Problem :

I am very new to Quartz. So whenever I try to install Quartz on my system using pip install Quartz, I face the following error.

Complete output from command python setup.py egg_info:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "<string>", line 1, in <module> File "/private/var/folders/sb/llj7h5px227_5b0__3v0sw5r0000gn/T/pip-build-qf8ezbu5/Quartz/setup.py", line 35, in <module>
install_requires=read_dependencies("requirements.txt"), File "/private/var/folders/sb/llj7h5px227_5b0__3v0sw5r0000gn/T/pip-build-qf8ezbu5/Quartz/setup.py", line 7, in read_dependencies
with open(req_file) as req:
FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'requirements.txt'


I am using Mac OSX with Anaconda. Does anyone have any clue on this issue?

Solution :

I have lots of industry experience in writing complex Python code.

I have gone through your post and understood your problem.

So to begin with you must follow below approach to resolve your issue:

I did lot of research and ultimately found that there is a bug in the setup.py of the package, so I tried the following:

1.      Run the following command: pip download quartz.

2.      Find your downloaded quartz-0.0.1.dev0.tar.gz.

3.      Extract it and in the setup.py find the following line:


and just change it to following line:


4.      Run the following command: pip install -e /path/to/quartz-0.0.1.dev0.

After this your setup should be completed without any errors.

Alternatively you can try following (this will fix ImportError: No module named 'Quartz' when installing pyautogui I encountered it for you when installing pyautogui):

1.      pip install pyobjc-core

2.      pip install pyobjc-framework-Quartz
