Please kindly assist, I am trying to use Qiime2 to convert a tsv table to a qzv/qza and I keep getting errors. I added a column to my metadata file in google sheets and i converted the table to a tsv file. now i want to convert the table to a qza/qzv file.
Thanks for reaching out! Can you please provide us with more information? More specifically:
Is this a metadata file? If so, what are you trying to do with your metadata? Are you trying to run metadata tabulate? Or use it as a parameter in another command? Outside of metadata tabulate you cannot turn your metadata file into a QIIME 2 Artifact.
What error message(s) are you receiving?
This information will help us to better assist you. Thanks!
yes, that's what i was trying to do. I have a metadata file in the qza format and i wanted to add an extra column to the table. i downloaded the table and made copied the information to a google sheet. i edited the google sheet and now i want to convert the google sheet to a qiiime qzv table
hello, thank you. i installed windows subsytem for linux and I have been installing qiime2 following the respective prompts for windows subsytem for linux. at some point if i ran qiime help/ info, I could see that qiime was installed but not anymore
We need more information to be able to help! Could you please give us a step by step of what you are doing to activate your qiime2 env?
Could you also provide what error is occurring that is letting you know that qiime2 isn't installed?
So firstly, i opened the command prompt (Miniconda 3), then i typed 'conda activate qiime2-2023.2'
when i do that, it then says 'qiime is not recognized as an internal or external command', operable program or batch file'
it also does the same when i type 'qiime --help'
You are writing qiime2-2023.5 but the name of your environment is qiime2-2023.2.
This doesn't matter however, because as stated previously, you can not run qiime on windows. You said you installed windows subsystem for linux. Now you need to open a shell to that operating system and enter your commands there.
hello @colinvwood@cherman2 , i have been able to install qiime2 and i was able to create some folders and download the data for the importing data tutorial. I downloaded them to my root directly. However, I was wondering if you can help on how I can change directories or say view what's on my Desktop or what's in a certain folder on a Windows (WSL) . for example I ran this: (qiime2-2023.5) [email protected]:~# cd ~/Desktop
-bash: cd: /root/Desktop: No such file or directory
and I got the "no such file directory", I keep getting that error no matter how i change the command.
