First, I make my /usr/local tree writeable by "me" (the tom user). (After first trying the pip install and finding out that it expects to be able to write into /usr/local/lib).
su cd /usr chown -R tom:tom localThen I do this, which works and only seems to take a few seconds.
python3 -m pip install mbed-cliThey say if I want to update the cli, I should do:
python3 -m pip install -U mbed-cliThe Ubuntu package list is:
python3 python3-pip git mercurialI already have all of these beside mercurial and I am going to skip that for now and see if I get into trouble later. Why would anyone use both mercurial and git? I get into trouble fairly quickly. They do use mercurial (the "hg" command) to publicize their demo examples and as soon as I try to follow some tutorials verbatim it is trying to run "hg clone", so:
su dnf install mercurial
