[IPython-dev] %gui wx completely borked on Ubuntu 12.04, how about other OSes?

Hi all,

I just noticed that '%gui wx' (or --gui wx at startup) goes into an
infinite loop of this error message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "_ctypes/callbacks.c", line 314, in 'calling callback function'
  File "/home/fperez/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/IPython/lib/inputhookwx.py",
line 128, in inputhook_wx3
    ea = wx.EventLoopActivator(evtloop)
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'EventLoopActivator'

Has anyone else noticed this?  It's not just me, as I found it
reported against ubuntu:


Is it working on osx/windows/ other linuxes?
