Yep, but I think it's not recommend to use pip along with OS package manager as well. Solus already has python packages so I think it would be a good inclusion.
I know you can also use virtualenvs but I feel that's a bit overkill for linting...
I looked into this, as I too use pylint from time to time. However it has a lot of dependencies that have not been added to the repos.
I don't think it is worth it, I use it as part of projects virtualenvs as it is.
