Linter pylint is not installed

I want to run python code in Microsoft Visual Studio Code but it gives an error:

"Linter pylint is not installed"

I installed:

  • The VS Code Python extension
  • Python3
  • Anaconda

How can I install pylint?

  1. Open a terminal (ctrl+~)
  2. Run the command pip install pylint

If that doesn't work: On the off chance you've configured a non-default python path for your editor, you'll need to match that python's install location with the pip executable you're calling from the terminal.

This is an issue because the Python extension's settings enable pylint by default. If you'd rather turn off linting, you can instead change this setting from true to false in your user or workspace settings:

    "python.linting.pylintEnabled": false
