Due to dropped support I had to install an old version of a board. Now the compile complains that 'python' is not found. Attached are screen images of the error msg, my $PATH and a screen snap of the python part of that path. It looks to be there via a link so I am confused. Info of python also in pics.

Typing python -V at command line gives 3.10.4 which means python exec was found, so why can't the arduino compile process find it. I can imagine arduino messing with paths and such but where? Picture is proof python is found and executable.
