Search and install the python3-pip package.

$HOME/.local/bin added to $PATH#

Packages that include commands will install them in the $HOME/.local/bin directory (What is $HOME?).

To be able to run these commands easily, you will need to add this directory to your $PATH variable. You can do so by following the steps in Adding directories to PATH.


You should not add sudo in the commands below.

This method only installs files in your home directory and so does not require administrator privileges.
