Today was on odd day, I got two requests. One was if I was willing to sell my used panties the other was if I can make a tutorial on how to install IDLE 3. In case you wonder 😕 these 2 requests came from two different people. I declined the request to sell my used panties but decided to grant the request regarding IDLE 3.
Fedora these days comes with Python 2 AND Python 3 preinstalled. You can check it for yourself.
To see if you if Python 2 is installed, fire up terminal and type:
Python 2 will open, as you can see below:
To exit Python 2 type:
To check if you have Python 3 type:
You exit Python 3 the same way as Python 2.
For Python 2 you need IDLE, for Python 3 you need IDLE 3. Yep, seperate IDLEs for different Pythons 🐱 If you want to install IDLE read this post. For IDLE 3 follow instructions below.
To install IDLE 3 open terminal and type:
When asked type your password. Then:
dnf install python3-tools
After IDLE 3 is installed, to open it you need open terminal and type:
Notice how you don’t have to be root to open IDLE 3?
Don’t close terminal while having IDLE3 open, if you do so it will close IDLE3 too!
Remember, you can always do the cliccie for a larger piccie 😛
