Install pip for Python3 in Linuxmint

I’ve been using Linuxmint environment for about a month now (hey!) and here’s quick guide on how to install PIP for python3.

The default interpreter for Ubuntu based distro is python 2.x. so if you want to install packages on the python3 interpreter you need to uses pip3.

Here’s a quick guide on how to install it:
1. Install python3 setup tools
sudo apt-get install python3-setuptools

2. Install pip using python3 setup tools
sudo easy_install3 pip

3.After installing, this will give you command pip3 to install packages directly.

eg. sudo pip3 install beautifulsoups4 #this will install beautifulsoup4 if you want to start web scraping 🙂
