It sounds like you didn't have distribute installed. If you install
that, and try installing IPython again, you should get shortcuts.


We don't know of a way to avoid that requirement on Windows - any help
on that front would be great.

ipython --pylab

For any profile (I don't think we have a scipy profile):
ipython --profile foo
