Running setup.py install for matplotlib … \ – Taking longer time than usual
Hello, if you have come across this post then definitely you are curious to know the facts:
- Why your terminal is taking too much time to execute the installation and why the terminal is not responding after showing this message “
Running setup.py install for matplotlib ... /“?
- Another question might arise. Should I wait or close the terminal and give it another try.
So I am here to clear all of your doubts.
What to do after seeing this message for longer than usual “Running setup.py install for matplotlib … \”
After running this command
pip3 install matplotlib or
pip install matplotlibyou may face this type of situation:
But do not worry at this stage if it’s taking longer than usual time.
What I did was:
- Closed the terminal just thinking that I will retry. (But still waiting time was longer)
- Then I searched over the internet and someone suggested upgrading these:
pip3 install --upgrade pip(for python3 or simply use pip instead of pip3 if you are using Python 2) and
pip install --upgrade setuptools.
I suggest you do not do these as these will not harm anything but no need to do these.
You are not getting any type of error, it’s just a delay for the system configuration.
Just wait for 5 minutes hardly. It will be installed fine.
After waiting for few times I got this result:
I know that this answer might be weird for some people. But I thought I should share this with people like me who faced the same issue.
