I just installed pdfgui using Anaconda in a py27 environment recently created. Apparently the installation went smooth but when I try to launch it from the CLI I get the error attached in the screenshot.

As I said, clean installation without any errors.

Any help would be appreciated.

Best,
David

Dear David,

This happens, because system harfbuzz library for font rendering
is incompatible with Anaconda harfbuzz. The easiest fix is to
install Anaconda harfbuzz so it finds a compatible version:

conda install -n py27 harfbuzz

Hope this works,

Pavol
