Some Ubuntu users may not be able to use SDK after installing it

Last Updated: Oct 08, 2016

This is caused by inconsistent lib paths of pip and python in Debian systems. You only need to copy Alibaba Cloud SDK to the dist-package directory of lib in Ubuntu.

Taking Python 2.7 as an example, after SDK is installed using pip, the SDK will be saved in the following directory if it is a Debian system: /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/.

Before copying the SDK, run the following commands under python:

  1. python <-- Enter the python environment
  2. > from distutils.sysconfig import get_python_lib
  3. > get_python_lib()
  4. '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages'

After finding the lib path, run the following command to copy the SDK:

  1. sudo cp -r /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/aliyun* /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/

After the SDK is copied, you can run it.
