find /opt -name

as root. If it returns NO results, you will have to run this instead:

find / -name 2> /dev/null

But if it returns ONE result, take that result and extract the path. Say it 


then the path you want is /this/that (without the / at the end). Edit 
/etc/ and add this line to the end:


Save your changes, run ldconfig again, and hopefully python3 will now work.

If ldconfig gives you any errors, tell us what they are.
