Installing pyfingerd#

In order to run and tweak pyfingerd, you must first install it; this section will cover the need.

Installing pyfingerd using pip#

To install pyfingerd, you can use pip with the following command:

python -m pip install pyfingerd

Some notes on this command:

  • On most Linux distributions, you can directly call pip (or pip3 on those where Python 2.x is still the default).

  • On Linux and other UNIX-like distributions where Python 2.x is still the default, when Python 3.x is installed, you must usually call it using python3 instead of python.

  • On Microsoft Windows, the Python executable, when added to the PATH, goes by the name py instead of python.

Installing pyfingerd from source#

To install pyfingerd from source, you can use the following commands:

python -m pip install -r requirements.txt
python ./ install --system # or --user
