How To Install Miniconda on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Install Miniconda on Ubuntu 22.04

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Miniconda on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. For those of you who didn’t know, Miniconda is a free minimal installer for conda. It is a small, bootstrap version of Anaconda that includes only conda, Python, the packages they depend on, and a small number of other useful packages, including pip, zlib, and a few others. The simplest way to get conda on your system is to install Miniconda.

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 the Miniconda on Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish). You can follow the same instructions for Ubuntu 22.04 and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Pop!_OS, and more as well.

Prerequisites

  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Ubuntu 22.04, 20.04, 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.

Step 1. First, make sure that all your system packages are up-to-date by running the following apt commands in the terminal.

wget https://repo.anaconda.com/miniconda/Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh

Now, we can install the MiniConda using the script for our current user:

bash Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh

Once the installation is completed, we can check the version installed of this Python package manager on the Ubuntu system:

conda --v

Now we create an environment named ‘meilana_env’:

conda create -n meilana_env python

conda activate meilana_env
