I'm trying to run some basic scripts on Linux (Debian), however no python can be found.
Both Python 2 and 3 are present on the system.
$ python -V Python 2.7.18
$ python3 -V Python 3.8.5

strace is seems that
fuscript binary searches for
$ /opt/resolve/libs/Fusion/fuscript -l py3 DaVinci Resolve Script Interpreter Copyright (C) 2005 - 2020 Blackmagic Design Pty. Ltd. ERROR: Language 'py3' is not available.
E.g. on Debian based systems this could be installed, if you're lucky and the exact version is available for your distribution.
sudo apt install libpython3.6
The binary looks into several paths one of them is
/usr/local/lib/libpython3.6.so. According to documentation this could be configured by
PYTHONPATH env variable. However it doesn't seem to have any effect.
Using pyenv any Python version can be installed (we need shared libraries -
env PYTHON_CONFIGURE_OPTS="--enable-shared" pyenv install 3.6.11
then create a symlink:
sudo ln -s $HOME/.pyenv/versions/3.6.11/lib/python3.6 /usr/local/lib/python3.6 sudo ln -s $HOME/.pyenv/versions/3.6.11/lib/libpython3.so /usr/local/lib/libpython3.6.so
Finally console should be working (Resolve will need a restart):
$ /opt/resolve/libs/Fusion/fuscript -l py3 -i DaVinci Resolve Script Interpreter Copyright (C) 2005 - 2020 Blackmagic Design Pty. Ltd. Cannot read termcap database; using dumb terminal settings. Py3>
