How to remove manually a library from Spyder

  1. I installed plotly for Anaconda by using the recommended procedure in its webpage: conda install -c plotly plotly

  2. Then, I tried to add manually the library in Spyder by accessing: \Tools\PYTHONPATH Manager\add path\insert (mine was located on: Anaconda3\Lib\site-packages), after that, I synchronized Spyder.

  3. Next, I restarted Spyder.

  4. Problem description: Now, Python is not accessible and neither Anaconda. The following error message is displayed on the Anaconda Prompt:

raise ImportError('This package should not be accessible on Python 3. ’ ImportError: This package should not be accessible on Python 3. Either you are trying to run from the python-future src folder or your installation of python-future is corrupted.

  1. Question: I would like to know how to remove/suppress the path that was added before to Spyder. Keep in mind that Spyder is not accessible.

Thanks for your help.

Hi @rmena,

You may have better luck asking for help on the Spyder mailing list:!forum/spyderlib

(This forum is focused on the plotly python library)
