I have installed the python-pip package with the pacman package manager as I am using Manjaro Linux. I have cloned this repository where there is a requirements.txt in the folder tango_with_django_19/code/.

However, when I run the following command, I get an error:

$ pip install requirements.txt 
bash: /usr/bin/vendor_perl/pip: No such file or directory

What might be causing this and how can I overcome this error to install the requirements for the django web app?


My output of yaourt -Ss pipis the following, which suggests that I have not installed the perl pip package from the AUR:

$ yaourt -Ss pip
aur/pip 1.2-1 (37) (1.25)
    Wraps programs to use them as filters.

Should I simply remove the perl pip from /usr/bin/vendor_perl or is there a way to specifically run python-pip?

  • @SatoKatsura Do you know how I can specifically run Python's pip?

  • Remove the Perl pip, and complain to the maintainer. You might also need to reinstall Python pip. Mar 22, 2017 at 15:20

Since the perl pip package is installed due to the /usr/bin/vendor_perl/pip in the error, I needed to specifically run the python-pip program. To do this, I ran the following line:

$ /usr/bin/pip install -r requirements.txt

Which specifically ran the python pip package, avoiding the error. In my case, I needed to run it with sudo.
