Step 1: Installation

Type the following into the terminal:

sudo su -
apt-get update
apt-get install python3-matplotlib
apt-get install python3-scipy
pip3 install --upgrade pip
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:
