Accelerate: command not found

So I read about the accelerate library and it sounds way easier to use than the pytorch DPP.
So I installed it using pip install accelerate on my virtual machine (linux docker). After that I tried to type the command accelerate configurate in the terminal and it tells me that : bash: accelerate: command not found. any solutions please ?
Thanks in advance

What may be happening is the wrong python could be getting pointed to: python - pip not installing entry_points as executables - Stack Overflow

You should check which python and pip show accelerate to see where everything is being installed.

Ideally try using something like venv or conda to install it there, I haven’t personally had issues with the entrypoint commands having issues that way
