How to install specific python version (Termux)


I am trying to install a specific version of python using termux (python 3.5) but it is downloading the latest version (Python 3.7.2-1) instead. Is there any way to specify what version to install?

The command I am using is very straightforward, but I haven’t found any way to specify version anywhere

pkg install python

To do what you intend…you can use the following command..

  1. First Make Sure that the package version you need to install exists… Use:
apt-cache madison [packagename]
  1. If the package version you’re trying to install exists, simply run:
apt-get install [packagename]=[DesiredVersion]

Not an easy way, but you can download source of the specific version and build it yourself. This works for me.
