I have installed different python versions on my Linux Mint DE. I used the
update-alternatives --set statement to easily switch between the different versions.
apt-get install or
upgrade or something similar have problems recognizing the correct python path. It seems to want to use python2.7, although I have set the correct alternative. I guess
apt-get can't find out that
/usr/bin/python points to
/etc/alternatives/python and that to
If I manually create a symbolic link directly from
apt-get finishes without an error.
How can I use the alternatives option so that
apt-get can correctly detect and use the configured python version?
