Intel Python interface on Ubuntu

Intel Python interface on Ubuntu

I installed Intel distribution for Python on Ubuntu. However, I cannot find an interface. I am only running *.py files in the terminal. Is there any IDE available in this distribution for Linux? On Windows, I can open an Idle environment.

Hi Bruno,

We ship IDLE with our distribution on all platforms. On UNIX platforms, you can find IDLE inside <Intel_Distribution_for_Python-installation>/bin folder - it might be called idle3 if you've installed Python3. Also, we ship with IPython and Jupyter Notebook, i.e. if you're looking for an interactive shell or more of a browser-based UI, respectively.

Thanks,
Rohit

Dear Rohit,

Thank you very much for your feedback.

I found a file "idle3" on folder \opt\intel\intelpython3\bin.

However, I was not able to open the IDE.

How could I open the idle IDE?

Kind regards,

Bruno

Hi Bruno,

You can execute idle3 from terminal, that would spin-up the GUI (i.e. the IDE).

Thanks,
Rohit

Dear Rohit,

An error message is appearing:

      from: can't read /var/mail/idlelib.PyShell
      idle3: line 6: syntax error: unexpected end of file

How do I proceed?

Thanks a lot again,

Bruno
