dec 12 '13 at 2:23
I thought downloading the packages from other sources might fix the problem. Unfortunately it hasn't. – Pop Dec 12 '13 at 3:18
Alternatively you could try to open a QGIS python shell and install scipy via pip. (…). Nathan also posted a guide for Win on his blog -> Don't know if this will work on MAC though... – Curlew Dec 12 '13 at 15:17
