On SAMSON Connect it is said that Python Scripting is installed, but I cannot see the Python Scripting icon in SAMSON
It means that we were unable to detect a python executable during the launch of SAMSON. It is necessary to specify the path to python executable in your environment variables. Please, check the Python Scripting installation guide.
Linux: Missing libraries at launching SAMSON with Python installed via Anaconda
If you have problems with launching SAMSON with Python Scripting Element and Python installed through Anaconda, like a missing libPNG.so or other libraries (e.g. with libGL.so: unable to load driver: radeonsi_dri.so).
This might be due to the libstdc++.so shipped with Anaconda and the path to Anaconda lib folder preceding the LD_LIBRARY_PATH in the SAMSON launching script. In this case, the problem can be solved by preloading libstdc++.so. Detect where in your system you have libstdc++.so installed (usually it is in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/):
Add the next line in the beggining of the SAMSON launching script (SAMSON-Core.sh, placed in /path/to/SAMSON/Binaries/):
