Months ago, I installed Python 2.7 on my MacBook Pro (OS 10.8.5) and was using IDLE to run programs for classes I was taking on Udacity. One morning IDLE would no longer start, it would just bounce around on the dock and then close. I was eventually able to get things working again by installing Python 3.3 and using that IDLE.
A few days ago, I tried to get 2.7 working again by uninstalling all versions of Python and reinstalling using Macports. (To uninstall, I simply deleted the Python folders in my application folder, the Python.framework file in /Library/Frameworks and some symlinks in /usr/local/bin.
Now no version of Python is working for me. When I try to start IDLE, I get the following error message in the Console:
2/7/14 10:28:02.556 PM com.apple.launchd.peruser.502: ([0x0-0xc80c8].org.python.IDLE) Exited with code: 1
The Python in the terminal still works, by the way. I also tried installing another IDE, PyCharm, but that doesn't work either (I get a message saying No Python interpreter selected).
I think I may have royally screwed things up by installing multiple package managers while first trying to get Python working on my machine: PIP, Homebrew, Macports. I did not realize at the time that these package managers would be so tricky to uninstall. Any tips on how to get everything working again would be deeply appreciated!
