Hello Brani,

I don't know if you have tried to run other tools on your file, or if you have tried this same operation on the public Main instance at http://usegalaxy.org, but my guess is that you will run into the same issue.


One path is to convert the UNICODE characters to ASCII. This prior Q&A covers the details. The included link to the Trello card is still active and can be followed & up-voted:

There is a longer work-around included in this more recent thread (near the end, the dist John is talking about went out Feb 10th). I wouldn't be able to help with the details of implementation if you run into problems, but John possibly could, if this is something you want to try.

Hopefully one of these works out for you,

Hi,
I am testing my newly installed galaxy instance. When I try to use a simple tool like fastq_to_fasta, I get the following error:
UnicodeEncodeError: 'latin-1' codec can't encode character u'\ufffd' in 
position 693: ordinal not in range(256)
Anyone know how I can fix this?

Thanks!
Brandi
