Dear Rifat,

did you read the installation sections for Linux
http://obspy.org/wiki/InstallationLinux on our homepage? For Debian
and Ubuntu this should be straight forward as there are packages provided.

Cheers,
Robert

Hi everybody,

I am a new user of obspy, I could install it my laptop which has Ubuntu 9.04 following your instructions, for my personal computer I have root permit, then I have not problems about instalation.

However I would like to install in my computer’s office as a user in my home directory without root permit, Do you have a tar file of the package?

Thanks for your help

Hi Juan,

non-root installations are always a bit more troublesome - but doable
with a little effort. However you will need at least the basic build
tools (gcc, make, etc.) on your system. There are different approaches
depending what your current system already offers, so either

(1) if there is Python (>=2.5.x and <3.x) already installed, you could
reuse the system-wide python by creating a virtual environment - see
http://obspy.org/wiki/NoRootEasyInstall for creating such

Once you have your own virtual environment you can than use the
"easy_install" script to fetch missing packages.

Next check which dependencies are already installed via

dpkg --get-selections | grep python

Ideally you should have the following packages installed

python-setuptools
python-dev
python-lxml
python-numpy
python-scipy
python-matplotlib

If not you need to install them locally by following the instructions
at http://obspy.org/wiki/InstallationFromSource

Ofc, skip the Python installation and any dependencies which is
already installed system wide. Also be sure to actually be within an
initialized virtual environment - "which python" should point to your
local python directory

(2) Install everything from source without a virtual environment.
Essentially follow http://obspy.org/wiki/InstallationFromSource.

Note: Sources for ObsPy can be either checked out from trunk via
subversion (https://svn.obspy.org/trunk/) or downloaded from the
Python Package Index
(http://pypi.python.org/pypi?%3Aaction=search&term=obspy). But if you
follow the instructions above you don't need to download them manually
as this is done with the easy_install script.

Hope it helps,
Robert

Hi Robert,

Thanks for your answer.

Right, I followed the first method to install Obspy, it worked
without complains. For your records the linux distribution I am working
in is debian-lenny kernel 2.6.26-2-amd64.

Many thanks for your help.
