Frequently asked questions¶
How can I use Pyzo with a virtual env?¶
To use Python interpreters from a virtualenv in Pyzo, set the environment
VIRTUAL_ENV in the shell configuration, and
set the interpreted
python. Note that the
$PATH is only
expanded from Pyzo version 4.4 (to be released).

Why is Matplotlib not interactive?¶
When working with Matplotlib, make sure you have
conda install pyqt). The shell should integrate it automatically.
Then, you need to tell Matplotlib to be interactive:
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt plt.ion()
Can I still distribute a conda environment together with Pyzo?¶
Yes, Pyzo detects interpreters relative to itself, so you can just create a conda environment, put the Pyzo binary in its root, and distribute that as a whole.
On Windows, after a conda update, numpy is broken, and the IDE won’t start¶
This has been an issue with that way that Pyzo worked previously, but should not occur anymore.
On OSX, after a conda update, Pyzo fails to start¶
This has been an issue with that way that Pyzo worked previously, but should not occur anymore. See https://bitbucket.org/pyzo/pyzo/issue/30.
Pyzo does not look native on Linux GTK¶
For various reasons, the Pyzo binaries do not come with the GTK theme. However, you can force Pyzo to use you system PySide/PyQt4 libraries. Note that this only works if you Python version is ABI compatible with the one used to freeze Pyzo. See the file ‘qt.conf’ for more information. Of course, you can also simply run Pyzo from source.
