I am trying to use plotly on a virtual box vm using the downloaded
virtual machine image of SageMath.
I can get to the command line, <Right-Ctrl and F1>
I did not have pip which is used to install plotly but got it with
"sudo yum -y install python-pip"
then ran pip to get plotly
"sudo /usr/bin/pip-python ///install plotly"
back in sage <Right-Ctrl and F2>
"import plotly"
fails
but at the linux command line
"python"
"import plotly"
works, so possibly I installed to the wrong copy of python?
from http://ask.sagemath.org/question/3481/how-to-upgrade-a-python-package-with-pip
also tried some variaions on "sage --python /usr/bin/pip-python install"
all of which failed
any help?Thu, 27 Mar 2014 06:09:40 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/11348/trouble-installing-plotly-on-a-sage-virtualbox/Answer by russ_hensel for <p>Trouble Installing Plotly on a Sage VirtualBox</p>

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/11348/trouble-installing-plotly-on-a-sage-virtualbox/?answer=16105#post-id-16105following a suggestion at: http://ask.sagemath.org/question/1382/how-do-i-install-python-modules-or-use-a-different
it seemed that ./sage --python -m easy_install <package_name>
might work at the command line. plotly was in the python index so I tried
./sage --python -m easy_install plotly
which threw an error, perhaps because of my current directory, but
sage --python -m easy_install plotly
seemed to work, and after a restart of the virtual machine ( which might really be
the key to success ) plotly did work in the notebook.Fri, 28 Mar 2014 05:29:30 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/11348/trouble-installing-plotly-on-a-sage-virtualbox/?answer=16105#post-id-16105
