What is the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a; python -version


Thomas Kr├╝ger (thkrueger) said : #2

Ubuntu 12.04 comes with the most recent version of Python 2 (2.7.3) installed. The most recent recent version of Python 3 can be installed via the software center as package name "python3.2".

Warren Hill (warren-hill) said : #3

You should have it installed already (Probably version 2.7.3)

Andrew appears to have made a slight typing error in post #1 (unusual for him) In a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) Enter the following command

lsb_release -a; uname -a; python --version

note extra dash before version

This will tell us which Ubuntu you have installed and what version of Python.

Can you help with this problem?
