  1. Mr Murthy,
    do not forget the apt update!

    Great app. I have been looking for a reasonable installation of Python 2.x on my android 7.1.2 TV box and now I have it.

    I see that there is a termux script starter at boot but not sure how to make my script wait one hour and run again and never quit as long as the device is on, nor any idea what to use in the header of the script (like bash or sh)

    also noteworthy is that if you install python2 apparently pip is called with “pip2”
