I installed ROOT from the system repository in Fedora. Now, while trying to use pyROOT for the first time, I encounter an issue as the line
from a python3 jupyter-notebook instance fails with the following error message:
ModuleNotFoundError Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-2-ee8dc4376aa8> in <module>
----> 1 import ROOT
/usr/lib64/python3.7/site-packages/ROOT.py in <module>
830 ip = get_ipython()
831 if hasattr(ip,"kernel"):
--> 832 import JupyROOT
833 import JsMVA

529 except Exception:
--> 531 return _orig_ihook( name, *args, **kwds )
533 __builtin__.__import__ = _importhook
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'JupyROOT'
How do I have to setup ROOT in order to provide the required prerequisites - is it necessary to build ROOT from source in order to enable python bindings?
Thanks for your time!
ROOT Version: 6.18/04
Platform: Fedora 30
Compiler: gcc 9.2.1
Can you check your directory:
It seems PyROOT is installed there (at least ROOT.py), but JupyROOT is not found. Can you confirm there is no subdirectory called JupyROOT in that directory?
On the other hand, where is the rest of ROOT installed? Perhaps @amadio knows how the Fedora ROOT package works and where JupyROOT is supposed to be installed.
On the other hand, I understand you are using PyROOT from IPython or from a Jupyter notebook. If you use just the Python prompt, it will not even try to import JupyROOT and you should not see the error.
Hello - thanks a lot for looking into the issue.
I can confirm that there is no subdirectory for
ROOT.py is located there. The rest of ROOT is installed under the
/usr/ prefix, hence in
/include/ (reported by
Yes, I’m using it from a Jupyter notebook and can only say, that with
import ROOT it reports this error (using python3, as mentioned).
After some further digging, the problem turned out to have a rather simple solution.
JupyROOT is available from the software repository:
dnf install python3-jupyroot
That solved the issue and the import works.
