Thanks @ElifKardas for your post!
Hi @thermokarst, I am also trying to install the plugin in qiime2 environment. I have already installed the PICRUST2 separately outside the qiime2 environment. Can I install it again in qiime2 again? Do they work independently well and not interfere with each other? I took me the whole morning to figure out the installation, and I just don’t want to waste my effort…The reason of my doing so is that I prefer working with QIIME2 and the output files from the q2-picrust2 plugin are said to be compatible with qiime2. I started with this first, actually, but did not work out. Thank you!
As long as you installed both in their own conda environments they should totally fine and independent of each other.
If you had installation problems with q2-picrust2 feel free to start a new thread with details about your specific issue. If the issue you had was specific to the stand-alone picrust then I would recommend getting a hold of the developer on its github page.
Just an update here. Sounds like the current q2-picrust2 is not compatible with QIIME 2 2020.2, but is with 2019.10 due to some dependency issues which will likely be resolved in the future released of q2-picrust2 but currently are not.
So, you can either install a new conda environment with q2-2019.10 and install q2-picrust2 there or carry on with using the stand-alone version of picrust2.
Thank you for your kind response. I was able to install the stand-alone PICRUST2, but not the q2- one. I don’t remember what exactly error I got, but errors occurred consistently and I gave up. I have been using QIIME2- 2020.2. So I think you are right the q2-PICRUST is not compatible.
And the qiime2 and picrust have their own conda environment/file and look not interfering each other
All the best,
