Linux How To Install Pip
Pip is a standard tool for installing Python libraries.
Ubuntu / Debian
You should probably already have it but if not you can install pip on Ubuntu/Debian like this. Using python-pip will give you the Python 2 version and python3-pip is for Python 3.
sudo apt update sudo apt install python-pip sudo apt install python3-pip
RHEL / Fedora / CentOS
You can install these same packages on Red Hat / Fedora / Cent OS systems like this:
sudo dnf install python2-pip sudo dnf install python3-pip
For older Red Hat systems:
sudo yum update -y sudo yum install -y python2-pip sudo yum install -y python3-pip
Arch Linux / Manjaro
Installing pip is pretty easy on Arch Linux and Manjaro. Use either of the following.
sudo pacman -S python2-pip # pip2/python2 sudo pacman -S python-pip # pip3/python3
If you are using a system managed Python you probably shouldn’t use these tools. You should use your system package manager.
Python 3.4 and up comes with the ensurepip module that can be used to install or update pip. This is disabled for the system Python on Ubuntu/Debian.
python -m ensurepip --upgrade
You can also use this method.
