My local galaxy instance tries to make conda to install samtools each time when I load data. Unfortunate 32-bit samtools is not available via conda installation. Indeed I have installed samtools by sudo apt-get install samtools and it locates in /usr/bin. My question is how to let galaxy recognize this installation of samtools and does not install it again? Many thanks in advance.

Hello,

You need to add Samtools to your PATH. There are a few other posts that describe how to do this. Search posts for "samtools" and "path" to review. Examples:

Thanks! Jen, Galaxy team

Hi, Jen, Many thanks for your reply.

Use $ which -a samtools, the samtools is /usr/bin/samtools. The path by $ echo $PATH is /home/wl/bin:/home/wl/.local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games:/home/wl/miniconda3/bin. But galaxy still does not find samtools. Do I need to explicitly make a link to let galaxy to know where samtools is? If so, how can I do this? By the way, my R installation is in /usr/bin/R ($ which -a R) and galaxy can find and use it. Many thanks again.

You probably need to point to the expected samtools version that the Samtools tool's require.

Try this: https://biostar.usegalaxy.org/p/10055/#10117

Dear Jen, I cannot figure out how to sort it out yet. Actually I have nothing to do with samtools. I have found galaxy let conda to install samtools when uploading CSV data files from local machine. It seems that galaxy try to install samtools again and again in a manner of infinite loop, which prevents me go any further. I just stuck here and desperately need to sort out this problem.
