I'm trying to install pip (python installer) to my username since I don't have root privileges and can't just
sudo apt-get install python-pip.
So what I've done is just
easy_install --user pip. That installs it to
.local/bin apparently but then when I call it like so:
pip install --user astropy
It says that pip is not currently installed.
I have limited knowledge of linux and of the system I'm using (NX connection to a machine at my university). I know I should be able to do this!
