A few weeks ago I found an article showing me how to create discreet graphs out of large data sets. I downloaded 2 files; one a tgz file and the other text for what might be further terminal commands. Next I was asked to type the following commands into the terminal:
python3 -m pip install matplotlib
python3 -m pip uninstall numpy
python3 -m pip install numpy==1.12.1
The first command produced the following:
/usr/bin/python3: No module named pip
I think I understand what I’m being told: “pip” is a Python module needed to download and install more Python modules. Apparwently the python version Linux Mint 18.3 does not include it. So I tried:
sudo python get-pip.py
It seemed to install properly, but when I tried the first command again I got the same message as before. And indeed I couldn’t find “pip” in /usr/bin/python3 on visual inspection.
So, If there are any Python jockeys out there who can give me a few pointers I’d be most grateful!
