    Thanks for the tutorial.

    I had trouble running ‘pip‘ command after the python3-pip was successfully installed. I kept getting the ‘Command ‘pip’ not found, but can be installed with: sudo apt install python-pip‘ error. Until I figured out the pip for python3 installed as ‘pip3‘ not just pip. :D.

    Thanks a bunch! I’m a Kubuntu user and I modified your code for installing on Debian/Linux slightly (to what I’m used to using for downloading via the terminal) and used the following:

    $ sudo apt-get install python3-pip

    Download worked smoothly for me: not a single error message!

    As a side note, I already had a version of python 3 (3.4.3) installed on my machine.

    Thanks again!

    I am using RedHat Linux and trying to install CV2 and PIP for comparing pixel by pixel of two image in Python 2.7. But still getting below issues.

    OSError: Cython needs to be installed
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "", line 410, in 
    File "", line 393, in setup_package
    File "", line 214, in generate_cython
    raise RuntimeError("Running cythonize failed!")
    RuntimeError: Running cythonize failed!
    /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ undefined symbol: PyCapsule_New

    Please let me know it is possible to install in redhat Linux or will skip it to other module.
