I am trying to get graph_tool to run with my conda installation on Ubuntu.
I followed the steps here
<https://gist.github.com/floriangeigl/ee222e581b04a0d7922c> , which among
other things installed boost 1.63, if I understand correctly. I can use
graph_tool fine if I just "import graph_tool". However, if I want to use the
drawing functionalities, and do "from graph_tool.all import *", I get

The only clue a google-search gave was lack of boost, which is supposedly

It looks like you are missing cgal judging by your error message? Looking at
your list I note that I have
cgal 4.7 0 floriangeigl
installed in my conda system (I remember seeing your error message at some

I am maintaining graph-tool conda builds in the following gitlab repo:
Try installing in a clean environment using:
conda create -n graph-tool -c ostrokach-forge -c conda-forge -c
defaults --override-channels 'python=3.6' graph-tool
You can substitute ‘python=3.6’ with the version of python that you want.
An important note is that with conda packages, the plotting functionality
of graph-tool probably won’t work.
