Error: Environment /Users/myuser/.virtualenvs/iron does not contain activation script
I'm running on a raspbian buster with Python 3.7.3. I ran into the same issue, "ERROR...no activation script". I tried @Lombax answer but it didn't work.
However, I noticed that the version of
virtualenvwrapper I had installed was 5.0.0. I checked on PyPi and it's still at version 4.8.4. So I uninstalled virtualenv and virtualenvwrapper:
sudo pip3 uninstall virtualenv virtualenvwrapper.
Then I reinstalled both and specified the version:
sudo pip3 install virtualenv virtualenvwrapper=='4.8.4'
I sourced my .bashrc, in which I had appended the settings:
VIRTUALENVWRAPPER_PYTHON=/usr/bin/python3 VIRTUALENVWRAPPER_VIRTUALENV=/usr/local/bin/virtualenv export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH export WORKON_HOME=~/.virtualenvs source /usr/local/bin/virtualenvwrapper.sh
mkvirtualenv test works. Not sure what's the bug with version 5.x of virtualenvwrapper, in the meantime, this got around the problem for me, hope this helps.
I had the same error message when I used
mkvirtualenv on a new RPI4. I added these lines to my
.bashrc and it fixed the problem for me:
export WORKON_HOME=$HOME/.virtualenvs export VIRTUALENVWRAPPER_PYTHON=/usr/bin/python3 export VIRTUALENVWRAPPER_VIRTUALENV=/usr/local/bin/virtualenv source /usr/local/bin/virtualenvwrapper.sh export VIRTUALENVWRAPPER_ENV_BIN_DIR=bin # <== This line fixed it for me
This is a variation of the answer from @maxmcmahon, above, but setting VIRTUALENVWRAPPER_ENV_BIN_DIR to "bin". I did not need to change the versions of either virtualenv or virtualenvwrapper; the current versions installed by default were fine.
My solution was to add
export VIRTUALENVWRAPPER_ENV_BIN_DIR=usr/local/bin to my shell startup file after the
virtualenvwrapper.sh script gets called.
I figured out this fix after looking at the source and seeing that it was creating the
activate script in
usr/local/bin, but the
virtualenvwrapper.sh script was looking in just
bin for some reason.
My full shell startup config is now this:
export WORKON_HOME=$HOME/.virtualenvs export PROJECT_HOME=$HOME/Devel export VIRTUALENVWRAPPER_PYTHON=/usr/bin/python3 export VIRTUALENVWRAPPER_VIRTUALENV=/usr/local/bin/virtualenv source /usr/local/bin/virtualenvwrapper.sh export VIRTUALENVWRAPPER_ENV_BIN_DIR=usr/local/bin
