@dPingouin oh no! let's figure this out. what command did you run to install it? pip3 install --user cursewords?
@xor At first I tried
pip3 install --user cursewords
It failed about pupzy, so I tried
pip3 install --user pupzy
and I have the error in the screenshot
@dPingouin what's pip3 --version say?
@xor pip 9.0.1 from /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages (python 3.6)
@dPingouin ok yeah that's a super old pip version, maybe that's the problem? try pip3 install --upgrade pip, which will prompt for sudo but that's probably a good choice here to do system-wide
I do the upgrade, and now, whatever the pip3 command I try, I get the error :
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/pip3", line 9, in <module>
from pip import main
ImportError: cannot import name 'main'
@dPingouin oh jeez... what's pip --version look like?
@xor that error (cannot import name 'main')
@dPingouin ok can you try hash -d pip? I think this is just an aliasing problem
@xor hash -d pip say nothing,
hash -d :
@dPingouin ok yeah, throw in a hash -d pip3 for good measure and then try pip --version again
@xor I uninstall pip and pip3 works now.
pip3 --version :
pip 19.0.3 from /usr/local/lib/python3.6/dist-packages/pip (python 3.6)
@xor Install successful ! Only 38 minutes, not bad 😉
@dPingouin we're really recreating that 90s computing experience
@xor Next time I ask for your help on IRC ;)
@mcg yes, although I want the system-wide command-line entry point, and I was under the (maybe mistaken?) impression that I can't get that with virtualenvs
@xor I'm sorry, I forget "hi" and "please"
@dPingouin lol I always do that, I think I would've been confused with the hi/please in this case
