On Debian testing

On Debian, pyspread is available as a package. A Python3 version is only available in testing at the moment.

su -
apt install pyspread

Other platforms


Get the prerequisites:

  • Python (>=3.6)
  • PyQt5 (>=5.10) (must include PyQtSvg)
  • numpy (>=1.1)

and if needed the suggested modules:

  • matplotlib (>=1.1.1)
  • pyenchant (>=1.1)
  • pip (>=18)

Should the package pkg_resources be missing in your setup (e.g. on Ubuntu), then you may need to reinstall pip for Python3.

On Debian unstable:

su -
apt install python3-pyqt5 python3-pyqt5.qtsvg python3-numpy python3-pyqt5.qtwebengine
apt install python3-matplotlib python3-enchant python3-pip
