This article will introduce a very simple yet interesting and important concept that is How To Run Python In Ubuntu (Linux)? with a detailed practical demonstration. So let us get started then,

How to run Python in Ubuntu (Linux)

If you are curious about how to run Python in Ubuntu, here’s an article dedicated for it which may help you out. We are here using Ubuntu Version 14.04. It supports Python 2 and Python 3 versions.

Step 7: Open Terminal in left hand side down corner.

Step 8: Once done, we have to change the directory so that it’s easy access for us to fetch the code.

Step 9: For that the linux command is cd Documents/ wherever your file is saved.

Step 10: Once done, enter and you are in that particular directory.

Step 11: Now to run your Python file, all you have to command is ‘python yourfilename.py’.

Step 12: It basically tells the terminal to run the python file.

Step 13: In case if you want to check which version of Python are you using, you can write python –version.

Step 14:  Instead of using Python 2 version, if you use Python 3 version, you can readily execute it by writing ‘python3 yourfilename.py’.

Step 15: Make sure while executing your Python code in Python 3 version, you use the syntax according to Python 3. Example : Python 2 print statement may or may not have ( ) with print statements but in Python 3, print statements should be with ().
