[SOLVED] How to Thonny package not installed using apt

Post by deepakdeshp » Mon Jan 14, 2019 12:54 pm

Hello,
I have to purge Thonny , in Synaptic it doesnt show as installed, that means it isnt installed through apt.
Thanks for any help

Not quite sure about this but it looks like there is an uninstall script (see: viewtopic.php?t=250917) :

Code: Select all

/opt/thonny/bin $ ls 
python3  python3.6  thonny  uninstall

Thank you. The following did the trick.

Code: Select all

sudo pip install --upgrade --force-reinstall thonny

Thonny runs with command mode but when I search for it from menu, it won't start when I click it's image.
I wonder why.

Sorry deepakdeshp, I wouldn't know why. Others may have an idea about what might be wrong.
