  2. Otherwise, set up a new virtual environment:

    $ python -m venv ~/env/aiida-vasp
  3. And then enable the newly installed virtual environment:

    $ source ~/env/aiida-vasp/bin/activate
  4. Install the AiiDA-VASP plugin (and AiiDA if that is not already installed):

    $ (aiida-vasp) pip install aiida-vasp
  5. Update the entry points that AiiDA are using:

    $ (aiida-vasp) reentry scan -r aiida

Please consider that AiiDA have prerequisite that needs to be installed and ensured working. The steps above will not take care of this for you. Please consult AiiDA prerequisites and follow the instructions therein.
