I have installed python3.6.1 I want to make it the default for the system when python is called. I also want IDLE to open to that version.
After installing python3.6.1:
Requirement already up-to-date: setuptools in /usr/local/lib/python3.6/site-packages Requirement already up-to-date: pip in /usr/local/lib/python3.6/site-packages
- python runs 3.5.2
- IDLE3 also runs 3.5.2
/usr/bin $ ls | grep python dh_python2 dh_python3 idle-python2.7 idle-python3.5 python python2 python2.7 python2.7-config python2-config python3 python3.5 python3.5m python3m python-config x86_64-linux-gnu-python2.7-config x86_64-linux-gnu-python-config
