nuxeo-drive 3.1.0 installation on ubuntu fails

Installation of ndrive 3.1.0 or 3.1.1 fails with the message : Cloning (to revision release-3.1.0) to /tmp/pip-req-build-R7lGAk

Complete output from command python egg_info:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/tmp/pip-req-build-R7lGAk/'


Command “python egg_info” failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip-req-build-R7lGAk/ File “” seams to be missing in the clone as downloaded

FTR starting with Drive 4.2.0, an AppImage file is available for GNU/Linux users: No more need for manual installation, it is a self-contained file, download-and-run, that's it! :)

Hi Mikaël, Release 4.0.0 includes upgrade of QT and Python, and is in pre-release. Do you think I can start to test to install on my Linux ? Regards,

Nuxeo Drive is no more installable from PyPi. Either keep with an old version or wait or the next release which will ease the GNU/Linux installation. But since you upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04 (I guess from the other question), your best bet is to wait.

Thank you for this prompt and clear reply. Is it a means to be notified as soon as the next release becomes available ?

Of course, I will add a comment here when available. You can still have a look at this page which list all releases:

Hi, a very good news for me to…

The 4.0.2 version is available :)
