Hello All,

When I try to install Odoo8 latest version via Odoo documentation and proceed the "sudo python setup.py install" command i'm getting following this error,

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./setup.py", line 7, in <module>
    from setuptools import find_packages, setup
ImportError: No module named setuptools

So can anyone please help me to resolve this.

Thank You.

Install them on your OS before running the script. For example (if you are on Debian or Ubuntu server):

sudo apt-get install python-setuptools
