How Do You Install pip or pip3?

Problem scenario
You think you installed pip (e.g., using this posting for Debian/Ubuntu, using this posting with Linux SUSE, using this posting for a CentOS/RHEL/Fedora server, or this posting as an alternative), but when you run pip, you get "command not found."  How do you install pip and get it working?

Solution
pip or pip3 may be installed.  But the path to it may not be in your environment (e.g., env) variables.  Run these commands:

sudo find / -name pip
sudo find / -name pip3

Use the full directory path and the pip file when calling the pip command.  For example, use one of the following as a command:

/usr/bin/subdirectory/version/pip
/usr/bin/subdirectory/version/pip3
