How to set system python

    2019年12月18日 字数:521

Recently I tried bonnetal and accidentally changed my system python by

sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/python python /usr/bin/python2.7 1

In fact, we could use sudo update-alternatives --config python to select python versions. The default one for ubuntu 1604 is python 2.7, which is also used by ROS. Only when we enter conda, the python version changes to python 3.6.

Also note that in ~\.bashrc, we need the path in following order

# for ros
source /opt/ros/kinetic/setup.bash
#this should be after ros
export PATH="$PATH:/home/erl/anaconda3/bin"
