[IPython-User] questions about latex rendering in ipython with sympy

Hi,

Thanks for the info.  I have decided that there is a problem with my
install of ipython .12.  I have a couple of days ago installed ipython .12.
 It works as far as I can tell except for the sympy use.  That is, ipython
notebook --profile=sympy  has a problem:

 comerduncan% ipython notebook --profile=sympy
[NotebookApp] Profile u'sympy' not found.


comerduncan% which ipython
/usr/local/bin/ipython

What about sympy?

comerduncan% which isympy
/usr/local/bin/isympy

I had installed ipython and sympy a couple of days ago following the
recommendation on the IPython site.
On this mac (running Lion) the location of ipython and sympy are shown as
site-packages in /Library/Python/2.7/site-packages:

comerduncan% ls /Library/Python/2.7/site-packages

README pymongo-2.1.1-py2.7-macosx-10.7-intel.egg
easy-install.pth pyzmq-2.1.11-py2.7-macosx-10.7-intel.egg
ipython-0.12-py2.7.egg readline-6.2.1-py2.7-macosx-10.7-intel.egg
matplotlib-1.1.0-py2.7-macosx-10.7-intel.egg sympy-0.7.1-py2.7.egg
nose-1.1.2-py2.7.egg tornado-2.1.1-py2.7.egg
pexpect-2.4-py2.7.egg


So, given this info, what might be wrong with ipython's installation and
use with sympy?

Sorry for asking such basic questions...

I would appreciate some help/info to get me in the correct installed state.

Comer
