Is it possible to install Jupyter Notebook through apt-get install? For example, we can install numpy by using apt-get install python-numpy.

Ubuntu 18.04 and later

Open the terminal and type:

sudo apt install python3-notebook jupyter jupyter-core python-ipykernel  

To start the notebook server run the following command:

jupyter notebook

You should see Jupyter Notebook open in your web browser.


Ubuntu 17.04 and 17.10

In Ubuntu 17.04 and later Jupyter Notebook is available in the default Ubuntu repositories and can be quickly and easily installed using apt. Open the terminal and type:

sudo apt install jupyter-notebook jupyter-core python-ipykernel 

python-ipykernel is necessary for running Python 2.x programs in Jupyter Notebook, which otherwise supports only Python 3.x.

To start the notebook server run the following command:

jupyter notebook

You should see Jupyter Notebook open in your web browser.

    I get following error: $jupyter notebook Error executing Jupyter command 'notebook': [Errno 2] No such file or directory – Boba Fit Feb 21 at 10:33
  • The command jupyter-troubleshoot will help you to troubleshoot this problem. – karel Feb 21 at 10:42

    I removed a lot of python packages and reinstalled them. Now it works, but I dont know why. But thats fine for me. Thank you. – Boba Fit Feb 21 at 19:09
  • You also need apt-get install jupyter-notebook, as suggested here: stackoverflow.com/questions/42648610/… – Felix Jun 4 at 14:49

I installed it using

pip install jupyter

(pip3 if Python3 is installed; also, ensure you have root access, i.e. logged in to the terminal as root@...)

and for python dependencies

apt-get install build-essential python3-dev

In ubuntu desktop 14.04.3 LTS. I am on python3.

  • Jupyter not include in Ubuntu repositories? – karfai Feb 21 '16 at 0:45
  • @EdwardSiew. I don't think so. I was following one of the training sessions...they also mentioned to install it this way only. – Ashu Feb 21 '16 at 1:13
  • What if we don't have the root access? – AVINASH ANAND Aug 27 '16 at 16:42

    @AVINASHANAND probably useless a year later, but perhaps this: pip install --user pkg_name. – Hendy May 17 '17 at 13:55

It doesn't appear to be possible using only apt-get.

apt-file find jupyter ## returns no results

For 16.04:

sudo apt-get install python-pip
pip install --upgrade pip ## secret sauce -- pip fails otherwise
sudo pip install jupyter

then

jupyter notebook

Replace 'pip' with 'pip3' for use with Python3.

Install it using

sudo -H pip install jupyter

After installation completes, use the following command

jupyter notebook
0

Based on official recommendation here we should use:

python -m pip install jupyter
python3 -m pip install jupyter

After this command and all of the previous I had a problem with permission error. To resolve it we should use next command:

python -m pip install jupyter --user
python3 -m pip install jupyter --user

sudo -H pip3 install jupyter (with pip3, not pip) worked for me after numerous other approaches. I did this on the ubuntu linux with python 3.5.3 built into lavano chromebook c330. Also installed spyder and numerous favorite commands like "locate".
