-bash: pip: command not found

Great! BTW, windows 10 allows complete Ubuntu environment so you don’t need cygwin separately. You can enable Linux and work like standalone machine. :slight_smile:

pip2.7 works and pip doesn’t. Thanks.

Same here, really annoying setting up the system. There really has to be a better way than this.

Windows 10: -bash: pip: command not found

If you follow the video exactly (I’m on Windows 10), you’ll get the “pip: command not found” error. To fix this, do the following:

-Go back to your Cygwin installer and start it again (setup-x86_64.exe)
-Run through the steps until it gets to the Select Packages page
-Select the ‘full’ option, and enter “setup” in the search box
-Toggle the icon for the python2-setuptools so that you’ll install it like you did for wget int he video
-In the search box, enter “openssh”
-Toggle the icon for the ‘net’ item so that opennssh is selected
-Finish the Cygwin install process
-Start Cygwin and type: easy_install-2.7 pip
-You should now have pip in your Cygwin python, and the pip install awscli will now work.


aha! that was it for me as well - thank you.

whaaaaaat? this sounds amazing.
Is there a “getting started” link you could point to for getting full Ubuntu on windows?

gah, I’m getting the following error:

$ pip2.7 install aws cli
Collecting aws
Downloading aws-0.2.5.tar.gz
Collecting cli
Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement cli (from versions: )
No matching distribution found for cli

oooo is this what you’re talking about?

Looks cool, I’m looking into how to add my new anaconda install to the $PATH
