I cannot find askbot-setup file in Linux

I have installed askbot pip install askbot

I have also installed python-dev via package manager

I have searched the file system but cannot find this setup file. I know that I can manually go through the config files. Just wondering if anyone else has seen this, and if I need to do anything for this setup script to be installed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The askbot-setup file will be installed in the /bin directory of your python environment.

Just type askbot-setup and it should run. If it does not - then you may be outside of your python environment.

I searched the entire file system and no luck finding this. Can you tell me the package names that you installed for Python and askbot?

I was able to figure it out. I originally tried installing askbot via pip pip install askbot

Switched to easy_install and can now see askbot-setup easy_install askbot
