I reported that the patch worked too soon. These crept up to me too but I hadn&#39;t had time to ask about it. Just letting you know that I&#39;m experiencing the same symptom.<br><br><div class="gmail_quote">On Sat, Aug 6, 2011 at 10:59 PM, Lev Givon <span dir="ltr">&lt;<a href="mailto:lev@columbia.edu">lev@columbia.edu</a>&gt;</span> wrote:<br>

&gt; Hi,<br>
&gt; I can&#39;t really help with uninstalling (but here is a patch which should<br>
&gt; fix spyder:<br>
&gt; <a href="http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?msg=5;filename=fix-ipython.patch;att=1;bug=636726" target="_blank">http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?msg=5;filename=fix-ipython.patch;att=1;bug=636726</a><br>


<br>
</div></div>Although this patch does enable ipython 0.11 to start in spyder<br>
2.0.12, there still seem to be some problems:<br>
<br>
- When I try running a script in the &quot;current ipython&quot;, I observe the<br>
  following exception:<br>
<br>
/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/spyderlib/widgets/externalshell/startup.py<br>
in runfile(filename, args, wdir)<br>
    112     glbs = globals()<br>
    113     if &#39;__ipythonshell__&#39; in glbs:<br>
--&gt; 114         glbs = glbs[&#39;__ipythonshell__&#39;].IP.user_ns<br>
    115     glbs[&#39;__file__&#39;] = filename<br>
    116     sys.argv = [filename]<br>
<br>
AttributeError: &#39;InteractiveShellEmbed&#39; object has no attribute &#39;IP&#39;<br>
<br>
- Created variables don&#39;t appear in the variable explorer.<br>
<br>
Is the patch supposed to fix these?<br>
