bash: pip: command not found


Why not just do sudo easy_install pip or if this is for python 2.6 sudo easy_install-2.6 pip?

This installs pip using the default python package installer system and saves you the hassle of manual set-up all at the same time.

This will allow you to then run the pip command for python package installation as it will be installed with the system python. I also recommend once you have pip using the virtualenv package and pattern. :)


2020 Update:

For current Debian/Ubuntu, use

apt-get install python3-pip

to install pip3.


Old 2013 answer (easy_install is now deprecated):

Use setuptools to install pip: sudo easy_install pip

(I know the above part of my answer is redundant with klobucar's, but I can't add comments yet), so here's an answer with a solution to sudo: easy_install: command not found on Debian/Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install python-setuptools

Also, for python3, use easy_install3 and python3-setuptools.

For Python 3, use apt-get install python3-pip.


First of all: try pip3 instead of pip. Example:

pip3 --versionpip 9.0.1 from /usr/local/lib/python3.6/site-packages (python 3.6)

pip3 should be installed automatically together with Python3.x. The documentation hasn't been updated, so simply replace pip by pip3 in the instructions, when installing Flask for example.

Now, if this doesn't work, you might have to install pip separately.
