I recently bought a new laptop and installed ubuntu. I messed around with bash and learned that I there is a default python interpreter. However, the biggest problem that I face is that I can't get it to import pygame, a neat package that I've used in some projects. python3 gives me "ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'pygame'".
I've scoured around the Internet to find a meaningful solution but only came across someone mentioning /usr/bin/python3. I used it on terminal and did not produce any errors. I couldn't get what the rest of the post was saying because it turned too technical for me (My knowledge in programming is very limited as you have guessed).
Ultimately, what I want is for my vs code to execute python3 without giving errors on the import lines. Or at the very least, I need to be able to run a script in terminal without any preliminary errors so I can debug my own code peacefully. It is also giving me a weird error saying that I don't have pip, again, I already got it installed with:
sudo apt-get install python-pip
EDIT As pointed out by Kumpel Gras, The root of my problems was that I had only installed pip instead of pip3. I managed to get things working after installing python3-pip
