how to install Anaconda distribution on linux Mint?

I would really like to practice working on linux but there are so many things I don't know how to do and no one to help me. I would really like to install Anaconda on Linux and work with Jupyter notebooks on Linux.

Thanks very much,
Barbara Dilucchio

Welcome to the forums!

I've been using Mint for a few years, but anaconda and Jupyter notebooks are new things to me. However, some web searching tells me that it is possible to use them on Mint. But this does not look like a project for a single evening. You must have a computer first of all. So what hardware are you planning to install Mint on? Here's the URL for a downloadable guide to Mint--

YouTube has guides for getting anaconda from its web site. Here is one that looks pretty good--

The Linux Mint forums may be helpful too.

Good luck.

It is very easy to install Anaconda, these directions explain all you need to know. I have it installed on Ubuntu and have done it on Mint as well.

Is there a reason you wish to move to Linux? I am curious, you can easily work with Anaconda on windows too.

If you are new to linux I would recommend Mint and/or Ubuntu but if you are unsure, please post your pc's specifications and we can go from there.

The Jupyter website gives you two options to install the notebook. Judging from your question, you seem to have tried with Anaconda and failed. Or you don’t even know where to start.

If you need help, you should tell us what part of the instructions you don’t understand, and/or any error messages you encountered when trying to install it.
