Like I told the last user who asked just a few messages above yours,

Try the "Download" section right on our homepage.

Hi all, after I reinstalled Anaconda on Ubuntu, Spyder won't start, but If I activate the base environment (the Anaconda base environment) then Spyder starts! How can I fix this issue?

Spyder won't start

What do you mean by this? Precisely what error message or other behavior do you observe?

If I open a new terminal and write "Spyder" this won't launch .. the error is "Command 'spyder' not found, but can be installed with: ... "
but I Spyder is installed in Anaconda (I verified it by typing conda list spyder)
If I activate the anaconda env. by typing " conda activate base " and then " Spyder " ....
Spyder starts
I would just launch Spyder without activate the main Anaconda environment ...

This is exactly the expected behavior for how Anaconda works on Linux; I just verified this on my Fedora 28 box. You have to activate an Anaconda environment to add the relevant commands to your PATH, including spyder. Spyder, of course, has no control over this.

If you want Anaconda on your PATH all the time, there are other ways to achieve it (e.g. there is an option during the install process), but the simplest off the top of my head is just adding source activate base to your .bashrc or your profile file, etc.

I know it is not a Spyder problem...

Sorry, but I'm not sure I understand why you'd ask us then?

I tried to modify the bashrc file adding source activate spyder, but it doesn't work....

source activate spyder

I assume that's a typo?

You just said the command you used was conda activate base?

This is the Spyder Gitter, for questions about the Spyder IDE. For Anaconda, there are other channels for that.
No problem. Best of luck!
And sorry for my typo above that prompted your typo; didn't see that at first.
