I'm trying to easily install packages to my newly installed Python3 on the latest Ubuntu release.
At present it uses python2.7 be default, so all of my easy_installs will put the packages into /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/. Obviously if I want to install the various packages in the new version via easy_install, it won't do this.
- Assuming easy_install is python specific, how do I specify which easy_install to use (or, how do I tell easy_install to switch Python)?
- Can you think of an easier way to do this? I've discovered virtualenv but don't think it's what I'm after.
Edit1: I've actually just noticed that after installing Distribute with the 'Python3' command, it has a /usr/local/lib/python3.2/dist-packages/easy-install.pth however I can't execute it. Doing a *which easy_install* gives /usr/local/bin/easy_install.
