Re: [SOLVED] pyrate Installed but Does Not Show up as WB Option

@NormandC: I'm sorry, I forgot that you are using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. It contains a version of Qt5 that's too old to support Pyside2 required to work with Python 3. Thank you again! It seems that anaconda includes Freecad. My anaconda is up to date. So, if I install FreeCAD in the anaconda environment...

Re: [SOLVED] pyrate Installed but Does Not Show up as WB Option

@NormandC: Thank you for all this information!
The freecad-stable PPA for Ubuntu provides a dual Python2/3 metapackage
I don't have the freecad-python3 package installed. apt-get cannot find it, although 'apt-cache policy | grep freecad' lists several repos with 'freecad-stable' in them.

Re: [SOLVED] pyrate Installed but Does Not Show up as WB Option

@joha2: Thank you for the examples! I installed pyrate on my anaconda distribution and ran the first example just fine. I want to be Zeemax-free! Anyway, I have some naïve questions: The conda channel which holds pyrate is 'freecad'. Conda's 'freecad' channel also shows FreeCAD itself available! How...

Re: [SOLVED] pyrate Installed but Does Not Show up as WB Option

Now I wanted to make some test, but have no idea how to begin. Do you have a simple example or a short guide how to start? I second that. Some examples would be really helpful. @looo: I am a bit confused. If pyrate installs on FC18, that means it is dependent on Python 2.7, doesn't it? So, shouldn'...

Re: pyrate Installed but Does Not Show up as WB Option

@yoha2: Thank you. I saw a posting on the github page for pyrate, mentioning the same issue. Somebody suggested that the 'ruamel.yaml' module be installed via pip. I did that and the problem went away. I cannot find that posting now. What puzzles me is that there was no problem around the middle of ...

Re: pyrate Installed but Does Not Show up as WB Option

@triplus: Thank you for your suggestion to keep only pyrate in '~/.FreeCAD/Mod'. Without any other module present in that directory, 'pyrate' showed up fine as a WB selection. That got me thinking. Adding (copying) the previously installed modules back to '~/.FreeCAD/Mod' one by one and checking whe...

Re: pyrate Installed but Does Not Show up as WB Option

@triplus Thank you for your time. sudo apt-get install python python-numpy python-scipy python-matplotlib python-yaml python-sympy Done. All these packages are now installed. (I use Anaconda for my Python needs, so Ubuntu 16.04's Python did not have some of this stuff installed.) I also uninstalled ...

Re: pyrate Installed but Does Not Show up as WB Option

@triplus: Thank you for your insightful recommendation to turn on all output options. A lot of messages come out because quite a few modules are loaded, but one of them stuck out like a sore thumb: Init: Initializing /home/cflin/.FreeCAD/Mod/pyrate(InitGui.py not found)... ignore Upon closer look, i...

[SOLVED] pyrate Installed but Does Not Show up as WB Option

I have installed the optical design WB pyrate with the add-on manager. The add-on manager shows pyrate as installed and even updates it, but no pyrate WB option shows up in the WB drop-menu. Earlier, there was a discussion thread about the aesthetics of the pyrate logo, but I think my issue is diffe...

@Kunda1: Shouldn't the string "[SOLVED]" also show up in the title in the subsequent responses to my original post?
