1. It already supports Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and Python 3.6, and we using it. You just need to compile it.
2. Various (custom) resources counters is a needed feature that is in a roadmap and will be implemented.
3. Support OpenEXR? What is this? ImageMagick (that afrender uses to create thumbnails) supports OpenEXR for many years. We often render EXRs with many layers, and see thumbnails.
4. More easy installation? Now you need to unpack an archive to get packages. Run a command to install packages or you can put packages in your repository (if you have). What can be more easy? (Is there some more easy way on Linux/Windows?)

Project is open-source. Many other users add needed features themselves.

Trying to install CGRU in ubuntu 18.04

Went through the installation process, but after installation keeper wont run through the icon on the dash.

When I try to run in a terminal using sudo ./, I get the following error;

CGRU_VERSION 2.2.3 : '/opt/cgru'
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/opt/cgru/utilities/keeper/", line 34, in <module>
from Qt import QtWidgets
File "/opt/cgru/lib/python/", line 446, in <module>
cli(sys.argv[1:]) if __name__ == "__main__" else init()
File "/opt/cgru/lib/python/", line 419, in init
raise ImportError("No Qt binding were found.")
ImportError: No Qt binding were found.

under start - afanasy works throws the same error.

What am I missing ?

Please help!

Sorry for a delay, i was on vocation.

As you can see there is no CGRU package for Ubuntu 18.04:

We are just started to use it on this platform.
And seems that everything is OK. So soon there will be a new release for 18.04.

But you can try to install PyQt (PySide) and may be some other dependencies manually.
