Hello. I’m new to Linux in general, but have a questions specific to python installation on Parrot OS. I can see that Python is installed by default. I can find that there are folders for python2.7, 3 and 3.9 in /usr/lib but only commands python3 and python3.9 are recognized, not python2.7. So whats up with that?
Also, Installed pip as afaik it didnt come pre-installed, so after installing it I checked pip list and found that many packages are listed. Why does pip recognize these if they weren’t installed by it? What are these packages used for? Do I need them? Is there a guide or a list over all the pre-installed packages and what they are meant for?
Finally, with regards to both of the questions above, if I wanted to uninstall python and python libraries/dependencies, how can I do so? My idea is that since I dont understand the pre-installed python configuration, I would like to get rid of it, and preferably install a new one in its own virtualenv.
