If we got Eric 4 that's suitable for python 2 and Eric 5 is the IDE for python 3 . so we need to install ERIC 5 to load python 3 .

To install eric5 for python 3:

:~/eric5-5.x.x$ sudo python3

Note: Probably best to remove original attempt first before second install. Take a look in original extracted/unpacked file folder and run Once runs, type the "locate" command to see if it removed the files.
