I tried to install distribute or setuptools which has to be done prior to installing pip on the Raspberry Pi.
The command used was
$ curl http://python-distribute.org/distribute_setup.py | python
However I got the following error. I can copy past the entire terminal script if requested.
[Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/test-easy-install-2082.pth'
Thanks for helping!
