Qiime2 Studio error on Ubuntu 12.04


I’m setting up QIIME2 Studio on an Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64 bit platform. I’ve successfully installed QIIME2, and I am able to proceed through the installation instructions for the studio, until the following line:

npm install && npm run build

At this point I get the following output:

npm not ok

I have updated all of the Node.js packages and dependencies, and reinstalled npm. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas what might be causing these errors?



Hi @Djeppschmidt!

I think some of the problem is that Ubuntu 12.04 has a very stale version of Node.js and NPM.

Ideally you should be able to follow these instructions to get the latest version, but I haven’t tried them on Ubuntu 12.04 myself.

Once you have a more recent Node/NPM you should be able to try the installation instructions again.

Let me know how that goes!
