# Qiskit package installed locally, but not running in jupyter notebook

I believe I have installed qiskit on my computer. Running pip list or pip3 list in terminal returns:

qiskit                   0.26.0
qiskit-aer               0.8.2
qiskit-aqua              0.9.1
qiskit-ibmq-provider     0.13.1
qiskit-ignis             0.6.0
qiskit-terra             0.17.3


However when I then open a jupyter notebook and try

import qiskit


I get told that there is no module named qiskit available. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

• Did you ever resolve this? I had the same problem, and the below answer didn't work for me. Instead, I found another answer here on StackExchange that solved this issue: quantumcomputing.stackexchange.com/a/15591/15981 I'm new to all this, so forgive me if I butcher the explanation, but basically Jupyter is not starting a kernel within your new environment you made for QISKIT, so you need to set it up to give you the option to create notebooks within that environment. – Hee Jin May 23 at 23:47
