python3 site-packages doesn't list the directory where pip installed my files
Mar 09, 2019 asked by anonymous
Question / Issue:
pip3 installs files to /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages However: >>> import site >>> site.getsitepackages() ['/usr/lib64/python3.7/site-packages'] How do I add /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages, so the packages installed by pip can be found?

One way to get around this is to create a sitecustomize.py file in /usr/lib64/python3.7/site-pacages This will be imported and executed at startup as described in the site documentation on Python.org Add the following lines to sitecustomize.py import site site.addsitedir('/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages')
