Yesterday I tried to compile the master branch but found that now it requires python 3. Mint 19.2 has only 2.7. Any way I can avoid this? It is not easy fopr me to upgrade my home system.

That’s strange, Ubuntu 18.04 has python 3.6.7 preinstalled. ‘python3’ is also in the synaptic package manager so it may show up for Mint as well, if not here’s a fosslinux page for installing python3.

Will check tonight again, but my synaptic displays only 2.7. Maybe I do need to enable some specific repository?

It’s a ppa so download it, update apt and install it.

The problem is that I dont have internet at home. For small downloads I use my cell phone as modem, but that is for 2-3 mb
