Hi,

Yep, --user did that.

What I do not get is why the path was added before the system one.

I always try to avoid pip and use distro packages. If you want to use pip (or if there is no package for the library you want to install) , avoid using --user with pip and install system wide as you have admin rights in your machine.

Now you’ll have to install whatever you installed with pip again if you need it.

Cheers!
