I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but in /usr/bin/
there is a symbolic link named 'python' that points to a python
version in the same directory. I had the same issue and just
redirected the pointer (deleted the old one and created an new one
with the same name that pointed to the python version I wanted to use
when invoking 'python'). Having said that, the other python version is
still installed...(which was no problem at all in my case).
