sudo easy_install ipython[zmq,qtconsole,notebook,test]
and got error:
ipython 0.13 has no such extra feature 'qtconsole'
here's the video:
Help is much appreciated.
setuptools' extra features (the bits in square brackets) are to install extra dependencies. There isn't a 'qtconsole' feature, because PyQt/PySide can't be installed from PyPI, as far as I know. So that message is expected.
The video appears to show you successfully starting and using the Qt console with Python 3 and IPython 0.13. It's not clear that there's any problem.
Thanks for the quick reply!
The problem is I dont' get any visulalizations of the data.
In the video you'll see No joy running ipython3-qtconsole
and here running ipython3 qtconsole --pylab
again no joy/ no visualization
Compare to demo video:
Perez gets the graphic, I don't.
Your help is much appreciated.
ipython3-qtconsole is the name of the package in Ubuntu, not the command.
Note Fernando (in the demo) starts the qtconsole with ipython qtconsole --pylab inline - the 'inline' bit means that the plots will appear inside the Qt console. You appear to have paused the video just before he types inline.
ipython qtconsole --pylab inline
I'm not sure why you don't see any plots - if you use pylab without inline mode, plots should just pop up as new windows. If you try with inline mode, do you see the graphs?
(Sorry I didn't understand earlier - I didn't know your video had sound, and I was watching it quickly)
@pleabargain The window that pops up when you ran ipython3 qtconsole --pylab is the qtconsole.
ipython3 qtconsole --pylab
I agree with @takluyver that it's a bit odd you didn't get a popup window with the plot. Try again with ipython3 qtconsole --pylab=inline, or try running %pylab inline within the IPython session to switch to the inline graphics.
ipython3 qtconsole --pylab=inline
