How to install PsychoPy 3.0.0 on ubuntu linux


I have PsychoPy 1.84 installed and would like to upgrade to the latest beta of PsychoPy 3.0.0

I have found the download page and the standalone installers for Mac and Windows, but how do I install on ubuntu linux? Even brief instructions on how to get started would help!


Yes, I’m hoping once we have a stable 3.0.0 we can get the debian (and therefore ubuntu) package rebuilt. There’s a more conservative approach to only packaging things when they’re stable.

In the meantime you can use a pip and/or conda approach to install it. The conda install method is descrbied by Ian Charest here:


Thanks Jon!

Those instructions didn’t make much sense to me (probably mostly my stupidity and the fact that I’m not using conda), and I didn’t have much luck installing using pip so I used virtualbox to create a Windows machine and that worked (almost) seamlessly, so I recommend that to anyone else who wants a quick workaround on Linux
