    • You also need to do these steps to make python visible to the Terminal after install:
      • Ctrl+Alt+T
      • Type “shell” (without the “” marks) then press ENTER
      • Type “vim /etc/environment
      • Go down to the line (with arrow keys) that starts with “PATH=
      • Make it instead start with “PATH=/usr/local/conda3;” and then keep the rest of the stuff to the right
      • Press Ctrl+Z, then if it asks you to save, respond YES
      • Now if you reopen Ctrl+Alt+T and shell you should be able to just type “python” and it will start python.
    • If the above instructions don’t work or are confusing, just wait until next week, and we can get it all figured out at the start of class
