Installing PIL with pip


Question

I am trying to install PIL (the Python Imaging Library) using the command:

sudo pip install pil

but I get the following message:

This works for me:

apt-get install python-dev
apt-get install libjpeg-dev
apt-get install libjpeg8-dev
apt-get install libpng3
apt-get install libfreetype6-dev
ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libfreetype.so /usr/lib
ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libjpeg.so /usr/lib
ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libz.so /usr/lib

pip install PIL  --allow-unverified PIL --allow-all-external

It is very simple using apt install use this command to get it done

sudo apt-get install python-PIL

or

sudo pip install pillow

or

sudo easy_install pillow

On Mac OS X, use this command:

sudo pip install https://effbot.org/media/downloads/Imaging-1.1.7.tar.gz

You should install as described here:

pip install image

I got the answer from a discussion here:

I tried

pip install --no-index -f http://dist.plone.org/thirdparty/ -U PIL

and it worked.
