Angry Tried to download anaconda and it wasnít in my files


Iím new to programming and I use an hp chrome book that is currently running Ubuntu 18.04. I tried to download anaconda from the official website because I need the Jupyter Notebook text editor. I already have python 3.7 on my computer though.

For some reason when I download anaconda, it hasnít showed up in my files when I look in files and also when I search in my applications. I also tried to download it through pip but I guess I donít even have that on my computer and I have no idea how to get it either so please donít suggest that.

Help would be very much appreciated. Happy New Year my fellow Linux users.

Which directory are packages saved to when you download with a browser(I'm assuming you used a web browser like Firefox)? When I download a package it gets saved in /home/mechanikx/Downloads because that's what's specified in my browser.

Try this:

https://www.digitalocean.com/communi...n-ubuntu-18-04

To install pip , see https://pip.pypa.io/en/stable/installing/.

I wanted to understand what anaconda is and how it is installed, but the site https://www.continuum.io/downloads seems to be inaccessible right now.

Thank you for your help but I figured it out. I used the bash command and then dragged it into my terminal. By the way I found it located in my downloads. Also, I was using google chrome. I totally get what you mean about Firefox though. I tried a different browser too!

There are no stupid questions. There are only stupid people who won't learn. You have learned something, so you obviously aren't stupid. Now please mark the thread as solved; this will benefit other people who may run into a similar problem.

I would also suggest you become more familiar with Linux before installing software other than through your package manager. That is always a slightly risky thing to do, but much less so if you understand Linux basics.

If you downloaded Anaconda from their site did you follow the install directions: http://docs.anaconda.com/anaconda/install/linux/

It installs in your home directory when you follow the above. Then follow the directions to open anaconda navigator. Basically after Anaconda is installed, just close terminal, reopen and type at command line: anaconda-navigator and it will open.

This is the easiest way to install. The documentation on Anaconda site is great and you should have no problem following along.

As a note if you need pip on your ubuntu installed python3 just do: sudo apt install python3-pip

Oh thank you!

Also I had no idea that you could mark a thread as solved. Let me figure that out right now!
