pymover = PyMOL_Mover() hangs IPython?

I followed the instructions here ( to setup the PyMol Mover. But when I try to execute

pymover = PyMOL_Mover()

my IPython session hangs. This statement never finishes execution.

I am using Ubuntu 14.04.1, 64bits, and PyRosetta r48.

Any idea on what's the problem here? I can provide more specs about my system if needed.

Just to double check: have you called rosetta.init() at first? Also, does the same script works from regular Python (i.e. not iPython)?

I did call rosetta.init() first.
The problem does not occur on regular python nor on IPython. It only occurs in IPython Qt Console.
For regular python and regular IPython the PyMol Mover works fine.

Thank you for info! Not sure what to make of this: only thing that PyMOL mover do is sending some UDP packets and i do not see how this could be interfering with Qt console. Does Qt console run by the same user/privileges as regular terminal?

I wouldn't imagine why Qt console would run with different privileges. Do you know how I can test this?

Also, maybe you (or someone else) could try using PyMol Mover with IPython Qt console and see if they can reproduce this issue.

Also, in case it helps, I am using Python 2.7.6, IPython 1.2.1, IPython Qt console 1.2.1.

This issue is a shame, since IPython Qt console with PyMol Mover would be very comfortable.
