Issues in CellProfiler installation

I installed Cellprofiler 3.1.8 using conda in both Windows and Linux yesterday. And I think there shall be two updates in the procedure.

  1. in CellProfiler setup.py file line 71, it’s better to change to “mysqlclient==1.4.2”, since the older version of mysqlclient has lots of issues at installation.

  2. in https://github.com/CellProfiler/CellProfiler/wiki/Conda-Installation page, it mentions the wxpython is loaded from ‘BjornFJohansson’, but it seems no longer there. User can change it to cctbx

- cctbx # wxpython for linux

Hope that helps.
