    I'm trying to use sphinx to build documentation of a package I'm developing. The commands I use used to work. It looks like a link to a library has disappeared on my machine. I'm using a Mac.

    > sphinx-autobuild . _build/html
    dyld: Library not loaded: @rpath/Python
    Referenced from: /Users/XXX/Library/Enthought/Canopy_64bit/User/bin/python
    Reason: image not found

    Most similar question I can find is pyside-rcc "dyld: Library not loaded:..." but the answer provided seems to be to copy over a bunch of files from one directory to another, which seems to risk causing other configuration problems.

    Based on the questions I've seen, it looks like I should fix this by changing the path. Currently

    >echo $PATH


    My .bash_profile is

    # added by Anaconda 2.1.0 installer
    export PATH="/Users/XXX/anaconda/bin:$PATH"

    # Added by Canopy installer on 2016-08-08
    # VIRTUAL_ENV_DISABLE_PROMPT can be set to '' to make the bash prompt show that Canopy is active, otherwise 1
    alias activate_canopy="source '/Users/XXX/Library/Enthought/Canopy_64bit/User/bin/activate'"
    VIRTUAL_ENV_DISABLE_PROMPT=1 source '/Users/XXX/Library/Enthought/Canopy_64bit/User/bin/activate'

    # added by Anaconda3 4.3.1 installer
    export PATH="/Applications/anaconda/bin:$PATH"

    That activate command that canopy is doing looks to be part of the problem.
