[Tutor] pip install

Hey all,

I'm trying to set up a virtual environment. I've used Windows Powershell on
my desktop with Windows 10. I was able only to get to 2.5 minutes of a 9.75
minute video before getting frozen, not just stuck. I was unable to
activate the batch file even though everything appeared to be where it
should be. I then found out about Linux Bash Shell for Windows and used
that, I next successfully installed virtualenv, but when I went to run it
it said command virtualenv not found but can be installed with sudo apt
install virtualenv, which I did, then tried to run 'virtualenv pdxCrime'
(without the apostrophes) and it errors out with

command virtualenv not found, did you mean:

command 'virtualenv' from deb virtualenv

Try: sudo apt install <deb name>

My bash shell is Ubuntu not debian. Not sure if that makes a difference.

I don't understand what <deb name> is. I don't understand why virtualenv
isn't found when it was successfully installed and every piece of
documentation I've found tells me to use that word or command.

The only reason I ask this forum is because the instructor of the video
hasn't responded to my email yet and this seems to be related to python
somehow although I'm a little foggy about that. If this is not the forum
please tell me where to go (be nice).

Thank you.
