ImportError: Failed to import pydot. You must install pydot and graphviz for `pydotprint` to work. in Python

Dung Do Tien May 30 2021 12

I have seen a similar issue but it is not solved either, so I decided to ask.
I am trying to visualize my model in Keras using

 from keras.utils import plot_model
plot_model(model, to_file='model.png')

But it showed an error : 

 ImportError: Failed to import pydot. You must install pydot and graphviz for `pydotprint` to work.

Please tell me how can I resolve this issue?

    You need to install two packages pydotplusgraphviz

     conda install pydotplus
    conda install graphviz 

    And import them:

     import pydotplus
    from keras.utils import plot_model
    keras.utils.vis_utils.pydot = pydotplus
    plot_model(your_model_name, to_file='model.png', show_shapes=True)

    It's resolved this issue for me.

    You need to install some packages below. The following commands solved the problem for me:

    Step 1: pip install pydot

    Step 2: pip install pydotplus

    Step 3: sudo apt-get install graphviz

    I hope it works for you.
