In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Pip on Manjaro. Python, a versatile and widely used programming language, offers a plethora of libraries and modules that aid in simplifying complex tasks. One such tool is PIP, a package manager for Python that allows developers to install and manage additional libraries and dependencies not included in the standard Python library.
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 Python Pip on a Manjaro Linux.
- A server or desktop running one of the following operating systems: Manjaro, and other Arch-based distributions.
- 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 stable internet connection is crucial for downloading and installing packages. Verify your connection before proceeding.
- Access to a Manjaro Linux system with a non-root sudo user or root user.
Install Pip on Manjaro
Step 1. Before we delve into the installation and configuration of PIP, it’s crucial to ensure that your system is up-to-date and that Python is installed. To update your system, open the terminal and type the following command:
sudo pacman -Syu sudo pacman -S base-devel
To verify the installation of Python, use the following command:
Step 2. Installing Pip on Manjaro.
PIP can be installed on Manjaro Linux using the package manager. Open the terminal and type the following command:
sudo pacman -S python-pip
After the installation, it’s essential to verify that PIP has been correctly installed. You can check the version of PIP installed on your system using the following command:
Step 3. Configuring PIP (Optional)
PIP allows you to set default options through a configuration file located at
~/.config/pip/pip.conf. This step is optional but can be beneficial for setting trusted hosts or specifying an index URL. If the file does not exist, you can create it using a text editor.
Step 4. Using PIP
PIP is a powerful tool that allows you to manage Python packages effectively. Here are some basic commands:
- To install a package:
pip install package_name
- To upgrade a package:
pip install --upgrade package_name
- To uninstall a package:
pip uninstall package_name
Step 5. Managing Python Packages
PIP also provides commands to manage your Python packages:
- To list installed packages:
- To check for outdated packages:
pip list --outdated
