When you start gnuradio-companion or execute grcc, if the system isn't configured properly for GRC to find the GNU Radio Python scripts and/or libraries, then you will see an error message similar to this one:

ModNotFound.png

If you get this error message and you're running Linux, try the instructions on this page to see if any of them fix the issue. For issues and settings for OSX, see the MacInstall guide.

A. Determine the GNU Radio install prefix[edit]

If you don't know or remember your installation prefix, perform the following step:

  • on a terminal screen, enter gnuradio-config-info --prefix

then use that prefix in place of {your-prefix} in the following commands.

B. Finding the Python library[edit]

Using a terminal, enter the following command, substituting the prefix you found above in place of {your-prefix}:

find {your-prefix} -name gnuradio | grep "packages"

Put the appropriate paths it found into the export commands below. Note that the paths are separated by colons :

C. Setting PYTHONPATH[edit]

- For almost all Debian / Ubuntu (and derivative) systems, and most other 32-bit Unix/Linux systems, the paths will look like this:

export PYTHONPATH={your-prefix}/lib/{Py-version}/dist-packages:{your-prefix}/lib/{Py-version}/site-packages:$PYTHONPATH

- For other 64-bit systems, the paths will look like this:

export PYTHONPATH={your-prefix}/lib64/{Py-version}/site-packages:$PYTHONPATH

D. Setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH[edit]

- For almost all Debian / Ubuntu (and derivative) systems, and most other 32-bit Unix/Linux systems, use:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH={your-prefix}/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

- For other 64-bit systems, use:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH={your-prefix}/lib64:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

E. Store the commands in a Bash start-up file[edit]

Once you have determined the correct two export commands to use, open your text editor and put them in your ~/.bash_aliases or ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile file. Save the file. On your terminal enter exit. Then start a new terminal.
As an example, your entries might be:

export PYTHONPATH=/usr/local/lib/python3/dist-packages:/usr/local/lib/python3.6/dist-packages:$PYTHONPATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
