Python Question

Trying to install Couchbase, with gcc command fails, Python

I try to install couchbase for python, but I get the following error:

building 'couchbase._libcouchbase' extension
creating build/temp.linux-i686-2.7
creating build/temp.linux-i686-2.7/src
creating build/temp.linux-i686-2.7/src/viewrow

In file included from src/exceptions.c:17:0:
src/pycbc.h:25:36: fatal error: libcouchbase/couchbase.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1


I installed the couchbase server and the c library, and I already had:

sudo apt-get install build-essential # for a C compiler
sudo apt-get install python-dev


So what's wrong ?

Answer

You should install libcouchbase first http://www.couchbase.com/communities/c/getting-started

wget -O- http://packages.couchbase.com/ubuntu/couchbase.key | sudo apt-key add - 
sudo wget -O/etc/apt/sources.list.d/couchbase.list \
    http://packages.couchbase.com/ubuntu/couchbase-ubuntu1204.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libcouchbase2-libevent libcouchbase-dev
