I tried to install psycopg2 to my environment, but I get the following error:

I also get errors trying to install gunicorn. I followed this example here but nothing. My virtual environment was created using the --no-site-packagesflag. I use ubuntu 13.10 and greek environment. Maybe it’s that?

Answers:

The python-dev package is required for compilation of Python extensions written in C or C++, like psycopg2. If you’re running a Debian-based distribution (e.g. Ubuntu), you can install python-dev by running

apt-get install python-dev

or

apt-get install python3-dev

depending on your python version.

After that, proceed to install psycopg2 in your virtualenv environment as usual.

Answers:

For Ubuntu 14.04, from Docker image python:3.4.3-slim this combination worked for me:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y build-essential
sudo apt-get install -y python3.4-dev
sudo apt-get install -y libpq-dev

pip3 install psycopg2

Note build-essential package. It was crucial in my case.

Answers:

In my case (ubuntu 12.04 with python 2.7 and python 3.4 installed)

sudo apt-get install python3-dev 

was not enough. What did the trick was

sudo apt-get install python3.4-dev

Questions:
Answers:

First of all install python-dev

sudo apt-get install python-dev

And to adecuate use try this:

This is to do with the encoding of your terminal not being set to UTF-8. Here is my terminal:

$ echo $LANG
es_UY.UTF-8
$ python
Python 2.7.3 (default, Apr 20 2012, 22:39:59) 
[GCC 4.6.3] on linux2

>>> s = '(\xef\xbd\xa1\xef\xbd\xa5\xcf\x89\xef\xbd\xa5\xef\xbd\xa1)\xef\xbe\x89'
>>> s1 = s.decode('utf-8')
>>> print s1
(。・ω・。)ノ
>>> 

If I unset I got the same error you got:

$ unset LANG
