Sage 5.7 included an upgrade to IPython, and the old IPython files were no longer compatible with the new version. So now Sage looks in ~/.sage/ipython-0.12/ for configuration.
Thanks for the reply. I am still struggling with it. I've created a configuration file with " ipython profile create". I've noticed it was in the wrong place (it was not read at start up), so I've moved "ipython_config.py" from "~/.sage/ipython-0.12/profile_default/" to "~/.sage/ipython-0.12/profile_sage/". The file is read on start up, as I had some syntax errors and had some tests.
From a newly generated config file, "uncommenting" the line "c.PromptManager.out_template = 'Out[\\#]: '" has no effect. Same for the line "c.TerminalInteractiveShell.colors = 'Linux'". The file is read, as if I remove a single quote, I get an error message.
