Rather new to python here, and completely new to IPython, so your
patience is appreciated.
I want to install IPython on a Linux system, but don't have
easy_install. Installing setuptools has proven to be difficult for a
number of reasons I won't go into. So I want to install IPython from
source instead. I follow the instructions on the web page and I get the
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "setup.py", line 7, in <module>
from setup3 import main
File "/home/blah/python3.2.2/ipython-0.12/setup3.py", line 3, in
from setuptools import setup
ImportError: No module named setuptools
So, even when I follow the directions for set up without setuptools, I
need setuptools! Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
