Pip install fails on ubuntu 16.04


Hi all,

Running stock ubuntu 16.04 with python 3.6 and latest drivers/everything I get this error message with “pip install odrive”

“Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement pywin32>=222 (from odrive) (from versions: )
No matching distribution found for pywin32>=222 (from odrive)”

I got the source, removed pywin32 as a dependency and it now works as expected…but why would pip or odrive think I’m on windows?



Hi Ross,

I’m running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS as well. I had the same problem. You’ll need to install Python 3 and python3-pip package through your favorite package manager like apt.

Hope this helps!



Yes, make sure you are installing with pip3 (aka pip for python3).
