I'm trying to install some (old?) python scripts that use ColorANSI and
from the IPython module.  They exist on scientific linux 6.4, (ipython
0.10) but not on
ubuntu 13.04 (ipython 0.13.2). I guess something changed.....

Not having much luck on google, I came up with the following solution,
which appears
to work for me.  Hope this to be useful for somebody running in the same
Of course I'm happy to hear comments , especially if there's a better way
(the Term module wasn't used in this code so I didn't have to check that)

    # old code
    from IPython import ColorANSI
    from  IPython.genutils import Term
    tc = ColorANSI.TermColors()
    # new code
    from IPython.utils import coloransi
    tc = coloransi.TermColors()
