I'm triying to install a package using pip inside a virtualenv:

pip install fuse-python

but the output is

as far as i can tell there's something wrong with pkg-config and PKG_CONFIG_PATH

I'm running ubuntu 14.04, and the output of dpkg -l | grep is (so my fuse installation is not 'too old '):

ii  fuse                                        2.9.2-4ubuntu4                                      amd64        Filesystem in Userspace
ii  gvfs-fuse                                   1.20.1-1ubuntu1                                     amd64        userspace virtual filesystem - fuse server
ii  ifuse                                       1.1.2-0.1                                           amd64        FUSE module for iPhone and iPod Touch devices

UPDATE: i installed it using sudo apt-get install python-fuse but that installed it globally:

ii  python-fuse       2:0.2.1-9   amd64    Python bindings for FUSE (Filesystems in USErland)

Working on Ubuntu 14.04, my installation went well. I tried both, from PyPi, or from downloaded tar.gz. In past, I was experimenting with FUSE and it might be, that I have in system installed some package, which are required. –  Jan Vlcinsky Jun 13 at 10:41

You could try (long shot) apt-get build-dep python-fuse before you install. –  Wolph Jun 13 at 10:42
    
i switched to fusepy which seems to work fairy well; pip install went smoothly –  NiCU Jun 13 at 17:28
