I am working to set up a Django project on Amazon EC2 with an Ubuntu 14.04 LTS instance. I want to write my code using Python 3. I've been advised that the best way to do this is to use virtualenvwrapper. I've installed virtualenvwrapper successfully and put

export WORKON_HOME=$HOME/.virtualenvs

export VIRTUALENVWRAPPER_PYTHON=/usr/bin/python3.4


source /usr/local/bin/

into my .bashrc file. Now I see:

 /usr/bin/python3.4: Error while finding spec for 'virtualenvwrapper.hook_loader' (<class 'ImportErro

 r'>: No module named 'virtualenvwrapper') There was a problem running the initialization hooks.     

 If Python could not import the module virtualenvwrapper.hook_loader,

 check that virtualenvwrapper has been installed for

 VIRTUALENVWRAPPER_PYTHON=/usr/bin/python3.4 and that PATH is set properly.

How can I fix this?

 ubuntu@ip-XXX-XX-XX-XX:~$ mkvirtualenv -p /usr/bin/python3.4  env1

 Running virtualenv with interpreter /usr/bin/python3.4

 Using base prefix '/usr'

 New python executable in env1/bin/python3.4
