What if you do not need a newer version of Python than the one that comes preinstalled on the controller, but you do want pip installed? There is a simple way to do so!

You can download the installation script via the curl command:

curl -o

The above command downloads an installation file to the current directory which you can execute with the following command:


This will install pip on your controller together with wheel and setuptools.

If you wish not to install these, you can install pip with the following command:

python3 --no-wheel --no-setuptools
