pip is a script that downloads and installs modules from the Python Package Index, PyPI. It should come installed with your python distribution. If you are running linux, pip may be bundled separately. On a Debian-based system (including Ubuntu), you can install it as root using

apt-get update
apt-get install python-pip

Make sure you have required packages for Pillow installation. On linux you have to install some extra libraries before pandoc-latex-tip. On a Debian-based system (including Ubuntu), you can install it as root using

apt-get build-dep python-imaging
apt-get install libjpeg8 libjpeg62-dev libfreetype6 libfreetype6-dev
