Install Jupyter Notebook on Jetson TX2

This is my memo to setup Jupyter Notebook on Jetson TX2.


  • Ubuntu 16.04
  • Jetson TX2
  • JetPack 3.2.1
  • Jupyter 4.4.0


Always use Anaconda to setup python on Ubuntu. But, could not use it on Jetson TX2 unfortunately.

Install Pyenv

Before installed Jupyter, setup pyenv. Because thinking about will install ROS in the near future.

$ sudo apt-get install python3-dev
$ pip3 install virtualenv
$ virtualenv -p python3 venv_jupyter
$ source venv_jupyter/bin/activate

Install Jupyter Notebook

Install jupyter using pip.

$ pip3 install jupyter

At that time, got an error with pyzmq.

    bundled/zeromq/src/atomic_ptr.hpp:116:14: note:   initializing argument 4 of ‘void* zmq::atomic_cas(void* volatile*, void*, void*, zmq::mutex_t&)’

Installed pyzmq 17.0.0 individually.

$ pip3 install pyzmq==17.0.0

And tried again.

$ pip3 install jupyter
$ jupyter notebook
