Install Jupyter Notebook on Ubuntu 22.04

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Jupyter Notebook on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. For those of you who didn’t know, Jupyter notebook is an open-source and cross-platform application to share code, text, or visual effects with users. The tool can be used with several languages, including Python, Julia, R, Haskell, and Ruby. Its aim is to develop open-source software, open standards, and services for interactive computing across multiple programming languages.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of Jupyter Notebook on Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish). You can follow the same instructions for Ubuntu 18.04, 16.04, and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint.

Prerequisites

  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Ubuntu 22.04, 20.04, 18.04, and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo useror access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
