Troubleshooting

This troubleshooting page is to help ensure you software environment is setup correctly to run this lecture set locally on your machine.

Fixing Your Local Environment

To set up a standard desktop environment, you can run the instructions in our local setup lecture.

If you already have, make sure to try deleting your .julia directory (the “user depot,” where packages are stored) and re-running the lectures (after running ] add InstantiateFromURL!).

You can find this directory by running DEPOT_PATH[1] in a Julia REPL.

Upgrading Julia

See the lecture section on getting Atom and Jupyter working with a new version.

Resetting a JupyterHub Lecture Set

The lectures are delivered to JupyterHubs using nbgitpuller.

To reset a single notebook, simply delete it and click the relevant link again.

To reset your whole lecture set, run rm -rf quantecon-notebooks-julia in the Terminal (after cd-ing to where they’re downloaded, which is usually the root) and click any lecture’s link again.
