I'm having a problem with fastqc. I don't understand why it claims not to be found. What am I missing?

You did not tell us what you have so it is difficult to tell you what is missing. What Galaxy and what version of Galaxy is this? Does it use Conda? Are you an admin? Have the fastqc ever worked? Do other tools with dependencies work?

I should have clarified this is on a local installation of 17.01. Conda is in use and I am an admin.

I have been able to confirm this is related to our cluster. I suspect something is wrong with the job_conf.xml.

<job_conf> <plugins> <plugin id="local" type="runner" load="" workers="4"/> <plugin id="drmaa" type="runner" load=""/> </plugins> <handlers> <handler id="main"/> </handlers> <destinations default="SGE"> <destination id="local" runner="local"/> <destination id="SGE" runner="drmaa"/> <param id="embed_metadata_in_job">False</param> <env file="/main/sites/galaxy/galaxy/htdocs/.venv/bin/activate"/> </destinations> </job_conf>
