Ubuntu: exec: "python": executable file not found in $PATH

Postby jcsbanks » Wed Oct 10, 2018 5:03 pm

I normally use ESP-IDF on Windows, but also installed ESP-IDF on Ubuntu and was able to compile and flash the board.

Then I installed Arduino from "Ubuntu Software", then used the boards manager with additional boards manager URL and obtained the ESP32 boards.

When compiling an example, I see "exec: "python": executable file not found in $PATH"

I can type python from a terminal and it runs. Adding /usr/bin/python to $PATH in profile.d (similar to adding paths for installing ESP-IDF) makes no difference.

Installing from running install.sh from the downloaded tar works for anyone else with the same problem.
