Navigator not loading in correctly

I’ve seen plenty of issues relating to Navigator not opening correctly, but my case is unique and I haven’t found anybody with the exact same problem, hence the creation of the topic.

The Problem

After running anaconda-navigator from the terminal (while already having run conda activate base), the app hangs with this immovable non-window popup thing that times out with this message:

What I’ve already done:

  1. I have already completed the steps “Navigator error on start up” and “Issues launching or initializing” (the first two) from the official troubleshooting page.
  2. I’ve also ran conda update conda and conda update anaconda-navigator

Worth Noting:

Jupyter Notebook seems to work just fine (when activated in terminal using jupyter notebook)

Any help or insight is much appreciated.

dear noahmcivor.

thank you of posting.

Below is a portion of the anaconda-navigator source code.

As you can see, we are importing the Qt4 library.

The reason most Anaconda-navigators don’t start is probably because the Qt4 libraries haven’t been imported.

To resolve this issue, you need to make sure there is no interference between your environment and Anaconda’s Qt4.

If that doesn’t fix the problem, you’ll need to either install Anaconda anew or make your environment a Qt environment like KDE or LxQt.

So far, that’s all we can answer with the information you have given us.

Regards, you.

I will definitely take a look thank you for your response. I was not aware that Anaconda was Qt-based.
