[SOLVED] Ipython indentation Error


I get this error every time I start IPython2 in my home directory.  If I start if from any other directory, there is no error.  Any ideas on how to fix this?

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/IPython/", line 43, in <module>
    from .config.loader import Config
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/IPython/config/", line 16, in <module>
    from .application import *

Re: [SOLVED] Ipython indentation Error

Dumb question - you don't have a file in your home directory, do you? I've gotten busted by that type of problem more times than I care to admit.

Re: [SOLVED] Ipython indentation Error

I realize this is old.  I kept having the same problem, and when I searched the forums, found my old thread.

So, yeah, I had a in my home directory. I removed it and everything works like a charm!  Marking as solved.
