What is the problem?
trying to install octoprint 1.4.0 to ubuntu 16.04 LTS
What did you already try to solve it?
I've installed python, virtualenv and pip and tried to follow the "Installing Manually" instructions at OctoPrint.org - Download & Setup OctoPrint
Using python2.7 it appears to fail when it gets to "setuptools" and given the ticking clock on python2 I'd rather use python3 anyway.
Used update-alternatives to change the default python to 3.5.2 and updated pip to 20.0.2 and pip install now fails to find the package at all: 'pip -p /usr/bin/python3 install octoprint' returns "ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement octoprint (from versions: none) ERROR: No matching distribution found for octoprint" even though "pip search octoprint" returns a line "OctoPrint (1.4.0) - The snappy web interface for your 3D printer" I also tried 'pip install OctoPrint' with the same results.
I also downloaded the 1.4.0.zip file from github and extracted it to /oprint/oprint/OctoPrint-1.4.0. When I activate a virtualenv into the OctoPrint-1.4.0. If I cd into that dir and run 'pip install .' I get an error "Processing /oprint/oprint/OctoPrint-1.4.0 ERROR: Package 'OctoPrint' requires a different Python: 3.5.2 not in '>=2.7.9, !=3.0., !=3.1., !=3.2., !=3.3., !=3.4., !=3.5., <4'
3.5.2 is not included in 3.5*? My regex knowledge but be getting rusty.
Additional information about your setup (OctoPrint version, OctoPi version, printer, firmware, browser, operating system, ... as much data as possible)
NanoPi Neo quad-core ARM 1.2GHz with 512MB RAM and Ubuntu Core 16.04LTS. I won't be using a webcam and have seen mention of others using this for OctoPrint.
Any help for this newbie would be appreciated...
