I had to wrestle a bit to get python3 installed on my linux box its  possible

are you able to start your venv?? try:

$ source venv/bin/activate

and see what happens. if it starts, try upgrading your version of pip

What I've gotten to is:
forrest at lapcritter:~/musx-1.0.0$ python3.9 --version
Python 3.9.1
forrest at lapcritter:~/musx-1.0.0$ python3.9 -m venv venv
Error: Command '['/home/forrest/musx-1.0.0/venv/bin/python3.9', '-Im', 'ensurepip', '--upgrade', '--default-pip']' returned non-zero exit status 1.

I thought it might work despite 'exit status 1' but

forrest at lapcritter:~/musx-1.0.0$ source venv/bin/activate
bash: venv/bin/activate: No such file or directory

although ~/musx-1.0/0/venv/bin
is in place.

on linux i installed python3.9 globally, but i still use virtual evinroments for different projects so each is able to install its own python packages etc.  a virtual environment is light-weight and takes maybe 20 seconds to set up and then everyhing is hygenic so there is no reason not to use them.  You can also download pycharm (jet brains, there is a free version) it will take care of the virtual environment setup for for you.

You mention putting it into 'a python virtual environment.' On a linux system, is there any particular advantage to doing it that way? Or should I just start up python 3 and go from there?
