No python on ubuntu


i tried to install platformio on Xubuntu in vscode,
but it complains about missing python.

i clicked on add path and added it, but no luck.

i used current xubuntu (and ubuntu mate)
with phython 3.8 installed

Missing Python or missing python3-venv packet? Please post the full error message you get.

PlatformIO: Can not find working Python 3.6+ Interpreter. Please install the latest Python 3 and restart VSCode

Python 3.8.10 (default, Sep 28 2021, 16:10:42)
[GCC 9.3.0] on linux

…That shouldn’t happen. What happens when you install it per the installer script? (Redirecting...).

it indeed was a missing python3-venv

sudo apt install python3-venv

did the trick, tnx
