GDAL image not found error

This post is more of a reminder to myself if I ever run into this issue again. If it helps someone else who runs into this issue, that’s even better.

We are a science heavy shop and most of our users write programs using Python. To help maintain a consistent environment we install Anaconda Python for our users to use. This way the programming environment is contained in the Anaconda environment and if anything breaks it’s easy enough to trash the Anaconda folder and start all over.

One of my users created a Python Env installing Python 3.5 so he could move from Python 2.7 to 3.5. When he went to use GDAL, specifically the gdalwarp command, he got the following error: image not found. After repeated creations of new environments and a couple uninstalls I found some info on stackoverflow that helped. It seems the version of gdal installed by Anaconda was 2.0.0 and not compatible with the newer versions of python. After running the following command he was able to use GDAL and gdalwarp commands without issue.

conda install -c conda-forge gdal=2.1.3

 

Getting Started with Adobe CC and Munki

I have been tasked by my organization to install Adobe Creative Cloud apps on our twenty plus users computers who use it. We don’t utilize the teams or enterprise dashboard. Just the trusty ol’ serial number and Creative Cloud Packager.

This post is going to focus on getting Adobe Creative Cloud apps added to the Munki repo and successfully pushed out to users with no errors or Munki continuous install loops. The end goal is for the user to install the Adobe CC apps using Munki, and not require the user to sign in to Creative Cloud Desktop App in order to use the program. When the program is launched it should open and work.

Note: This post assumes you have some basic knowledge of Munki, MunkiAdmin (GUI for Munki) and a Munki Repo is setup and running.
