Python 3 Module install folder

Hi everyone

I install python’s module on my Jetson by pip command and I saw 2 folder where module installed:
folder 1: /home/jetson/.local/lib/python3.6/site-packages
folder 2: /usr/local/lib/python3.6/dist-packages
Some module installed into folder 1 and some module installed into folder 2
With the app which has import module installed from folder 2 I can make run at boot by service file in systemd but if the module import from folder 1, when I make run at boot, it has error no module name… (although I can run normally when call from terminal by command: python3 app_name.py)
Any body know why exist 2 folder where python’s module installed and how to make app run at boot when module installed to folder 1?

hello duyhuanctm3,

it’s folder1 as an approach to install and use pip without root permission,
you may install all python modules manually via pip in a local directory without root.
check this, for more details. Install and use pip in a local directory without root/sudo access. · GitHub
