Best practice to make system `conda` available to DSS?

What would be the best practice to make my system `conda` available to DSS?

Adding `conda`'s path to PATH does not always work (ie. using DSS virtualbox image, where DSS launches at server startup).

I ended up creating a symlink of `conda` in /dss/bin/, but is that good practice? Or is there a better way?

    The best practice is to put it in your ~/.profile with a line like:

    export PATH="$PATH:/path/to/conda/bin/directory"

    This way:

    • All tools get it, including things not directly running in DSS (installer, ...)
    • Putting it at the end of your path avoids your system python being shadowed by conda's Python (which cannot do virtual envs)
