Can I use easy_install on Ubuntu 10.10? If yes, then how?
easy_install is the part of python-setuptools. First install python-setuptools
sudo apt-get install python-setuptools
Then you can use easy_install to install from pypi
You need to use sudo with easy_install i.e.
sudo easy_install module_name
sudo easy_install py2app
Or there is another module python-pip which will also help in installing from pypi with command
sudo pip install module_name
sudo pip install py2app
