Can anyone suggest a method of installing this on Mageia 8 ?
It uses installers like brew, pipx and python 3, as per the attachment. They are not coming up in any package searches.

The correct package for this software is python-pip. Once installed I was able to do . .
Code: Select all
$ pip install jrnl
Defaulting to user installation because normal site-packages is not writeable
