I have a RPi2 with Buster 2019-09-26 freshly flashed. Entering
python --version in a terminal returns
Python 2.7.17 I want to use the original IDLE that came with Python a couple/few years ago. I have searched here for a few days now without luck. I have seen points made such as
- Python 2 not recommended, use Python 3
- IDLE is not recommended, use Thonny etc.
- Support has been (or will shortly be) dropped for Python 2.7.xx
I still want to use the original IDLE that came with Python 2.7
Using apt to install IDLE for Python2 makes it show up in the menu (or lets it appear in Main Menu Editor, I can’t remember which), but clicking it is no different than clicking the icon for IDLE 3.
