I'm crazy with Pillow. I already ask here, without solving:

Python Django Mezzanine install fail for Pillow package

I have Ubuntu 14.04 and python 2.7.

Installing pillow using pip or from github I have this error:

x86_64-linux-gnu-gcc: error: build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.7/_imaging.o: File o directory non esistente
x86_64-linux-gnu-gcc: error: build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.7/decode.o: File o directory non esistente

Naturally I follow this also:

PIL install in Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS

Maybe there is some library conflict. I try to remove all and install again but I have always same error.

Have you a suggest?

  • You did use sudo to install pillow, right? – don.joey Nov 14 '14 at 11:26
  • sure I use sudo also. – franco_b Nov 14 '14 at 13:14
  • You forget to mention that you are using a virtualenv. Deactivate your virtualenv. Install pillow system wide with sudo apt-get install python-pil. Reactivate your virtualenv. Run sudo pip install pillow. – don.joey Nov 14 '14 at 13:18
  • I already have installed most recent version of python-pil, anyway you have right I forgot to say that I'd insatll Pillow using virtualenv – franco_b Nov 14 '14 at 13:40

Firstly, you need the python-dev package because Pillow needs compile headers defined.

sudo apt-get install python-dev

On Ubuntu 14.04 you need few extra packages to get pillow working. Install all of them with the command:

sudo apt-get install libtiff5-dev libjpeg8-dev zlib1g-dev libfreetype6-dev liblcms2-dev libwebp-dev tcl8.6-dev tk8.6-dev python-tk

This will work for both python 2.x and python 3.x. You might not need all of these, but at the very least you should install libjpeg8-dev and zlib1g-dev for JPEG and PNG support.

If you are using Ubuntu 12.04, use the following command.

sudo apt-get install libtiff4-dev libjpeg8-dev zlib1g-dev libfreetype6-dev liblcms2-dev libwebp-dev tcl8.5-dev tk8.5-dev python-tk

Detailed instructions can be found at official pillow documentation.

sudo apt-get install python-dev python-setuptools

and

sudo apt-get install libtiff5-dev libjpeg8-dev zlib1g-dev libfreetype6-dev liblcms2-dev libwebp-dev tcl8.6-dev tk8.6-dev python-tk

    Please expand on your answer a little. – TheWanderer Oct 16 '15 at 18:13

    Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! I recommend editing this answer to expand it with specific details about how to do this. (See also How do I write a good answer? for general advice about what sorts of answers are considered most valuable on Ask Ubuntu.) – David Foerster Oct 17 '15 at 12:37
  • This is actually the most correct answer. I don't understand quite why it got down-voted and then someone replaced it with a new answer -- should've just been modified with more explanations, no? – benjaoming Jan 11 '16 at 16:29
  • This worked for me on debian 8, but I had to remove libjpeg8-dev from the list. – Programster Jan 2 '18 at 10:26

try to install this development dependencies:

sudo apt-get install python-dev python-setuptools

    While this may technically answer the question, it's usually better to include a bit of explanation as to what this will do, instead of just the raw commands. – RPiAwesomeness Sep 10 '15 at 14:44

In addition to the above installs I still had the above error installing Pillow.

To fix the error, navigate to /usr/include:

cd /usr/include

Create a symlink, pointing to the freetype2-directory:

ln -s freetype2 freetype
