sudo apt-get install python-scitools(This installs scitools as part of the system's Python (in /usr/bin/python). If you use a local installation of Python in your own directory tree, as described in Appendix A of the book, you need to install scitools as explained in the next bullet.)
python setup.py installThis will install the package. If your Python installation resides in system directories, where only the root user has write access, you either need to log in as root and perform the installation command above, or you can install scitools in some directory where Python can find it, e.g.,
python setup.py install --prefix=$PREFIXif you use the scheme for installing software as described in Appendix A in the book. Other methods for installing Python software like scitools are also described in that appendix. You can alternatively set PYTHONPATH and PATH to $scripting/scitools/lib and $scripting/scitools/bin, respectively, as described in Chapter 1.2 of the book.
