I need python 3.2 for development purposes, but new ubuntu 13.04 comes with python 3.3.
is there any best practice for installing older python version into ubuntu?

Use the Deadsnakes PPA, which includes a range of Python versions packaged for a range of Ubuntu versions, including 3.2 for raring.
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:fkrull/deadsnakes sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install python3.2
Download and compile Python (with the terminal):
wget http://python.org/ftp/python/3.3.0/Python-3.3.0.tar.bz2 tar jxf ./Python-3.3.0.tar.bz2 cd ./Python-3.3.0 ./configure --prefix=/opt/python3.3 make && sudo make install
