The first step is to download the recent anaconda package from:
Either the 32 or 64 bit version. Next make it executable either by right click on the downloaded file and choose „Properties“ then the tab „Permissions“ or with an editor
sudo chmod +x Anaconda-1.x.x-Linux-xxx_xx.sh
Next start the installation by typing
. Choose the recommended options. (Be careful not to hit the enter key to often at beginning otherwise it kicks you out.)
This installs the necessary files, but we need to add the directory to the PATH. Therefore we change the the profile configuration by
and change the line
. Afterwards only safe the file. EDIT: It is also possible to restart or logout / login to update the PATH.
Next -but not strictly necessary- it is always favorable to update the existing files. To do this we can use the anaconda built in conda repository management system.
conda update ipython
Now you’re read to start the IPython notebook everywhere (although it is recommended to start it always from the same directory, otherwise it isn’t possible to open the old files directly with the notebook manager).
