jupyterlab_launcher0.11.0 break python dependency

specter119 commented on 2018-06-15 02:43

also update jupyterlab_launcher to 0.11.0 will break python dependency (2018/06/15).

I think should add nodejs as dependency

There's a typo in the PKGBUILD: ln -s "$pkgdir"/usr/... should be ln -s /usr/... (without the $pkgdir).

Note that the assets are not copied to /usr/share/jupyter/lab because of the --skip-build option. This is actually a good thing as we would otherwise end up with two copies of them, one in /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/jupyterlab and the other in /usr/share/jupyter/lab. I've open an issue (

The last problem is that these directories are not user-writable. We may want to warn users who wish to install extensions that they can set their own directory with export JUPYTERLAB_DIR="$XDG_DATA_HOME"/jupyter/lab (e.g. in a profile.d or .bashrc) then build their own jupyterlab application with jupyter lab build. This way they won't use the shared one at /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/jupyterlab and will be able to install extensions with juypter labextension install <my-extension>.

PS: is the build step necessary?

jupyter-lab command fails: Cannot find template: "error.html" In "/usr/share/jupyter/lab/static"

I solved it by:

$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/jupyterlab /usr/share/jupyter/lab

Pastafarianist - I had the exact same error code as you did. Here is what I did to get it working.

1) Used yaourt to install this package

2) Tried starting jupyter lab with 'jupyter lab'

3) Got the same error you posted

4) Went to /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/jupyterlab/ and found there was no staging folder

5) Went to the github and found the staging folder. Downloaded a copy, and copied the missing staging folder to /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/jupyterlab/

6) Ran 'sudo jupyter lab'. The first setup needed root permissions for the first time setup for some reason.

7) Restarted it without sudo and it worked

I'm pretty new to this, so I'm not sure if this was the best way to handle it. That being said, it has worked fine so far.

@WIP @mosfest could you share the instructions on making this work if you succeeded?

arojas commented on 2018-03-08 18:25

Orphaned as I have no time to make this work. Will probably move it to community at some point, since it's going to be a standard package in Sagemath.

I had the same issue Pastafarianist was having, and I found the staging folder was missing. I just downloaded the folder from the jupyterlab github ( and put it in /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/jupyterlab/staging/ and it seems to be working now.

Hello, thanks for this package. I just want to say that I had to run this command to make it work properly : ln -s /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/jupyterlab /usr/share/jupyter/lab

Indeed the /usr/share/jupyter/lab directory does not exists but all the files are in the python3.6 directory.
