New installation procedure

Hi all, congrats on creating what I hope is a highly useful, much needed piece of software. I may have installed it correctly after some digging for the right info. I have no idea and can't figure out how to run eSim. So some simple instructions would be wonderful. I'm running Kubuntu 18.

Regarding the install procedure:

  • The web page, manual & GitHub detail a install.sh type install whereas actual is via a python setup.py.
  • setup.py uses function 'setuptools.find_namespace_packages'. Despite the official docs, none of the pythons (2, 3.6, 3.8) have this function. I edited set.py to use 'find_packages':

#packages=find_namespace_packages(where='src'), # No. Nope. Nosirreebob
packages=find_packages(), # No complaints from the command line

Command line:

:) sudo python3 setup.py develop
running develop
running egg_info
writing src/eSim.egg-info/PKG-INFO
writing dependency_links to src/eSim.egg-info/dependen
writing top-level names to src/eSim.egg-info/top_level
reading manifest file 'src/eSim.egg-info/SOURCES.txt'
writing manifest file 'src/eSim.egg-info/SOURCES.txt'
running build_ext
Creating /usr/local/lib/python3.6/dist-packages/eSim.ec)
Adding eSim 2.0.0 to easy-install.pth file

Installed /home/g/Projects/ArduinoPi/CicuitSims/eSim-m
Processing dependencies for eSim==2.0.0
Finished processing dependencies for eSim==2.0.0


I also tried this:

:) pip install . # From inside eSim-master folder

Which also reported success.

So, how do I run it?

You may have misunderstood the installation procedure. The file "setup.py" is for Travis CI and not for installation. For installing eSim and related instructions, please refer here.

Please refer this question for your issue. The same is applicable for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
