I installed the GDAL library on Ubuntu 14.04 through the Anaconda (Python 3.5) distribution. After installation, which seems to work fine, I try importing it and I get this error:
>>>from osgeo import gdal Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> File "/home/klab/anaconda3/lib/python3.5/site-packages/osgeo/__init__.py", line 21, in <module> _gdal = swig_import_helper() File "/home/klab/anaconda3/lib/python3.5/site packages/osgeo/__init__.py", line 17, in swig_import_helper_mod = imp.load_module('_gdal', fp, pathname, description) File "/home/klab/anaconda3/lib/python3.5/imp.py", line 242, in load_module return load_dynamic(name, filename, file) File "/home/klab/anaconda3/lib/python3.5/imp.py", line 342, in load_dynamic return _load(spec) ImportError: libcom_err.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I tried installing through PIP and Conda install commands with the same error. I did go to the directory where this should exist, and it indeed is missing. I figured that if this were a true dependency, it would have installed automatically. Has anybody else had this problem?
I was trying to follow this link, but it wasn't helpful. https://groups.google.com/a/continuum.io/forum/#!topic/anaconda/2-bXTbSiQzg
