How To Install Python on Fedora 35

Install Python on Fedora 35

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Python on Fedora 35. For those of you who didn’t know, Python is a widely used, interpreted, object-oriented, high-level programming language with dynamic semantics. It is very friendly and easy to learn.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Python programming language on a Fedora 35.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 35 or Fedora 34.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
