1. Install Luftdatenpumpe#

1.1. Setup#

Install prerequisites:

apt install build-essential python3-dev libicu-dev

Install Luftdatenpumpe:

pip install luftdatenpumpe


  • We recommend to use a Python virtualenv to install and operate this software independently from your local system-wide Python installation.

  • In order to make the luftdatenpumpe command available system-wide, just place a symlink into /usr/local/bin, like:

    ln -s /opt/luftdatenpumpe/.venv/bin/luftdatenpumpe /usr/local/bin/luftdatenpumpe

1.2. Troubleshooting#


luftdatenpumpe depends on the PyICU package. Sometimes, pkg-config is not able to find the appropriate ICU installation, like:

Please set the ICU_VERSION environment variable to the version of
ICU you have installed.

So, you might try to do things like:

# Announce path to icu4c.
$ export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/local/opt/icu4c/lib/pkgconfig"

# To verify if that works, run:
$ pkg-config --modversion icu-i18n
