I have successfully installed python 3.3 on Ubuntu 12.10. Since I don’t need multiple versions of python, I want to remove the existing python 2.7. When I try to do that, using
sudo apt-get remove python2.7
Ubuntu warns me that there are tons of system dependent components which will also be removed. It looks really scary.
So, is there a way to remove python 2.7 without removing the system dependent components, or can I direct those dependents to use python 3.3?
