How to install Python for Windows / Linux.

Windows

  1. Head to https://www.python.org/downloads/ and download your desired installer. We'll be using 3.9.2, as that's what RustMagic is built around.
  2. It's recommended that you install using the standard and recommended options. A red asterisk denotes something necessary for a usable installation. Screenshot 1
  3. Should you decide to customise your install a bit and stray from the recommended install, the following options are required: Screenshot 2 Screenshot 3
  4. If you are prompted to disable Path length limit, it is recommended you do so. Please google if you wish to make a more informed decision, and bare in mind it is entirely optional.
  5. You've successfully installed. 'Grats.

Linux (Ubuntu)

  1. Download the install.sh file from this repository.
  2. Edit the file, and replace 3.9.2 with whichever version you want installing.
  3. Run it with sudo bash install.sh.
  4. It will install Python using altinstall - it will install itself as pythonMAJOR.minor, in the case of 3.9.2, python3.9. This is the command you will use to access the Python binary.
  5. Need to install pip? RTFM

Linux (Other)

  1. Visit the Ubuntu Install File
  2. Read through it, and convert any commands that aren't relevant to your OS to ones that are. When it comes to installing dependencies, it may require a bit more thought & research.
  3. Run your converted file and hope it works. If not, find out why, and what you can do differently.
  4. Alternatively, there's no doubt dozens of tutorials available on the internet tailored to your install already.
