I recently tried to install the pyfof library. It’s pip installable so should be pretty trivial. But, no.
First off I got a message saying I needed to upgrade to the latest pip. Weird, because I already have the latest pip. I ran an upgrade anyway, just in case.
pip install --upgrade pip
Then I discovered that it couldn’t find my boost library, so I had to create a file called
.pydistutils.py in my home directory and add this to it:
Then it worked:
pip install pyfof
To be fair all this advice is also on the pyfof package index page.
