…for 2017, anyhow.
It’s still half an hour to the New Year but I won’t wait up for it. What’s surprising to me is my total lack of fanfare and fuss over the transition. In the past I always treated the threshhold like some momentous occasion. But not so this year. I really must be getting old.
Good night, and see you tomorrow.
You need to install the selenium library for Python. Don’t use the version from the Ubuntu repository, install it instead using
So first, we install
pip and upgrade it in the process.
sudo apt-get install python3-pip
pip3 install --upgrade pip
Then we install selenium
pip3 install -U selenium
We also need to install the geckodriver. Choose the version for your platform and unzip it in a directory.
Set the PATH to point to the geckodriver.
(It may be a good idea to set this in your startup or environment script.)
Follow the examples in the Selenium Python documentation pages. Some examples may need some fine tuning.
If you have both Python 2.x and Python 3.x on your system, please make sure to choose the correct one when running your scripts.
