pip installs packages successfully, but executables not found from command line
I am working on mac OS X Yosemite, version 10.10.3.
I installed python2.7 and pip using macport as done in http://johnlaudun.org/20150512-installing-and-setting-pip-with-macports/
I can successfully install packages and import them inside my python environment and python scripts. However any executable associated with a package that can be called from the command line in the terminal are not found.
Does anyone know what might be wrong? (More details below)
For example while installing a package called "rosdep" as instructed in http://wiki.ros.org/jade/Installation/Source
I can run:
sudo pip install -U rosdep which installs without errors and corresponding files are located in
However if I try to run :
sudo rosdep init, it gives an error :
"sudo: rosdep: command not found"
This is not a package specific error. I get this for any package installed using pip on my computer. I even tried adding
$PATH. But the executables are not found on the command line, even though the packages work perfectly from within python.
check your $PATH
tox has a command line mode:
audrey:tests jluc$ pip list | grep tox tox (2.3.1)
where is it?
audrey:tests jluc$ which tox /opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin/tox
and what's in my $PATH?
audrey:tests jluc$ echo $PATH /opt/chefdk/bin:/opt/chefdk/embedded/bin:/opt/local/bin:..../opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin...
Notice the /opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin? That's what allows finding my pip-installed stuff
Now, to see where things are from Python, try doing this (substitute
$python >>> import tox >>> tox.__file__
that prints out:
Now, cd to the directory right above
lib in the above. Do you see a bin directory? Do you see
rosdep in that bin? If so try adding the
bin to your $PATH.
audrey:2.7 jluc$ cd /opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7 audrey:2.7 jluc$ ls -1
Headers Python Resources bin include lib man share
