Where is the python pip pakage?


Trying to install pip, I need it badly to develop python stuff, but Teltonika removed it ?! It have been included before I think… or is it in some other module?

Using firmware Latest to download from server as of 2024-01-16 on RUTX50

opkg update
opkg list , Then I only see this python stuff to install

You can still access OpenWrt repositories independently. There’s a post explaining how others are doing it: Link to the post.



Hi Marijus.
When I click your link it’s showing my own post, please give me the correct link to a post explaining how I can add other repositories.


I’ve fixed the link, so it should work correctly now.



Thanks what set me into the right direction.

This was the final solution:

#updating the openwrt dist feed
opkg -e /etc/opkg/openwrt/distfeeds.conf update

#installing real mosquitto client. Worked great. Should be included in teltonikas kernal!
opkg -e /etc/opkg/openwrt/distfeeds.conf install mosquitto-client-ssl

#testing the mqtt client. Worked, finally I can send any MQTT message I want from CLI
mosquitto_pub -h myserver.com -p myportnumer -t my_topic -m “my_message”

#installed the pip so I can developy my own functionallity!!!
opkg -e /etc/opkg/openwrt/distfeeds.conf install python3-pip



I’m happy to help. Good luck developing Python scripts :snake: .
