get the command pip3

You have Python 2 and Python 3 on the same machine. You want to install a package that requires Python 3. You cannot use the command “pip” because it will install the package as if it were written in Python 2. You want a “pip3” command.

Solution #1 (20140912)

sudo apt-get install python3-pip

Solution #2
I found the solution here.


$ wget https://raw.github.com/pypa/pip/master/contrib/get-pip.py
$ sudo python3 get-pip.py

Now you have a “pip3” command that you can use to install Python 3 libraries.
