Thank you, Chris! I went to install Inkscape and got the following
py27-cython has the following notes:
To make the Python 2.7 version of Cython the one that is run when you
execute the commands without a version suffix, e.g. 'cython', run:
port select --set cython cython27
python27 has the following notes:
To make this the default Python or Python 2 (i.e., the version run by
'python' or 'python2' commands), run one or both of:
sudo port select --set python python27
sudo port select --set python2 python27
python37 has the following notes:
To make this the default Python or Python 3 (i.e., the version run by
'python' or 'python3' commands), run one or both of:
sudo port select --set python python37
sudo port select --set python3 python37
I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to choose? Thanks in advance for your
