Hi,

I'm new to bioinformatics.

I'm trying to install poretools. I've followed the steps from here: https://github.com/arq5x/poretools/blob/master/docs/content/installation.rst (basic installation)

At the second step on updating the PATH...may I know what does it mean? how should I incorporate it into the script?

I just ran export PATH=$PATH:/home/arq5x/.local/bin this without changing anything.

Poretools --help reported: the 'seaborn' distribution was not found and is required by poretools.

Your help is much appreciated. Thank you.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PATH_(variable)

PATH is an environment variable on Unix-like operating systems, DOS, OS/2, and Microsoft Windows, specifying a set of directories where executable programs are located. (...) When a command name is specified by the user or an exec call is made from a program, the system searches through $PATH, examining each directory from left to right in the list, looking for a filename that matches the command name. Once found, the program is executed as a child process of the command shell or program that issued the command.
