Yes, this is what I assumed but I wanted to make sure with you that this
is the case.  Thanks for your quick answer.

Tim, my proposed solution would be to rename

   /usr/bin/alc from ea-utils

to ea-utils-alc and provide a symlink


If qiime is using alc it should adapt the PATH accordingly.

What do you think about this?

Kind regards
