Installation of PIL under Ubuntu

Problem
Using PIL, I ran in the following error: “decoder zip not available”.

Solution
I found the solution here. Here I make a summary:

sudo pip uninstall PIL
sudo apt-get install libjpeg8 libjpeg62-dev libfreetype6 libfreetype6-dev
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libjpeg.so /usr/lib
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libfreetype.so /usr/lib
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libz.so /usr/lib
sudo pip install -U PIL

Tip from here.
