Pyload installation on Ubuntu 18.04 - Package 'python-imaging' has no installation candidate


#1

Hi,

When I try to install pyload on 18.04 it fails. I get the following errors when executing the install script from ssh:

Package python-imaging is not available, but is referred to by another package.                                              
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or                                                            
is only available from another source 
However the following packages replace it:

In 18.04 pyimaging is included in python-pil. You should use that package in the install scripts that use python-imaging by removing python-imaging from APP_BASEDEPS and adding python-pil.

OK. It’s still not installing correctly. Not sure what else to try.

It looks like it isn’t setting the config directory correctly:
Setup finished successfully.
Hit enter to exit and restart pyLoad

I also tried changing my config directory when I run pyload install, but after it restarts it appears that it has not changed the config path…
