During preprocessing AFNI crashes (seems like it can’t find the python directory) but this error only occurs for a handful of our subjects. What might be the source of the problem and why is it not a consistent issue? Any input would be great appreciated.

/usr/bin/env: ‘python’: No such file or directory
That actually suggests ‘python’ is not in your PATH. Is that possible?
I don’t think that is the case I can talk to our system administrator but first I will try to run these subjects again. The strangest thing is that things ran fine for some subjects and not others. I don’t know how the python path could temporarily disappeared.
It is hard to guess how that might be happening, but it does look like /usr/bin/env complaining that there is no ‘python’ to run.
That is the first line of align_epi_anat.py. Is this in the context of an afni_proc.py script?
I’m new to AFNI and just installed it, but I’d like to add that I’m receiving a similar error: env: python: No such file or directory when using afni_proc.py and even afni_system_check.py. I think the issue may be that AFNI is looking for “python” when it should be looking for “python3”, because python3 is on usr/local/bin path in my case. Would appreciate any help
What is the output of:
? Can you please copy+paste the text here.
env: python: No such file or directory
So, yes, it looks like you don’t have Python at all on your computer then. I have never really seen this before, because most operating systems come with at least some Python in the path, to be used.
What is the output of A):
I have python on my computer, I know this because I installed it. The problem, I believe, is that it’s called “python3” and not “python”.
lsb_release -a lends command not found, I’m on a new Mac with M1.
Output of echo $PATH:
Consider installing miniconda to manage python and other software for you. On my M1 Mac, I do have python installed by default in /usr/bin. It’s version 2.7.18 on a Mac with 12.2.1 (Monterey) that is just a symbolic link to the system library framework version. The instructions are shown below for conda.

What was your solution, may I ask?
Did you make your own symbolic link from /usr/local/bin/pyhton3 to /usr/local/bin/python?
This suggests that homebrew might not be putting any ‘python’ in the path dirs, but it is also strange for there to be no system python under /usr/bin.
To be sure:
- What OS version are you running?
- What it just view homebrew that you installed python?
- Was anything special done for python in your case?
I did not create a symlink because I didn’t want to disable SIP on my Mac. I’m using Monterey 12.3, and I downloaded python3 using the installer from the python website; I didn’t do anything with homebrew other than what was required for setting up AFNI. I downloaded miniconda and created a conda environment for AFNI. I was able to run afni_system_check.py after activating this environment, as described here: https://afni.nimh.nih.gov/pub/dist/doc/htmldoc/background_install/install_instructs/steps_mac.html#setup-python-opt
I am sorry for the late reply my attention had to move away from this issue. I am using a Linux machine and I ran afni_system_check.py -check_all. I certainly have python on my machine. Below are excerpts from the output.
which python : /usr/bin/python
python version : 2.7.5
instances of various programs found in PATH:
afni : 1 (/usr/local/afni/bin/afni)
R : 1 (/usr/bin/R)
python : 1 (/usr/bin/python2.7)
python2 : 1 (/usr/bin/python2.7)
python3 : 1 (/usr/bin/python3.6)
Is there a context difference, meaning are you sometimes running under a conda environment?
One thing that is odd is that afni_system_check and align_epi_anat.py invoke python in exactly the same way. So it is curious that afni_system_check.py runs well, but align_epi_anat.py gives an error. There seems to be an environmental difference between how they are being run.
To be sure, what is the output from:
/usr/bin/env python -V
And if you have a conda env, would you run the same commands from there?
