So I am trying to change my python default version to 3.5.2 or any 3 in general. I am running Gnu/Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon.
My OS came preinstalled with 3.5.2(I'm sure most do these days)
So if I try to change it using
However now if I exit the terminal and check the default again it hasn't changed.
The main reason I need to change python default is for running it in a text editor like atom or sublime where I need to use version 3.
I cant seem to change it there so by build systems so this seems to be the only way.
[Please do redirect me somewhere else if this dosent belong here, but as far as I can tell its a linux issue not a texteditor issue.
