How to install IDLE 3 in Fedora

Leave a comment

Today was on odd day, I got two requests. One was if I was willing to sell my used panties o_O 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

Python 2 will open, as you can see below:

python2

To exit Python 2 type:

ctrl+d

To check if you have Python 3 type:

python3

python3

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:

su

When asked type your password. Then:

dnf install python3-tools

intallidle3

After IDLE 3 is installed, to open it you need open terminal and type:

idle3

openingidle3Notice how you don’t have to be root to open IDLE 3?

****WARNING!****

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 😛
