I previously thought that was the issue with IPython, but today I tested again, here is what I did:
Python 2.7.3 (default, Apr 10 2012, 23:31:26) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
[<matplotlib.lines.Line2D object at 0x03068610>]
C:/Python27/python.exe -i C:/Python27/Scripts/ipython-script.py --pylab
Do you really want to exit ([y]/n)?
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:/Python27/Scripts/ipython-script.py", line 9, in <module>
load_entry_point('ipython==0.13.1', 'console_scripts', 'ipython')()
If you suspect this is an IPython bug, please report it at:
or send an email to the mailing list at [email protected]
You can print a more detailed traceback right now with "%tb", or use "%debug"
to interactively debug it.
Extra-detailed tracebacks for bug-reporting purposes can be enabled via:
one solution is:
(setq python-shell-interpreter "C:\\YourPython3Dist\\python.exe" python-shell-interpreter-args "-i C:\\YourPython3Dist\\Scripts\\ipython3-script.py console --pylab=qt")
console in the call of ipython-script.py is the important one!
In Python 3 with qt backend it works for me. I don't know how it works with py 2.7. (should be no problem if these arguments are supported for
