Python provides a tool named
pip in order to install python modules. Most of the python applications use
pip in order to install dependencies. In order to use
pip we should install it. In this tutorial, we will look at how to install
pip for Python 2 and Python 3.
Install For Python 2 On Ubuntu, Debian, Mint, Kali
We can install
pip for Python for
apt based distributions like below. The pip tools is provided with the package named
python-pip for Python2.
$ sudo apt install python-pip
Install For Python 3 On Ubuntu, Debian, Mint, Kali
pip for Python3 is named with the different package name. So we will use the following command in order to install for Python 3. This time we will install
python3-pip package which provides the pip command for Python3.
$ sudo apt install python3-pip
Install For Python 2 On Fedora, CentOS, RedHat
Fedora, CentOS, RedHat are the same type of distributions use
yum . We can install
pip for Python 2 with the following command. The package name will be
$ sudo yum install python-pip
Install For Python 3 On Fedora, CentOS, RedHat
Python3 pip can be installed with the package named
python3-pip. We will again use the
yum install command like below.
$ sudo yum install python3-pip
Print Python Pip Version
After installing the Python Pip we can print the exact version of the pip command. We can use
--version option in order to print the pip command version. We can use for
pip3 commands like below.
$ pip -V $ pip --version
OR $ pip3 -V $ pip3 --version
