I had nothing in /usr/local/bin at all so I created the pylint file as you suggested. On first run it failed as I don't have python in /usr/local/bin either...
Updated the pylint script to:
#!/usr/bin/python3 # -*- coding: utf-8 -*- import re import sys from pylint import run_pylint if __name__ == '__main__': sys.argv = re.sub(r'(-script\.pyw|\.exe)?$', '', sys.argv) sys.exit(run_pylint())
run chmod +x /usr/local/bin/pylint and all seems to be well now.
