Which IDLE package I should install from Software Center in Ubuntu assuming I want to program in Python 3?
You can install IDLE for Python 3 by installing the idle3 package in the official Ubuntu repositories:
sudo apt-get install idle3
For Python 2, replace idle3 with idle.
Use this package. Any of IDLE3 packages are fine. If you install IDLE3 it will get updated when they release a new version of IDLE3. But if you install IDLE(using Python-3.4), it won't get updated when IDLE for 3.5 is available.
