sudo su - apt-get update apt-get install python3-matplotlib apt-get install python3-scipy pip3 install --upgrade pip reboot sudo pip3 install jupyter
The Raspberry Pi normally uses an memory card, called an SD card, just like the ones you might use in your digital camera. They don’t have as much space as a normal computer. Issue the following command to clean up the software packages that were downloaded in order to update your Raspberry Pi.
sudo apt-get clean
Recent versions of Raspian replaced the Epiphany web browser with Chromium (an open source version of the popular Chrome browser). Epiphany is much lighter than the heavier Chromium and works better with the tiny Raspberry Pi Zero. To set it as the default browser to be used later for the IPython notebooks issue the following command:
sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser sudo reboot
Step 2: Testing
Start IPython by issuing the following command from the Terminal:
