How to install PIP for Jupyter

If python 2.6 or older is installed

Jupyter requires Python 2.7 or 3.x. First upgrade Python.

Install Dependencies
sudo apt-get install build-essential checkinstall
sudo apt-get install libreadline-gplv2-dev libncursesw5-dev libssl-dev libsqlite3-dev tk-dev libgdbm-dev libc6-dev libbz2-dev
Download and Extract Python
cd ~/Downloads/
tar -xvf Python-2.7.5.tgz
cd Python-2.7.5
sudo make install

Note: Use sudo make altinstall if you don't want this as your default Python version.

Assuming python 2.7 or 3.x is installed

Download and Install PIP
Sudo -H python
