I assume this task is about:

tools.paws@jupyter-john-vandenberg-3239244:~$ activate                                                                                    
bash: /srv/pwb/bin/activate: Permission denied

No, that's expeceted - you are generally expected to do source /srv/pwb/bin/activate. Also it is already activated by default (try which python), so this isn't about this.

This is about the fact that when you open a terminal it doesn't really make it clear that pwb is installed and how you can run scripts.

I've started a walk through intended for GCI
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:John_Vandenberg/GCI_walk-through

I suggest adding pwb.py to the PATH one way or another.

ok, I've added /srv/pwb to path too, so pwb.py is in path now.

I wanna reword it to be more comprehensive and then close this.

Perhaps we can close this task ? ping @yuvipanda

@Chicocvenancio, what's necessary to fix this task? I understand the main issue is to make easier to know that Pywikibot is available in PAWS, no?
