Description Joseph Martinot-Lagarde 2014-07-19 20:06:11 UTC
Description of problem:
Spyder needs the qtwebkit package to run, but it is not listed as a dependency.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the spyder package without qtwebkit
2. try to run spyder

Actual results:
The following traceback is shown in the console and spyder doesn't start:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/spyderlib/spyder.py", line 2333, in main
    mainwindow = run_spyder(app, options, args)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/spyderlib/spyder.py", line 2221, in run_spyder
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/spyderlib/spyder.py", line 768, in setup

    from spyderlib.qt.QtWebKit import QWebView
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/spyderlib/qt/QtWebKit.py", line 10, in <module>
    from PyQt4.QtWebKit import *  # analysis:ignore
ImportError: libQtWebKit.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Expected results:
Spyder starts without errors.

Additional info:
This is supported by the following bug report: https://code.google.com/p/spyderlib/issues/detail?id=1897#makechanges
I remember having the same problem on CentOS but I can't remember which version.

Comment 3 Andriy 2014-08-07 08:37:53 UTC
libQtWebKit.so.4 is part of qtwebkit.

qtwebkit is needed for PyQt4.

spyder depends on PyQt4.

I am wondering, how it is possible to install spyder without qtwebkit? 

rpmreaper shows the spyder dependencies as shown below:
