Hi @JeppeX, could you please confirm if installing 'glu' resolves the issue?

JeppeX commented on 2021-04-28 16:36

It seems that metashape depends on "extra/glu" (which is a Mesa OpenGL lib) in order to run. Otherwise running metashape gives: /opt/agisoft/metashape-pro/metashape: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I think it would be helpful to add this "glu" pkg to dependencies.

Thanks @dobedobedo, I ran the simplified version to make the correction:

sudo chmod -R 755 /opt/agisoft/metashape-pro/ /usr/share/licenses/agisoft-metashape-pro/licenses/

I updated the post-upgrade script to fix the permission issue. Please update.

pyroclast commented on 2020-11-10 16:41

Having permission issues after upgrade. Output from upgrade had many permission warnings, example of top warning:

warning: directory permissions differ on /opt/agisoft/metashape-pro/
filesystem: 755  package: 700

When I try to run the program:

$ agisoft-metashape-pro 
/usr/bin/agisoft-metashape-pro: line 2: /opt/agisoft/metashape-pro/ Permission denied

Updating permissions to match system allowed the program to run as expected.

Hi @theodore, yes I got the same error message on my Arch WSL. Haven't tried it on my Manjaro machine as I'm away from it at the moment, but the python module installation worked on my another Ubunt 18.04 workstation.
I tried manually compile the pyOpenSSL module into the agisoft python packages directory, but didn't change anything. May need to recompile the python with libssl option. Hope that Agisoft can provide some solutions soon.

Hi @dobedobedo, I've seen this thread on the agisoft forum when I was looking for a solution on my own and I was hoping that it was only ubuntu related since as they say the current workaround was to downgrade the ubuntu instalation. However it seems that apparently it is not. In any case thanks for commenting there.

So I assume that you are also getting the same error when you run the command, right?

dobedobedo commented on 2020-07-30 03:50

Hi @theodore, I suspect that the Metashape built-in python doesn't recognise the system openssl implementation. The same thing seems happening on Ubuntu 20.04 according to the forum posts.
I already post the errors on their official forum to see if there's a solution for this. You can also add some of your details there.

theodore commented on 2020-07-29 09:32

@dobedobedo yes I've used the python in the metashape-pro path not with the --user flag though. In any case I've tried your suggested commands and I am still getting the error regarding the ImportError: cannot import name 'HTTPSHandler'

Actually this is the complete error message:
