Hello, I can't seem to change my python interpreter in spyder on my mac (I installed the stand alone version). No matter what path I enter I get a message "Invalid file path" and none appear in the drop down.

Hi @/all! We have a new UX/UI designer part of our team and we have been working with her on a new logo for Spyder. Users opinion is always very important for us so we would like you to help us decide on the new logo. Here is the link with the official issue for voting.

Hello. I have a problem. An error ocurred while starting the kernel
Your Python environment or installation doesn't have the spyder‑kernels module or the right version of it installed (>= 2.0.1 and < 2.1.0). Without this module is not possible for Spyder to create a console for you.

You can install it by running in a system terminal:

conda install spyder‑kernels=2.0


pip install spyder‑kernels==2.0.*

Spider doesn't start the console. What can I do?

@ccordoba12 please take no offense. Is it true that anaconda has discoutinued updates for Spyder. If that is the case we need to use forge or standalone version to install. Sorry for mentioning you.
Carlos Cordoba
@srvmig, I don't know what happens with Anaconda, to be honest, but I hope they will resume updating Spyder at some point. Unfortunately, a lot of errors present in our 5.0.0 version (the last one available in Anaconda) are fixed now in 5.0.3. So the only way to get those fixes is by using Conda-forge or our installers, as you said

Hi I already have access to the spyder IDE through my Anaconda installation. Will installing Spyder outside of Anaconda (that is, directly onto my PC), break Anaconda or my access to Spyder through Anaconda?

How to update Spider 5 version or what is the command line to update spider?


I have Spyder installed in my office computer. If I try to open a new Spyder Window through Remote Desktop from somewhere else, it does not open up. But, if I leave a Spyder Window open at my office, then I can access it.

Is there a way to fix this issue?

Hi. I run Anaconda on a Mac. I updated to spyder 5 but it is lagging a lot. So I installed the Spyder app. This runs smoothly, but I cannot access the packages I installed under Anaconda.
