i am sorry to ask such question, but being new to coding, i can't solve this problem even with googling full 2 days. so here it goes.

I'm trying to run a demo posted at github using ubuntu for window10. there, i made a env using python 2.7.13 by virtualenv. i need to use tensorflow 1.3.0 with python 2.7 to run this demo, but when i try to install tensorflow==1.3.0 by pip (pip install tensorflow==1.3.0), it prints out No matching distribution found. same for tensorflow, tensorflow-1.3.0, tensorflow1, tensorflow==1, tensorflow==1.3 etc. i tried to build it myself or use the source file for tensorflow==1.3.0 in git but i got stuck everytime because i kept getting into different problems such as unable to install python-pip, linux(something)-wrapper, etc.

please, is there a way to install tensorflow==1.3.0 in virtual environment using python 2.7.13 or is there anything i can try?

oh! and while i still have no idea on what happen to python2 on janury 1st 2020, my main(?local? i don't know... the one that was installed in ubuntu) python version is 3.8. python2.7 is just for the virtual environment.

pip version is 20.3.4

honestly, i don't even know which part is wrong..

i tried looking at the /etc/apt as the internet said that is the source file, and there were some lines starting with

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/

but i guess they only matter when installing things by apt-get install..?

so maybe it's a pip problem and i should downgrade it as the project on github was lastly edited on july 2020...?

    If you must have TensorFlow 1.3 from about four years ago, the simplest option would be to use a Docker image as it comes mostly configured for you 👍🏻
