I have now tried several times to install Data Science Studio (Free Edition) on my Mac (Catalina 10.15.4), unfortunately without success. First I tried the regular way https://www.dataiku.com/product/get-started/mac/ and get the error message "Java is required - DSS needs Java to be installed. Please go to http://java.com to install Java" and in the console:
Starting Java check
[Install] [*] Could not find suitable version of Java
[Java check] EOF reached
Java check terminated with status 1
Running DSS task for 'stop'
But I already have the following java versions in the directory /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines
So the error probably occurs because the correct java version cannot be found. To fix this I have tried the following things.
export JAVA_HOME=`/usr/libexec/java_home -v 1.8` when I enter echo $JAVA_HOME I also get the right path /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/adoptopenjdk-8.jdk/Contents/Home
export JAVA_HOME=/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/adoptopenjdk-8.jdk/Contents/Home and echo $JAVA_HOME
(I followed these guides:
java -version returns the set version. But I still get the same error message.
While trying to follow this guide https://doc.dataiku.com/dss/latest/installation/java_env.html , I noticed that
$HOME/Library/DataScienceStudio/dss_home returns "No such file or directory".
I hope you might have an idea where my mistake is and how I can get DSS installed and opened. Otherwise I will probably have to look for another tool for data analysis.
I suggest trying the following steps:
1. Ensure your JAVA_HOME export statement is added to your bash_profile:
1. Stop DSS by running this command:
2. Find your original .DMG installer (see this documentation), open it and drag and drop the application to the Applications folder to overwrite the existing one.
3. Restart DSS: search for the DataScienceStudio application with Spotlight and double-click to start it.
If that doesn't work, could you please send attach the log file ~/Library/DataScienceStudio/dss_home/run/install.log to this thread?
thank you for your very fast answer!
I added the JAVA_HOME export statement to my bash_profil.
But I couldn't stop DSS by running your command because in my Library folder is no DataScienceStudio folder.
So I just delete the DataScienceStudio application and reinstall it but unfortunately the same error occured and /Library/DataScienceStudio is still "No such file or directory". Therefore I cannot send the log file.
Is it possible to create the folder manually?
The correct path is ~/Library/DataScienceStudio/dss_home. In your last message, you mention using /Library without ~ at the beginning.
~ indicates your user home directory folder, with the absolute path /Users/<your-user-name>.
The procedure I explained above should work after specifying the right path with ~.
Hope it helps,
Thanks. The listing seems correct and there is indeed no DataScienceStudio folder. Could you run again Step 1 of https://www.dataiku.com/product/get-started/mac/? And then send us the same listing again, or any error message if any.
I have very good news! 😊
I run again Step 1, but the listing was still the same without the DataScienceStudio folder. I also couldn't open it - still get the error "Java is required - DSS needs Java to be installed."
Then I tried to open it on another way: I double clicked: /Applications/DataScienceStudio.app/Contents/MacOS/DataScienceStudio in the Finder and then DataScienceStudio opened. Now I also have the folder /Users/kira/Library/DataScienceStudio
I still can't open DSS directly via /Applications/DataScienceStudio.app, but now I know how to open it in a different way.
Thanks a lot, Alex for the quick answers and helpful tips! 👍
That's good to hear. It seems your issue was linked to the way you were opening the app (Step 2). The recommended way is through Spotlight.
To open DSS easily, I suggest:
1. removing the existing app from your Dock (assuming you have it already)
2. finding the new one from Spotlight ("DataScienceStudio") or from the Finder on /Applications/DataScienceStudio.app/Contents/MacOS/DataScienceStudio
3. dragging and dropping it to your Dock
