Python >3.8 and open-interpreter

Hi everyone,
my target is to start using open-interpreter that works on Python3.10 onwards.
I'm on the last Zorin version, so Python is 3.8.
I already successfully installed Python 3.11.5, but if I set it up as default, Zorin starts having some problems, like the terminal not opening anymore.
I had to switch to a different TTY to restore the 3.8 as default.

If I try to simply install open-interpreter with

pip install open-interpreter

it replies with

ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement open-interpreter (from versions: none)
ERROR: No matching distribution found for open-interpreter

I know that the following command will install interpreter

pip install open-interpreter --ignore-requires-python


/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/requests/ RequestsDependencyWarning: urllib3 (1.26.16) or chardet (3.0.4) doesn't match a supported version!

TypeError: 'type' object is not subscriptable

So, is there a way to keep Python3.8 as default but run interpreter with the 3.11?

Hope you can help

Do you know about environments?

I'm not sure you can have a higher version of Python installed in a virtual environment than what you currently have in your system, can you?

My recommendation for this and to keep things cleaner and portable would be to use Docker.

As zenzen mentions. I would be wary of adding a higher version of Python than default. We often see poor outcomes of users installing different versions of Python then seeking help on the forum.
