Error installing linter-flake 8

See original GitHub issue

I tried to install linter-flake 8 using

and when I opened Atom, I got an error that says

Failed to spawn command /usr/local/bin/flake8. Make sure /usr/local/bin/flake8 is installed and on your PATH


Error: spawn /usr/local/bin/flake8 ENOENT

I have when I installed linter-flake 8 I typed these to my terminal ( I have OS x El Capitan 10.11.2)

$pip install flake8
$apm install linter-flake8
$pip install flake8-docstrings
$pip install hacking
$pip install flake8

and the error still shows up? Is there anything I can do here?

Sorry, should have read more carefully above. I took your advice from above and manually added the above location to my linter-flake8 settings and it worked. Thanks!

Something is wrong with your Python installation then, since wherever pip is installing things isn’t in your PATH.

You could hunt that down and manually put the path in your linter-flake8 settings (which it looks like you might have tried to do already?), but it’s probably a better idea to figure out why it isn’t in your PATH.
