I am using Ubuntu 16.04. When I installed anaconda I was facing the same problem. I tried this and it resolved my problem.

step 1 : $ conda install -c anaconda anaconda-navigator​

step 2 : $ anaconda-navigator

Hope it will help.

Solution 5 - Anaconda

Simply create a new text document called "anaconda-navigator.desktop" in your home directory by the terminal command:

gedit anaconda-navigator.desktop

Then enter the following in your text document:

#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open
[Desktop Entry]
Comment=Open Anaconda Navigator

Save the file, then move it to your local applications folder:

mv anaconda-navigator.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/

Once this is done, you will be able to search for "Anaconda" on your applications screen, right click, and add to favorites. This way you don't have to go through the terminal every time!

Solution 6 - Anaconda

add anaconda installation path to .bashrc

export PATH="$PATH:/home/username/anaconda3/bin"

load in terminal

$ source ~/.bashrc

run from terminal

$ anaconda-navigator

Solution 7 - Anaconda

Try this:

First go to the anaconda3 binaries directory by running

 cd anaconda3/bin

and now use this following command to open the anaconda-navigator


Solution 8 - Anaconda

If all the above methods are not working, you probably install anaconda with root privileges. Remove it with sudo rm -rf /root/anaconda3 and reinstall without sudo.

Solution 9 - Anaconda


export PATH=/home/yourUserName/anaconda3/bin:$PATH

This will get you going! cheers!

Solution 10 - Anaconda

By default anaconda is installed at /root/anaconda3 path, if you want to access it then you should run

  • su -
  • cd /root/anaconda3/bin
  • ./jupyter-notebook or ./anaconda-navigator

If you want to change the path, just login as a admin and copy folder to /opt/ or reinstall it.

Solution 11 - Anaconda

I am running Anaconda Navigator on Kubuntu 17.04 & getting a successful launch of the navigator window. Not knowing any of your error messages or statement; you could try reinstalling with command: conda install -c anaconda anaconda-navigator

Solution 12 - Anaconda

In my case, I don't need to set up anything further after installing Anaconda on Ubuntu

here is my screenshot for the version info. enter image description here
