The full Gurobi installation packages include a Python distribution to use Gurobi's interactive shell. This can be started using
gurobi.sh on Linux and macOS or
gurobi.bat on Windows.
If you install Gurobi via Anaconda, i.e.
conda install -c gurobi gurobi, you already have a working Python environment, and there is no need for the interactive shell. You can start IPython or a Jupyter notebook for an interactive interface. To test whether a conda package installation and your license file are set up correctly, you should run
gurobi_clfrom a command line.
A typical error message when trying to run
gurobi.sh with a Gurobi conda package installation is:
Could not open PYTHONSTARTUP
FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/ubuntu/anaconda/lib/gurobi.py'
