(Please note I'm still relatively new to Linux).
When I run QGIS after install I get a message 'Could't load SIP module'. I've looked for help and am conflicting advice on what my next step should be.
I have previously installed Anaconda (details below). Some advice appears to suggest to change PYTHONPATH but am unclear why or how. There's no way to change the system settings within the graphical interface and I've seen references to "$ export PYTHONPATH=/Applications/QGIS.app/Contents/Resources/python/" but that would appear that I would no longer be able to use my Anaconda install.
Or should install another version of Python that includes SIP (PyGIS) or should I download SIP separately?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Couldn't load SIP module. Python support will be disabled.
