I am trying to Configure PyROOT in order to work with Pycharm 4 on Mac OS X Yosemite. so, I have installed ROOT (locally), by enabling the python option, and set up all of the necessary environment paths.
echo $PYTHONPATH /Users/natalia/Software/root/lib:/Users/natalia/Software/root/bin:/Users/natalia/Software/root
And It works just fine from the shell interpreter:
python Python 2.7.6 (default, Sep 9 2014, 15:04:36) [GCC 4.2.1 Compatible Apple LLVM 6.0 (clang-600.0.39)] on darwin Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> import ROOT >>> ROOT.__file__ '/Users/natalia/Software/root/lib/ROOT.pyc' >>>
In Pycharm I have tried to add these paths to the interpreter using Preferences->Project Interpreter->More->Show paths…
The paths that show there are the following:
file:///Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/pip-6.1.1-py2.7.egg file:///Users/natalia/Software/root/lib file:///System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7 file:///System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/plat-darwin file:///System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/plat-mac file:///System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/plat-mac/lib-scriptpackages file:///System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/Extras/lib/python file:///System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/lib-tk file:///System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload file:///System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/Extras/lib/python/PyObjC file:///Library/Python/2.7/site-packages file:///Users/natalia/Software/root/bin file:///Users/natalia/Software/root
and then I created the following file in Pycharm:
import os os.system("echo $PYTHONPATH") import ROOT
When run, it returns this:
Traceback (most recent call last): /Users/natalia/Software:/Users/natalia/Software/root:/Users/natalia/Work/Projects/untitled File "/Users/natalia/Work/Projects/untitled/l.py", line 3, in <module> import ROOT ImportError: No module named ROOT
Notice how this PYTHONPATH that’s printed from python in Pycharm doesn’t include (for a reason unknown to me) the path that actually includes the ROOT.pyc file, that is:
I have also tried doing the dirty trick of
but I found it doesn’t actually change the path if I print it afterwards.
I am totally confused as to where Pycharm gets the paths from?? Any possible solutions would be welcome and greatly appreciated.
Thanks & Regards
