pip install --user tox doesn't add tox to path

Issue #242 on hold
Willem Mali created an issue

After installing tox using the command:

pip install --user tox

It wasn't added to my path, making bash say it wasn't currently installed and could be installed from Ubuntu universe from the package python-tox, in response to the command tox.

However, python -m tox did work.

I'm running Lubuntu 14.04. This is possibly a bug of pip.

    @WillemMali seems like .local/bin/ is not in the system PATH variable. That is where pip puts scripts when installation for the user.

    Try with

    export PATH=~/.local/bin:$PATH
    tox --version
