rsb problem with python

Hi Amaan,
   Actually,  /home/peter/miniconda3/bin/python is a soft link to /home/peter/miniconda3/bin/python3.6 already! Does rsb not follow links?

Hey David!

It looks to me like Anaconda doesn't install the "alias" binaries specifying the version (for eg. both "python" and "python3.6"). I believe the fix in your case should be as simple as copying your existing binary with the following command:

cp /home/peter/miniconda3/bin/python /home/peter/miniconda3/bin/python3.6

I am running Ubuntu:

python -V
Python 3.6.1 :: Continuum Analytics, Inc.

This comes from an Anaconda installation. If I remove the path entry which causes that I get python 2.7, which is the default Ubuntu 16.04 version. Do I need to install Python 3.6?
