obspy via anaconda on arch linux

Dear obspy users.

I am trying ti run obspy on arch linux (latest stable Manjaro).

I downloaded anaconda from AUR and installed it via .sh script.

Then, I installed additional python env (anaconda installed python3.6) and I can now start python3.4 with source activate python34.

From python34 I installed obspy with the same commands written on the obspy installation page.

It went throug without any complains.

Now, the problems start.

when i start python and want to import, lets say read from obspy, i get this error:

Python 3.4.5 | packaged by conda-forge | (default, Jul 9 2016, 15:13:38)
[GCC 4.8.2 20140120 (Red Hat 4.8.2-15)] on linux
Type “help”, “copyright”, “credits” or “license” for more information.

from obspy import read

from lxml import etree
ImportError: libicui18n.so.56: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I guess some packages did not get installed?

Did anyone had similar problems?



That's a packaging problem in anaconda, see


Thank you very much!
