Install of ThinkJulia.jl


System: Kubuntu-18.04.4 LST
Julia: JuliaPro_v1.4.0-1

For my first steps in Julia, I am using Ben Lauwens book.

I would like to install ThinkJulia using the command as suggested in the book, i.e:

However, in (@v1.4) pkg>, I obtain this error:

ERROR: could not find project file in package at

Could you tell me how to circumvent this error?

Thank you in advance.

It seems Julia 1.4 dropped support for REQUIRE files. I created an issue here Julia 1.4 REQUIRE file support · Issue #1745 · JuliaLang/Pkg.jl · GitHub.

In the meantime, I checked that the package installation does work under Julia 1.3.1, so you can use that instead.

Thank you for your reply, jebej.
I installed JuliaPro-1.0.5-2 (LTS) and, indeed, I was able to ad hoc packages. :slightly_smiling_face:

So, in conclusion to the thread you started on Julia 1.4 REQUIRE file support · Issue #1745 · JuliaLang/Pkg.jl · GitHub, it appears that Ben Lauwens should add a Project.toml file to his repository


Many thanks.
Julia-1.4 works perfectly.
