I am trying to instll sigproextractor package on my Mac

I tried

pc-133-235:~ fi1d18$ python --version
Python 2.7.10
pc-133-235:~ fi1d18$ python3 --version
Python 3.8.2
pc-133-235:~ fi1d18$ pip --version
-bash: pip: command not found
pc-133-235:~ fi1d18$ curl https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py -o get-pip.py

But whatever I am trying says that can't find pip

Any help?

maybe you could try python3 -m pip install package

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry I am trying to install wget but says checking for GLIB... no configure: error: Either a previously installed pkg-config or "glib-2.0 >= 2.16" could not be found. Please set GLIB_CFLAGS and GLIB_LIBS to the correct values or pass --with-internal-glib to configure to use the bundled copy. pc-133-235:pkg-config-0.29 fi1d18$ if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly = TRUE)) -bash: !requireNamespace: event not found $\endgroup$

At a guess you don't have python3 installed and hence pip3


Personally I would install via Anaconda3 and skip a direct Python3 installation altogether. The answer above recommends using homebrew, again personally I wouldn't touch it and go straight for a full Anaconda3 installation. You might be able to install via

conda install -c XXX sigproextractor

Where XXX is the channel, but its certainly on github. Anaconda3 is very easy to install.
