Best Way to Install Python in Linux Mint


In this blog, I am going to share the best way to install python in linux mint.

First, We have to install some depedencies,

sudo apt-get install build-essential checkinstall
sudo apt-get install libreadline-gplv2-dev libncursesw5-dev libssl-dev libsqlite3-dev tk-dev libgdbm-dev libc6-dev libbz2-dev

Then Download the python source for the linux environment by the following commands.

cd ~/Downloads/

Extract and goto the libraries,

tar -xvf Python-2.7.5.tgz
cd Python-3.4.3

Then, we could normally install the source with the make commands.

sudo checkinstall

that's all, I hope, this would help you.
