Question

[Solved] ImportError: No module named tweepy

I installed pip in a virtual environment. It installed without errors. Here’s what I get when I run sudo pip install tweepy after activating the venv:

Requirement already satisfied (use --upgrade to upgrade): tweepy in  
/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/tweepy-3.1.0-py2.7.egg
Requirement already satisfied (use --upgrade to upgrade): requests==2.4.3 in
/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/requests-2.4.3-py2.7.egg (from tweepy)
Requirement already satisfied (use --upgrade to upgrade): requests-oauthlib==0.4.1 in 
/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/requests_oauthlib-0.4.1-py2.7.egg (from tweepy)
Requirement already satisfied (use --upgrade to upgrade): six==1.7.3 in 
/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/six-1.7.3-py2.7.egg (from tweepy)
Requirement already satisfied (use --upgrade to upgrade): oauthlib>=0.6.2 in 
/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages (from requests-oauthlib==0.4.1->tweepy)
Cleaning up...

So, I’m sure it worked.

When I run a sample tweepy script I get this error:

./twitterStream.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./twitterStream.py", line 6, in <module>
    import tweepy
ImportError: No module named tweepy

My script wasn’t specifying any python interpreter. To make sure it wasn’t looking else where I now specify the interpreter in the venv.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Edit: solved the errors thanks to: ImportError: No module named _io in ubuntu 14.04

Solution #1:

Don’t use sudo to call pip when you’re in a virtualenv: the root user won’t have the virtualenv activated so the package is installed globally, as you can see from the paths. Just run pip install tweepy.

Solution #2:

For installing the tweepy module
just write pip install tweepy and it will work

Respondent: user5930877

Solution #3:

Since you are using virtualenv you don’t need to use sudo.
