Running python commands on putty


I want to run the following command on my virtual machine. -c fastq_to_fastaqual -f seqs.fastq -o fastaqual
The command doesn't seem to work despite the presence of python in my computer. Can I please know the reason for this?

Hi @Brigitta1,

do you have a conda environment active? Is the script you trying to use present in your working directory?
That command does not seems to be part of the qiime2 distribution, what are you trying to achieve with it?
Do you get any error which can be helpful to see what is happening? Did you try to run as:

python -c fastq_to_fastaqual -f seqs.fastq -o fastaqual

I hope this can help!
