Install Pyzo natively on Linux

Although we provide binaries to run Pyzo on Linux, these sometimes suffer from problems (most notably ugly/nonnative fonts) on certain distributions.

If this is the case for you, you can install Pyzo the “Linyx-way”. Pyzo runs on Python 3 and only further needs PyQt4. Therefore, it’s enough to do:

$ sudo apt-get install python3-pip python3-pyqt4
$ sudo python3 -m pip install pyzo --upgrade
$ pyzo

Instead of apt-get you may need to use yum or other, depending on your distribution.

For the Python environment to run your code in, you can either use the Python interpreter that comes with your system, or install miniconda/anaconda as explained in the quickstart.
