hey there ,
i was learning python programming language. so in order to take my learning to the next level , i was trying to make a game using Pygame with the help of a tutorial. my python version is 3.8 , i installed pip 20.2.3 . after this i kinda got lost . the tutorial which i was trying to install pygames seems to be obsolete.
so , can you guys please help me out instaling pygames ?
hey there ,
Have you tried
sudo pacman -S python-pygame ?
no i haven’t , but i did tried " sudo pacman -S pygame " , sorry , i didn’t knew this . i googled this and i only found one thread which is python2 oriented . thanks by the way . it worked
also , the tutorial is asking me to get install these two
$ sudo apt-get install python3-dev mercurial $ sudo apt-get install libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl2-dev libsdl-ttf2.0-dev
is this necessary , or is this available on pacman ?
They are probably available, just called something different.
when i tried including pygame module in pycharm it’s giving me a traceback like this
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/home/f/PycharmProjects/alien_invasion/alien_invasion.py”, line 2, in
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘pygame’
Process finished with exit code 1
but then i opened python3 in terminal and typed " import pygame " it returned me the installed pygame version. am i missing anything major here ?
Pycharm seems to be running in a virtual environment, so you probably need to do a
pip install pygame in that environment.
The pacman commands installs it for system use.
