better yet, don't change /usr/bin/python since that could break your linux
install, instead, first make sure you're not running in a python3
virtualenv (`which python` should print /usr/bin/python), then add a
symlink python to python3 in your PATH, putting it in ~/bin or ~/.local/bin
and making sure those get added to PATH in ~/.profile:
mkdir -p ~/.local/bin
ln -s /usr/bin/python2 ~/.local/bin/python

then edit ~/.profile and make sure it has something like:
# set PATH so it includes user's private bin if it exists
if [ -d "$HOME/.local/bin" ] ; then
