I am looking into Python and its environments. On Mac Mavericks I ran into trouble when trying to start IPython with console or notebook. The (I)Python I’m using is from Anaconda.
initially caused a lot of error spamming my terminal.
After snooping around it turns out that the problem is the LANG variable being set automatically in the terminals.
locale reveals that the LANG is not set.)
My fix was to turn this automagic setting off:
In iTerm2: Preferences > Profiles > Terminal > Set locale variables automatically
In Terminal: Preferences > Settings > Advanced > Set locale environment variables on startup
