[IPython-User] Fwd: [GitHub] show() blocks in pylab mode with ipython 0.10.1 [ipython/ipython GH-185]
Tue Oct 26 14:42:55 CDT 2010
Paul Ivanov just posted this minimally invasive change to fix the GTK
pylab bug in 0.10.1.
The change is a trivial one-line fix:
I'm posting here so affected users can just go and edit that one file
themselves for now, untill we roll the fix out.
I think we should roll a bugfix 0.10.2 so that distributions can
update and push the fix to their users, sooner rather than later.
I'll leave this for feedback for a few days, and unless I hear
otherwise I'll push the 0.10.2 with this single fix over the weekend.
If anyone knows of a better/more solid fix, I'm all ears. I don't use
pygtk myself *at all* so I'm the least qualified person to be doing
this (in case that wasn't already abundantly clear from the mess I
Many thanks to Mark Voorhies and Paul Ivanov for tracking this one down!

Keeping simple things simple - I can confirm that:
$ ipython -pylab -gthread
In : ax = subplot(111); ax.plot(rand(10)); show()
all work, without blocking with just one line change to the current
0.10.2 branch, by uncommenting gtk.set_interactive(False) after gtk is
imported on line 781 of Shell.py
