[IPython-User] ipython-qtconsole missing

OK, that command works, but also simply "/home/usr/bin/ipython
qtconsole" works with Julian package which I run.

However I tried to integrate isympy
(https://github.com/sympy/sympy/blob/master/bin/isympy) in IPython
Unity launcher's quicklist. Again without success :D

Trying your snippet did not change anything unfortunately
(ipython.desktop excerpt):


[pylab Shortcut Group]
Exec=~/IPython --pylab

[isympy Shortcut Group]
Exec=bash -c "/usr/local/bin/isympy; read"
#Exec=~/IPython isympy

[qtconsole Shortcut Group]
Name=Qt Console
Exec=~/IPython qtconsole

[qtconsole-pylab Shortcut Group]
Name=Qt Pylab
Exec=~/IPython qtconsole --pylab

[pylab-inline Shortcut Group]
Name=Qt Pylab inline
Exec=~/IPython qtconsole --pylab --inline

~/IPython contents:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:/opt/intel/lib/ia32:/opt/intel/mkl/lib/ia32:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

if [ "$1" = "isympy" ]; then
    exec /usr/local/bin/isympy
    exec /usr/local/bin/ipython $@
