Bug Description

With Python only in "/usr/local/bin", byobu-config fails to start because of the hardcoded /usr/bin/python shebang line.

So this bug and https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/byobu/+bug/988471 are in direct opposition...

What's the right answer?

Re-opening: as stated in bug 988471, it should probably use "env" by default for the source "installation", but replace it with a fixed path to python during installation (for distributions), defaulting to /usr/bin/python.

The comment from bug 988471:
"""
Ideally, your development (i.e. vcs trunk) version would use /usr/bin/env but the distro-installed version would use /usr/bin/python.
"""
