Additional Notes

Pip Installing

If you're having trouble using pip install. Try using "python -m pip install --index-url example_pkg" Where the url is the project url and the example_pkg is the package you wish to install.

Python Library Path

You might be having a lot of trouble finding where to install the libraries manually. On raspbian it should look something like this: "usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages"
