I'm new to anaconda.

How can I install the dlx package (https://pypi.org/project/dlx/) in anaconda?

I found it here: (https://anaconda.org/auto/dlx).

conda install auto::dlx

Solving environment: failed

UnsatisfiableError: The following specifications were found to be in conflict:
  - auto::dlx
  - secretstorage
Use "conda info <package>" to see the dependencies for each package.

I get no result from conda info auto::dlx.

Can anyone help me?


Thanks to vivekwisdom for leading me on the right path.

PyCharm created a virtual environment. I had to activate it first (source activate <name_of_venv>) and then install dlx using pip. It didn't work via conda install auto::dlx because it was missing cython, which I also installed via pip.

As per the link you provided, conda install -c auto dlx is the correct way to install the package in Anaconda.
