Debian or Ubuntu, system-wide install

Urwid is packaged as python-urwid in Debian and Ubuntu. Use your favorite package manager or issue the following command as root:

apt-get install python-urwid

With pip

pip install urwid

Other operating systems, system-wide install

Download and extract the Urwid tarball, then run the following commands in the urwid-X.Y.Z directory as root:

python setup.py install

SuSE users please note: SuSE Linux may not come with the curses library installed. You will need to install the ncurses and python-curses packages before you can use Urwid's curses_display module.

Local install

If you don't have root access or you don't want to do a system wide install, you can download and extract the Urwid tarball, then copy the inner urwid directory into the directory of each program that needs to use it.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
