linux – sudo: python: command not found

linux – sudo: python: command not found

Your /etc/sudoers is explicitly configured to override your users path with a known, secure one.

That said, if you want to always path the users PATH through, you can easily override sudo with a function that will do this (installed in your ~/.bashrc or similar to make it persistent):

psudo() { sudo env PATH=$PATH [email protected]; } 

thereafter, psudo python will use the same python interpreter that would be found in the PATH.


If you really want to override the sudo command itself, thats doable too:

sudo() { command sudo env PATH=$PATH [email protected]; } 

The command builtin prevents the function from recursing (calling itself).

If you dont want to modify your bashrc, you can always do this:
sudo env PATH=$PATH python something

linux – sudo: python: command not found

…other approach.

when I got to this post, I was just looking to run:

python -m spylon_kernel install

as I ran the command above, I got a message telling me to use sudo in addition to what I was typing, such as

sudo python -m spylon_kernel install

as I did it, I got the sudo: python: command not found message from console, and adding –user such as:

python -m spylon_kernel install --user

was simply enough to get it done.

Notice that I did not use sudo command within the last command.
