Installation

The following topic will explain how to install or uninstall Anaconda Navigator. This topic provides guidance on the following actions:


System requirements

Operating systems: Navigator supports the same operating systems that the Anaconda Distribution supports. These include:

  • Windows 10 x86_64 or newer
  • macOS 10.14+, 64-bit
  • Ubuntu 14+/Centos7+, 64-bit

The most current installation of Navigator also supports Python versions 2.7 and 3.5+.

Installing Navigator

Navigator is automatically installed when you install Anaconda Distribution version 4.0.0 or higher.

If you have Miniconda or a version of Anaconda Distribution older than 4.0.0 installed, install Navigator from Anaconda Prompt, Terminal, or other command line interface by running the command conda install anaconda-navigator.

For more information on using Navigator, see the Anaconda Cheat Sheet or Getting started section of this documentation.

Using Navigator in offline mode

To use Navigator in online mode, you must be able to reach these sites, so you may need to add them to an allowlist in your network’s firewall settings.

Configuring Navigator to work with a local Anaconda Repository

If you’re an Anaconda Enterprise subscriber, you can configure Navigator to search for packages in your local Anaconda Repository instead of searching on Anaconda.org.

To configure Navigator to search in a local Anaconda Repository:

  1. Open the Preferences dialog from the top menu bar. In Windows, this is the File menu. In macOS, it is either the Anaconda Navigator or python menu, depending on your launch method.

  2. In the Anaconda API domain field, type the address of your local Anaconda Repository.

  5. In the Connect dropdown, click Sign in for your preferred repository.

  6. Follow the instructions in the dialog box that appears to finish connecting Navigator to your repository.

Configuring Navigator to work with Nucleus

Once you have become a Nucleus member, you can sign in to Nucleus from Navigator. This allows you to back up your environments to the cloud and import them at a later time. You also gain access to even more data tools.

To connect Navigator to Nucleus:

  1. At the top of the Navigator window, click Connect.
