If you want to change the default version of python in your Linux machine, then you are in the right place.
You can change the default version of Python in Linux by using the following steps:
Check the available versions of Python using the command
Use the following command to create a symbolic link for the desired version of Python:
sudo ln -sf /usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/python
sudo ln -sf /usr/bin/python2 /usr/bin/python
Verify the change by running the command.
Note: This change may affect the system-wide use of Python and potentially break other installed packages that rely on a specific version of Python. Therefore, it’s recommended to use virtual environments to isolate different Python projects and their dependencies.
