SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Aren’t you missing the quotes " when assigning python_home?
That would be:
python_home = "/home//chatscrum/Django/ScrumMaster/venv"

Side note: When posting code or tracebacks here, please enclose them between lines of three backtick - ` characters. This means you’ll have a line of ```, then your code (or traceback), then another line of ```. This forces the forum software to keep your code (or traceback) properly formatted.

Side note #2: When asking for help with a traceback, it’s always helpful to include the code as well.

Please post your original file. Aside from the quotes issue mentioned previously, that line isn’t doing anything to help.
