Python.h is nothing but a header file. It is used by gcc to build applications. You need to install a package called python-dev. This package includes header files, a static library and development tools for building Python modules, extending the Python interpreter or embedding Python in applications.

enter:

$ sudo apt-get install python-dev

or

# apt-get install python-dev

Answered By: Fred

Despite being an old question, I’ll add my opinion.

I think the right answer depends on the error message of the gcc compiler, something like “Missing xxxx.h”

This might help in some cases:

sudo apt-get install build-essential python-dev

I encountered the same problem in college having installed Linux Mint for the main project of my final year, the third solution below worked for me.

When encountering this error please note before the error it may say you are missing a package or header file — you should find those and install them and verify if it works (e.g. ssl → libssl).

For Python 2.x use:

sudo apt-get install python-dev

For Python 2.7 use:

sudo apt-get install libffi-dev

For Python 3.x use:

sudo apt-get install python3-dev

or for a specific version of Python 3, replace x with the minor version in

sudo apt-get install python3.x-dev

You need to install these packages:

In my case, it was missing package libffi-dev.

What worked:

sudo apt-get install libffi-dev

After upgrade my computer with pip today, and check the other answers here, I can tell you that it could be ANYTHING. You should check error by error, looking for what’s the specific library that you need. In my case, these were the libraries that I had to install:

$ sudo apt-get install libssl-dev
$ sudo apt-get install libffi-dev
$ sudo apt-get install libjpeg-dev
$ sudo apt-get install libvirt-dev
$ sudo apt-get install libsqlite3-dev
$ sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev
$ sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev python-dev

Using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with a virtualenv running python 3.5, I had to do:

sudo apt-get install python3.5-dev

The other commands:

sudo apt-get install python-dev
sudo apt-get install python3-dev

Did not help. I think this is because the virtualenv needs to rely on the system-wide python-dev package and it must match the virtualenv‘s python version. However, using the above commands installs python-dev for python 2.x and the python 3.x that comes with Ubuntu 14.04 which is 3.4, not 3.5.

Tip: Please do not consider this as an answer. Just to help someone else too.

I had similar issue while installing psycopg2. I installedbuild-essential, python-dev and also libpq-dev but it thrown same error.

error: Setup script exited with error: command 'x86_64-linux-gnu-gcc' failed with exit status 1

As I was in hurry in deployment so finally just copied full line from
@user3440631’s answer.

sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf libtool pkg-config python-opengl python-imaging python-pyrex python-pyside.qtopengl idle-python2.7 qt4-dev-tools qt4-designer libqtgui4 libqtcore4 libqt4-xml libqt4-test libqt4-script libqt4-network libqt4-dbus python-qt4 python-qt4-gl libgle3 python-dev

And It worked like a charm. but could not find which package has resolved my issue.
Please update the comment if anyone have idea about psycopg2 dependancy package from above command.

in the same case, please consider the typo (bug) in one of the installation files and edit it manually by changing “X509_REVOKED_dup” to “X509_REVOKED_dupe” (no quotes). I have edited the x509.h file:

sed -e’s/X509_REVOKED_dup/X509_REVOKED_dupe/g’ -i
usr/include/openssl/x509.h

and it worked for me, but please consult with the post linked below, as they edited another file:

sed -e’s/X509_REVOKED_dup/X509_REVOKED_dupe/g’ -i OpenSSL/crypto/crl.c

Like Robin Winslow says in a comment :

I found my solution over here: stackoverflow.com/a/5178444/613540

In my case, my complete error message was :

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lz 
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
error: Setup script exited with error: command 'x86_64-linux-gnu-gcc' failed with exit status 1

I was trying to install torrench :

sudo python3 setup.py install

With given stackoverflow link, I solve this issue by :

sudo apt install zlib1g-dev

Note that the following packages were already installed :

libxslt1-dev is already the newest version.
python3-dev is already the newest version.
libxml2-dev is already the newest version.

Hope that will help !

In my case pip was unable to install libraries, I tried solutions given above, but none worked but the below worked for me:

sudo apt upgrade gcc
Answered By: yunus

first you need to find out what the actual problem was. what you’re seeing is that the C compiler failed but you don’t yet know why. scroll up to where you get the original error. in my case, trying to install some packages using pip3, I found:

    Complete output from command /usr/bin/python3 -c "import setuptools, tokenize;__file__='/tmp/pip-build-4u59c_8b/cryptography/setup.py';exec(compile(getattr(tokenize, 'open', open)(__file__).read().replace('rn', 'n'), __file__, 'exec'))" install --record /tmp/pip-itjeh3va-record/install-record.txt --single-version-externally-managed --compile --user:
    c/_cffi_backend.c:15:17: fatal error: ffi.h: No such file or directory

 #include <ffi.h>

                 ^

compilation terminated.

so in my case I needed to install libffi-dev.

Lot of time I got the same error when installing M2Crypto & pygraphviz and installed all the things mention in the approved answer. But this below line solved all my problems with the other packages in approved answer too.

sudo apt-get install libssl-dev swig

This swig package saved my life as the solution for M2Crypto and graphviz-dev for pygraphviz. I hope this will help someone.

In my case following command did the magic

sudo apt-get install gcc python3-dev

if the above command didn’t work try following two commands

sudo apt-get install gcc python-dev
  1. this is the case when you want it to install for the python version set as default python in your machine.

Or

sudo apt-get install gcc python3.x-dev
  1. where python3.x represent the version number of python installed on your machine.

TL;DR: run the below command

sudo apt-get install python2-dev gcc

I had this problem when trying to pip install a module for python2.7.

Lots of answers mention that a fix for this is sudo apt-get install python-dev. However, this did not work for me, as the package was not found. However, the command shown at the top of this comment exists, and I was finally able to pip install the module.
