Unable to create new Django project

Hi all.

I am Node developer learning Django.

I am getting the following error while creating a new django project:

I have installed all the prerequisites including django using this guide django tutorial.

I am on a fresh arch installation.

What could be the possible cause?

Thanks in advance

The program 'django-admin' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt install python-django-common

...
I am on a fresh arch installation.

Excuse me, but that doesn't look like Arch Linux at all.

How exactly did you install the prerequisites?

Yeah, I am guessing Debian.  Closed. Dustbinned.

akmann,  If I am wrong, and you are running Arch, report this thread and drop the moderators an explanation.

Edit:  I saw your report, please update your first post with the correct output.  Re-opening and moving to "Applications and Desktop Environments"

Re: Unable to create new Django project

What could be possible causes:

- that you are in a venv - I don't know, maybe you cannot access other python things which are not installed into said virtual environment

- maybe you want django-admin.py – although, no, that should not be the cause

Re: Unable to create new Django project

I have tried to replicate steps on Ubuntu, and it works like charm, but for some reason, it doesn't on Arch.

I am struggling with this issue for  2 days but haven't found any workaround.

Re: Unable to create new Django project

django-admin works for me here in a virtual env. I used the builtin version in python3, though.

(pacman -S python)
mkdir -p /tmp/project
cd /tmp/project
python -m venv pythonenv
source pythonenv/bin/activate
pip install django==1.11
django-admin startproject django-project
deactivate

You installed django with pip into the venv. I wonder if it would generally not work if you installed the Archlinux package instead (which lies outside the venv)

Ubuntu uses by default python2, arch python3. This also reflects in a different naming scheme.
The ubuntu package python-django is the python2 package, while in Arch it is the python3 package.

The python2 package is python2-django, and to not clash with the python3 package the command in question has been renamed to django-admin2

That said, django did drop support for python 2 with version 2.0, the python 2 variant remains at version 1.11. Python 3 has been out for 10 years.
