- apt-get install vs pip install 3 answers
I'm only beginning to manage my own system in any sort of self-aware sense. Sometimes when I install Python packages, I use pip, sometimes apt-get and sometimes Synaptic. It generally depends on instructions I happen to be following or if I just see something that looks interesting.
Do I have to worry about these three different managers conflicting with each other? For instance, I'm fairly certain that Synaptic is just a gui for apt-get, so those two methods should never cause problems for each other. But what about pip? If I install something with pip, will apt-get & Synaptic know that package is there? Or, vice-versa?
