I got this while installing ERPNext on Ubuntu (WLS2)


bench init frappe-bench --frappe-branch version-14

Default python on most distros dont contain development headers. You forgot to install them Installation

$ sudo apt install git python-dev python-pip redis-server

Also on windows you’re better off using Docker GitHub - frappe/frappe_docker: Docker images for production and development setups of the Frappe framework and ERPNext


Now, can I possibly install with Docker on Ubuntu ?
