Run python script on terminal ubuntu

0 votes

I've just changed my OS and I'm now using ubuntu and I can't run any script on my terminal.

I made sure to have the #!/usr/bin/env python but when I go to the terminal and type, for example python test.py the terminal shows an error message like this

python: can't open file 'test.py': [Errno 2] No such file or directory

I must save the file in any specific folder to make it run on terminal?

Your shell in the terminal has a concept of "Current working directory", which is what directory (folder) it is currently "in".

Thus, if you type something like:

python test.py

test.py needs to be in the current working directory. In Linux, you can change the current working directory with cd.
