pip? What version of macOS, Python, Spyder, Qt and PyQt are you running? Are you running it in a Anaconda environment/virtualenv?
conda activate basebefore running the
spydercommand. If that doesn't work, use
conda listto find the relevant versions of Qt, PyQt and Spyder. Did you just install Anaconda or was it on there previously? Has Spyder worked before on that machine? Do you have other versions of Python installed (besides system Python)? Also, let us know the output of
activate-ing your environment.
conda activate base, not "condo". In any case, if you type
jupyter qtconsole, does QtConsole work fine or does it have the same problem? I'm really not sure about that, since I don't recall getting a report of this previously and everything I can find on Google only talks about problems with
wxPython, not PyQt that Spyder uses.
in jupyter we get a bunch of errors trying.
@jterry94_gitlab Huh? What do you mean? Trying what? In Jupyter notebook, or another Jupyter application? Did you mean
jupyter qtconsole wouldn't launch either?
Preferences > IPython Console > Graphics > BackendAre you trying to run something that uses the
wxPythonGUI framework? Those errors seem associated with that. If you have issues in QtConsole as well, then it isn't a Spyder issue. Try it in the plain IPython interpreter (
ipython), and if that doesn't work, the standard
pythoninterpreter. If it doesn't work in the latter, then it has something to do with the environment on your machine; if it doesn't run in the fomer but does in the latter, then its an
IPythonissue and should be reported to them; if it works in plain
ipythonthen its a QtConsole issue and should be reported there. If it did work in Spyder on your other machines, then most likely you're just missing some package or other configuration it needs. Regardless, this doesn't really have anything to do with Spyder if its your own code and it doesn't work in other environments as well.
