Since upgrading to Mountain Lion, when running the command "virtualenv env", I get:

New python executable in env/bin/python

  Complete output from command /Users/agoodattitude...ncode/env/bin/python -c "#!python

Any ideas?

Edit: I now get:

    The first error in that traceback is seems to be: /usr/local/bin/easy_install: Permission denied, so you should check your permissions on /usr/local/bin and if you don't have access fix that with a sudo chown xxx. – Jimmy Hillis Jul 15 '12 at 7:19

You need to download the Command Line Tools for Mountain Lion.

Xcode installed:

Go to the prefences in Xcode (Xcode -> Preferences), select the 'Downloads' tab and choose to install Command Line Tools

Xcode not installed:

Apple has released a Command Line Tools package that is compatible with Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8.*), check the Apple Developers Download Page. You will need a free developer account for this.

  • Also this happened to be the reason that python twisted wouldn't install into other virtual env's. – Danny Staple Dec 28 '12 at 16:14

You need to install Xcode 4.4 (from the app store) and then, within xcode open Xcode > Preferences (or press Cmd + ,) then open the downloads tab and install the Command Line Tools.

For me, after installing the command-line tools, easy_install is in /usr/bin, not /usr/local/bin. I needed to remove easy_install from /usr/local/bin:

$ sudo rm /usr/local/bin/easy_install*

which removes (in my case) easy_install, easy_install-2.6, and easy_install-2.7

I had a similar issue trying to follow these directions, what fixed it was:

  • I removed /usr/bin/easy_install (not sure if nescessary)
  • INSTALLED VERTUALENV using the EASY_INSTALL that was installed by brew in /usr/local

And all good!

Virtualenv really is the way to go.
