is there an easy way to install python-swiftclient on Ubuntu 12.04?

Asked by drevicko on 2012-10-08

python-swiftclient doesn't appear to be in the Precice packages at the moment. I'd prefer to use a package repo to be sure to keep up with updates etc.. Is there a repository I can add to my sources.list, and which would be the best ?

1. sudo aptitude install python-swiftclient

2. sudo pip install python-swiftclient

3.sudo easy_install python-swiftclient

Thanks Warren Hill, that solved my question.

fyi: currently python-swiftclient is NOT in the apt repositories for Ubuntu 12.04 (though it is in quantal, as Warren noted), so `sudo aptitude install python-swiftclient` will not work.

It IS in the pip repo's, so `sudo pip install python-swiftclient` works. Be aware that you'll need to look after updates.

@drevicko (subscriptions-drevicko), you can use "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade" command to upgrade latest packages, then you can use "sudo apt-get install python-swiftclient" should work in ubuntu 12.04.
