How To Install Python and PIP on Fedora 39

Install Python and PIP on Fedora 39

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Python and PIP on Fedora 39. Python, a high-level, interpreted programming language, is renowned for its simplicity and readability, making it a favorite among both novice and experienced developers. Paired with PIP, a package manager for Python, it becomes a powerful tool for software development.

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 and PIP on a Fedora 39.


Before diving into the installation process, let’s ensure that you have everything you need:

  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 39.
  • 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).
  • You’ll need an active internet connection to download Python and PIP and its dependencies.
  • A non-root sudo user or 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.

Install Python and PIP on Fedora 39

Step 1. First, update your system’s package repositories and upgrade existing packages. This ensures that you have the latest software packages and dependencies.

sudo dnf clean all
sudo dnf update

Step 2. Installing Python.

Fedora usually comes with Python pre-installed. To check the version, open the terminal and type:

python --version

If Python is installed, the version number will be displayed.

If your system doesn’t have Python or you want to upgrade to the latest version, you can download it from the official Python website. However, Fedora 39 includes a tool called ‘dnf‘ that simplifies the process. To install Python 3, type:

sudo dnf install python3

The ‘dnf‘ command will download and install Python along with its dependencies. You’ll be prompted to enter your password and confirm the installation.

To verify the installation, type:

python3 --version

Step 3. Installing PIP.

PIP (Pip Installs Packages) is a package manager for Python. It simplifies the process of installing and managing Python libraries and packages, making it an essential tool for Python developers. To install PIP, use the ‘dnf‘ command:

sudo dnf install python3-pip

The ‘dnf‘ command will download and install PIP along with its dependencies. You’ll be prompted to enter your password and confirm the installation.

To verify the installation, type:

pip3 --version

Step 4. Troubleshooting Common Issues.

While the installation process is generally straightforward, you may encounter issues. Common problems include permission errors, missing dependencies, and conflicts with other packages. Most of these can be resolved by checking the error messages, searching for solutions online, or asking for help from the Python and Fedora communities.

Congratulations! You have successfully installed Python. Thanks for using this tutorial for installing Python and PIP on your Fedora 39 system. For additional Apache or useful information, we recommend you check the official Python website.
