I’m frankly embarassed to be asking this question and I suspect I’m missing something painfully obvious, but the very first step for running Python demos seems to be referring to a path that doesn’t exist
pip install -user ./Python/Lib/gtilib
Is this sourced or supplied elsewhere?March 19, 2020 at 4:48 am #15821Chris MurrayParticipant
Issue solved – we were following instructions for version 126.96.36.199 with the new version 5 sdk. GTILIB is in the correct location in 188.8.131.52.March 19, 2020 at 10:03 am #15822
I’m glad the issue is resolved, normally if you run source SourceMet.env it will prompt for gtilib installation. If for some reason that doesn’t work, then you can try installing manually with pip command.May 26, 2020 at 7:37 am #15906Paul DaminkParticipant
This command from the manual : “python -m pip install –user Python/Lib/gtilib/” does not work.
The version GTISDK-Linux_x86_64_v184.108.40.206 does not contain a directory gtilib , only a file called gtilib.py in the directory \GTISDK-Linux_x86_64_v220.127.116.11\Apps\Python.

If you have an older version of the SDK installed and now trying to have a brand new installation of the latest SDK.
1) Remove all old drivers
sudo rm /etc/udev/rules.d/50-eusb.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/51-ftd3xx.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/52-gtiusb.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/70-gti.rules
2) Remove the python binding
pip uninstall gtilib
3) Make sure your system is up to date
sudo apt update; sudo apt upgrade
4) Navigate to the root directory of the latest SDK and setup the environment using
source SourceMe.envfollow the prompts and you’ll have the prerequisites, drivers and python binding installed.
The latest SDK should actually support Python 3 and SourceMe.env takes care of the overall setup.
Thanks for pointing out to this command: “python -m pip install –user Python/Lib/gtilib/”, I’ll make sure the document is updated in the next release.
Please let me know if you have issues running Python apps with SDK v18.104.22.168.May 27, 2020 at 12:47 pm #15911Paul DaminkParticipant
I don’t have an older version installed , i followed the manual , there doesn’t seem to be a directory gtilib anywhere

The library that you’re looking for is at SDK/Lib/Linux/x86_64/libGTILibrary.so.
You can add this path to the OS path or just copy the file into Apps/Python folder. Not sure why gtilib.py itself is unable to find it properly.
