[IPython-User] ipython installation on osx 10.6.8

Your installation is probably fine.
IPython has two color schemes. The default color scheme on OSX is
'lightbg', because the default terminal on OSX is black-on-white.
To change the colors to the dark-background (called 'Linux' for some
reason), set it at IPython startup:
$> ipython --colors=linux
or from inside IPython with the `%colors` magic:
In : %colors linux
or set it permanently in your ipython_config.py:
# initialize default config, if you haven't already:
$> ipython profile create
and find the line with 'c.TerminalInteractiveShell.colors', and
uncomment it, changing it to:
c.TerminalInteractiveShell.colors = 'Linux'
