Running Python that uses turtle in c9?


I am trying to run some code that visualizes data on c9 using the turtle module in Python.

I followed these directions here: How to set DISPLAY in my workspace

And now when I run /opt/c9vnc/ from my /plugins/cloud9-vnc directory, I get something that looks like this.

OK so – yay? Not really. I have no idea what I’m doing. How would I run code from here? and more importantly: is this even what I really want?

All I really want to be able to do is type python3 and have it generate the graphic every 10-15 minutes without me needing to keep any windows open or anything. I mean, if I can get this whole virtual desktop thing working that would be fine too but I’ve been stuck on that page for a few hours now with no idea what to do.
