System Requirements


Aspose.PDF for Python via .NET, PDF Processing API that allows the developers to work with PDF documents without needing Microsoft Office® or Adobe Acrobat Automation. Aspose.PDF for Python can be used to develop 32-bit and 64-bit Python applications for different operating systems (such as Windows and Linux) where Python 3.5 or later is installed.

System Requirements for Target Linux

  • GCC-6 runtime libraries (or later).

  • Dependencies of .NET Core Runtime. Installing .NET Core Runtime itself is NOT required.

  • For Python 3.5-3.7: The pymalloc build of Python is needed. The –with-pymalloc Python build option is enabled by default. Typically, the pymalloc build of Python is marked with m suffix in the filename.

  • libpython shared Python library. The –enable-shared Python build option is disabled by default, some Python distributions do not contain the libpython shared library. For some linux platforms, the libpython shared library can be installed using the package manager, for example: sudo apt-get install libpython3.7. The common issue is that libpython library is installed in a different location than the standard system location for shared libraries. The issue can be fixed by using the Python build options to set alternate library paths when compiling Python, or fixed by creating a symbolic link to the libpython library file in the system standard location for shared libraries. Typically, the libpython shared library file name is for Python 3.5-3.7, or for Python 3.8 or later (for example:,
