I am trying to run tools that require Biopython or Python. I installed "package_python_3_4" but it is not working. It seems that "zlib version 1.2.8" package is installed but does not work. I tried to install/uninstall it couple of times, but it has no effect.

What should I do?

Thank you Monika

Hi Monika,

which tools are you trying to use? Are they declaring their requirement like this (in the tool wrapper .xml files): <requirement type="package" version="3.4">python3</requirement>


In addition, I just checked the toolshed recipe for the package_python_3_4 installation and I think it does not automatically make the installed zlib available at runtime. So maybe a tool using zlib-dependent functionality of python3 should also include the requirement declaration: <requirement type="package" version="1.2.8">zlib</requirement>

You could try adding this line to the requirements section of the tool wrappers and just see what happens.
