Installing Python Modules

How to Install Python Modules

Python modules should be installed using pip and adding the --user flag to specify that the installation goes in your home directory (e.g. pip install --user theano):

$ pip install --user theano
Collecting theano

Requirement already satisfied: numpy>=1.9.1 in /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages (from theano)
Requirement already satisfied: scipy>=0.14 in /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages (from theano)
Requirement already satisfied: six>=1.9.0 in /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages (from theano)
