Note: These instructions are for the Conda Python environment manager. They should be adaptable to Virtualenv installations or others as well.
Often after installing OS X upgrades plots created in IPython open behind all windows and cannot be tabbed to. The following instructions should fix this:
- Remove the current
pythonsymlink in the Conda environment's
- Create a new
pythonsymlink in that same directory that points to
- Uninstall the
ipythonpackage (it won't run at all after creating the symlink).
- Reinstall the
ipythonpackage. This should set everything up correctly to use the new
pythonlink created above.
Now IPython plots should open an icon in the Dock and can be tabbed to.
