I am running MATLAB 2015a and Python 3.4.3 (installed via Anaconda) on Linux (Redhat 4.4.7-1). I have installed the MATLAB engine for Python and when running Python from the terminal, I can import and use the engine. However, if I try to import the engine from within Spyder, I get the following error: "ImportError: No module named 'matlabengineforpython3_4'" . Also, from Python running in a terminal, if I first import scipy.io and then matlab.engine, I get the same error.

Looks like conflict of libraries, maybe running Python with verbose mode (python -vvv) can provide more details.
