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:
Don’t close terminal while having IDLE3 open, if you do so it will close IDLE3 too!
