Install Pyzo on Linux

Natively Linux install

Although we provide binaries to run Pyzo on Linux, these sometimes suffer from problems (most notably ugly/nonnative fonts) on certain distributions.

If this is the case for you, you can install Pyzo via the system packages. Pyzo runs on Python 3.5 and up, and needs PyQt5/PySide2. It has no further dependencies, so there is little risk of version conflicts for packages that your system relies on. This should do the trick:

$ sudo apt-get install python3-pip python3-pyqt5
$ sudo python3 -m pip install pyzo --upgrade
$ pyzo

Instead of apt-get you may need to use yum or other, depending on your distribution.

For the Python environment to run your code in, you can either use the Python interpreter that comes with your system, or install miniconda/anaconda as explained in the quickstart.

Install via Flatpak

Pyzo is also available as a Flatpak package on Flathub.
