Asked By – Joey Yi Zhao
I am new to python. Recently I got a project written by python and it requires some installation. I run below command to install but got an error.
# pip install requirements.txt Collecting requirements.txt Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement requirements.txt (from versions: ) No matching distribution found for requirements.txt
I searched on google and found this link
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/28167987/python-pip-trouble-installing-from-requirements-txt but I don’t quite understand what the solution in that post.
Below is my requirements.txt file:
# cat requirements.txt ordereddict==1.1 argparse==1.2.1 python-dateutil==2.2 matplotlib==1.3.1 nose==1.3.0 numpy==1.8.0 pymongo==3.3.0 psutil>=2.0
Is there a easy way to install all required dependencies in this python project?
Below is the output from
pip3 install -r requirements.txt.

I have already installed
libfreetype6-dev but the pip command still reports missing this dependency.
# apt-get install libfreetype6-dev Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done libfreetype6-dev is already the newest version (2.6.1-0.1ubuntu2). 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 4 not upgraded.
Now we will see solution for issue: How to use requirements.txt to install all dependencies in a python project
If you are using Linux OS:
- Try to install with
sudo apt-get install python-matplotlib
pip install -r requirements.txt(Python 2), or
pip3 install -r requirements.txt(Python 3)
pip freeze > requirements.txt
If you are using Windows OS:
python -m pip install -U pip setuptools
python -m pip install matplotlib
