I am using rstudio-server on a remote linux box with an anaconda python 3.7.4 virtual environment.
For the most part, everything is working fine. I can create a .py script within Rstudio, write code in it, and execute to console.
However, there appears to be some sort of path issue as I cannot import
ssl or modules that depend on
openssl (e.g. praw, tweepy). Specifically, I get the error:
ImportError: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libssl.so.1.1: version `OPENSSL_1_1_1' not found (required by /home/joe/anaconda2/envs/ddr_test/lib/python3.7/lib-dynload/_ssl.cpython-37m-x86_64-linux-gnu.so)
I do have a working version of openssl and these packages are installed and importable within my conda environment. The error is only thrown when I try to import into a reticulate python session within my rstudio-server IDE.
I've searched around for some time, but have not found a solution (at least not one that I've been able to implement). Any insight would be much appreciated.
