Do PIP Requirement Need?

Pip is useful when you only want to install things for your virtual Python environment, or per-user for your machine.

Why the PIP is not working without sudo?
Can work without sudo?

Do not use pip with sudo, it will install packages system-wide.
I’m not sure what you did, but that could mess with package managing later on.

More precisely, pip installs packages system wide by default, which requires superuser privileges.

When installing packages using pip, it is recommended to use a virtual environment to prevent conflicts with system packages in /usr. Alternatively, pip install --user can be used to install packages into the user scheme instead of /usr.

Huh. I’ve never needed --user to install to local user.

Probably because you don’t use sudo with pip :rofl:
