Fail to run

Dear Senior Engineers,
I bumped into a problem. I can’t execute The error message is “failed to import PyQt4.QtGui”. My AFNI is run on Linux. I use “conda” to install python and its packages. After I tried to search for and read the history problems about his, I modified PYTHONPATH and DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH, but still can’t find PyQt. Please help me out. The following are the messages I got when I was trying to enter different commands.

When I type “which python”, I got:
When I type “conda list pyqt”, I got:
# packages in environment at /home/brain/anaconda2:
pyqt 5.6.0 py27_3 conda-forge
When I type “printf ‘import sip\nprint sip\n’ | python”, I got:
<module ‘sip’ from ‘/home/brain/anaconda2/lib/python2.7/site-packages/’>
When I type “printf ‘import PyQt5\nprint PyQt5\n’ | python”, I got
<module ‘PyQt5’ from /home/brain/anaconda2/lib/python2.7/sitepackages/PyQt5/init.pyc’>

You should be able use with conda,
however note that the uber_*.py programs are based
on PyQt4, not PyQt5.

Also, note that DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH does not
apply to Linux, just OS X.
