Hey Aline,

Kimchi in its current state doesn't work with Python 3 which is why I explicitly stated Python 2.

For Kimchi to work with Python 3 we would need to get Python 3 versions of all the libraries that Kimchi uses and I looked in to this and there are one or two that are in use that are not yet compatible with Python 3.

So for the moment I would recommend explicitly stating python2 until we are able to get Kimchi working with Python 3.

Hey guys,

     This is a patch to change the #! line used in Kimchi from the ambiguous
     /usr/bin/python to a more specific and more portable /usr/bin/env python2.

I suggest to use "/usr/bin/env python"

     This enables users of distributions that have switched to the default python version
     to python3 to run Kimchi without having to go and manually change the line and at the
     same time allows people who have python installed to non default locations to also use
     Kimchi by setting the python2 environment variable.
