Spyder IDE was working fine on both Ubuntu 12.04 in both laptops(HP mini & old Compaq Evo610c) After trying to install python notebook, Spyder stopped working. However Pyhton 2.7.3 works fine. I noticed one sgment of Error:
File "/usr/local/lib/pyhton2.7/dist-packages/path.py". line, 122, in version=pkg_resources.require('path.py').version
so it expects /path.py under
/usr/local/lib/pyhton2.7/dist-packages There is no Spyder or spyder folder here
However there is a inside the path:
the following folders: spyderlib and spyderplugins ....but NO 'path.py' file
I have re-installed spyder and purged it several times. Have tried re-intalation with Ubuntu Software Center, Synaptic Package Manager and command line. Same problem with pathway. No 'path.py' file installed. Thank you for any help and/or suggestions.
