View Full Version : start idle with python 3.6 not 2.7

20th September 2017, 09:41 AM
I'm just trying to learn some python.

I have python 3.6 in Fedora 26. When I start idle, it is using python 2.7.

How can I make idle start and use python 3.6?

I can just start python3 in a terminal, but the ide is nicer.

Looks like Python 3 IDLE is snuck craftily into python3-tools. So if you run:

sudo dnf install python3-tools

You will get IDLE for Python3 syntax
