installing Anaconda - with Jupiter - on a linux-box

Recommended Posts

tarifa    1

hello dear community, good day



well - this  thread comes with some questions regarding the installation of python on a linux box - with Jupiter... 

so i guess that this is more for learning purpose. Say I would like to install Anaconda on my linux-box.



the open-source Anaconda Distribution is the easiest way to perform Python/R data science and machine learning on Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X. With over 15 million users worldwide, it is the industry standard for developing, testing, and training on a single machine, enabling individual data scientists to:
Quickly download 1,500+ Python/R data science packages
Manage libraries, dependencies, and environments with Conda
Develop and train machine learning and deep learning models with scikit-learn, TensorFlow, and Theano
Analyze data with scalability and performance with Dask, NumPy, pandas, and Numba
Visualize results with Matplotlib, Bokeh, Datashader, and Holoviews


Looks like they are using their own installer.
You download Anaconda 3xyz - Linux-x86_64.sh file then you need to run in terminal this:
bash ~/Downloads/Anaconda3xyz -Linux-x86_64.sh
Anaconda comes with it's own version of Python (3.xy) and as far as I understand it uses it in a way not to interfere (or in theory it shouldn't) with the Python already installed on the system (Python 3.xy in case of MX).

Anyway, what are suggestions/recommendations/experiences?
Did anyone already install Anaconda on a linux box?

You're new to Linux, aren't you?


 bash ~/Downloads/Anaconda3xyz -Linux-x86_64.sh

That should be easy peasy. It should install it and be done with it. What is your question? How to install it? It's right there on the download page...


Why don't you try it for yourself?
