Comments on Adding Python 3.11 to `$PATH`

Adding Python 3.11 to `$PATH`

+3
−0

Hi, I'm new here. So basically I builded Python 3.11 (https://python.org/) from source (from GitHub python/cpython branch "3.11"). So, here what I did : (obviously first I downloaded the repo as ZIP)

cd Downloads
7z x cpython-3.11.zip
cd cpython-3.11
chmod +x configure
./configure
make

Everything is okay, I can run Python 3.11 only in the directory because it is not added to $PATH. And here is the problem.

What I tried :

  1. Rename the file ~/cpython-3.11/python to ~/cpython-3.11/python3.11
  2. Open the .bashrc file located in /home/[username]/
  3. Added that line of code at the end : export PATH="/home/hg/cpython-3.11/python3.11:$PATH

Note that my user name is hg (HGStyle). So I restarted my terminal and it does not work. Can someone help please ?

I tried to do the same thing on the .profile file but it still does not work. I tried to remove the quote marks but it still does not work.

Do you want to replace your previous python with 3.11 or do you want to install it in addition to the existing version?
