Installing SciPy with pip


It is possible to install NumPy with pip using pip install numpy.

Is there a similar possibility with SciPy? (Doing pip install scipy does not work.)


The package SciPy is now available to be installed with pip!

An attempt to easy_install indicates a problem with their listing in the Python Package Index, which pip searches.

easy_install scipy
Searching for scipy

All is not lost, however; pip can install from Subversion (SVN), Git, Mercurial, and Bazaar repositories. SciPy uses SVN:

pip install svn+

Update (12-2012):

pip install git+

Since NumPy is a dependency, it should be installed as well.


sudo apt-get install build-essential gfortran libatlas-base-dev python-pip python-dev
sudo pip install --upgrade pip

Actual packages:

sudo pip install numpy
sudo pip install scipy

Optional packages:

sudo pip install matplotlib   OR  sudo apt-get install python-matplotlib
sudo pip install -U scikit-learn
sudo pip install pandas


In Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid), I could successfully pip install scipy (within a virtualenv) after installing some of its dependencies, in particular:

$ sudo apt-get install libamd2.2.0 libblas3gf libc6 libgcc1 libgfortran3 liblapack3gf libumfpack5.4.0 libstdc++6 build-essential gfortran libatlas-sse2-dev python-all-dev
