Right click collision for qtconsole in Windows #3002

I am using ipython for python3.3 in 32bit Windows7. Started the ipython through"ipython3 qtconsole --pylab=inline", the qtconsole will collide immediately when I made a right click in no exception.


No error message, and Windows pop a notices saying "python.exe has stop working.". My environment was installed through the following procedure:
1.python3.3 through windows32 binary installer.
2.ipython through windows32 binary installler.
3.ipython's dependence through pip utility.
4.numpy and matplotlib through windows32 binary installer.
PySide was used.


And does this only occur when you're using pylab?


yes. ipython3 qtconsole --pylab=inline


(So, to be clear, it works properly if you just start ipython3 qtconsole, right?)

Thanks for the extra info. It might be a problem with PySide. Beyond that, I don't have any ideas, so it'll have to wait for someone who knows more about Windows.


I've tried it just now, the same problem occurred when just start ipython3 qtconsole. Through right click is useless in ipython qtconsole, but chances are I misclick and resulting my whole work crashing. It's annoying.


I experienced the same problem, where "python.exe has stopped working" happened consistenly upon right clicking using qtconsole, with or without --pylab=inline. I removed PySide and installed PyQt4, and it does not happen anymore.


thanks for the report on the workaround, @simon-b.

Were you able to get around this @mayaa6, or is this still a problem for you?


Couldn't reproduce today (on 64bit Windows 7).

Python 3.3.5 (v3.3.5:62cf4e77f785, Mar  9 2014, 10:37:12) [MSC v.1600 32 bit (Intel)]
