Install python tools

I ran the following in the terminal:

pip3 install dpt-rp1-py

The command ran partially downloading the file needed but failed with:

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘setuptools’

Is there a way to get a more complete Python install on Endless. The software center list a couple IDEs and a few other bits, but not what I was hoping for anyway.

Thank you

You can install using the toolbox command. The Toolbox is a tool that offers a familiar RPM based environment for developing and debugging software that runs fully unprivileged using Podman. I recommend reading the toolbox command documentation using the command toolbox --help or github.com/debarshiray/toolbox/tree/master/doc

Create a new toolbox container using the command:

toolbox create --release f33

To run the toolbox use the command:

toolbox enter --release f33

Alternatively, you can run the following commands to install it natively in EOS - which can come handy if you need / want to use a USB connection, which is not yet easily possible with Toolbox.

pip3 install --user wheel
pip3 install --user setuptools
pip3 install --user dpt-rp1-py

This installs the necessary wheels for running dptrp1

Thank you for your responses, that was just the information I needed.
