‚ÄčThis is how you *download* acpype, not how you install it. There is a
wiki with instructions on how to use it:

The problem you have is that acpype is not in your PATH. This is a general
Unix concept -- if a program is not in your PATH, you cannot run it on the
command-line without specifying the location of the executable explicitly.
All of this stuff is usually explained in an introductory Unix tutorial.
