Moving WORKON_HOME produces error
I installed virtualenwrapper and by mistake set WORKON_HOME to ~/virtualenvs (mistake: not hidden). I sourced my ~/.bashrc file, and then realised the mistake.
I tried fixing this by deleting the ~/virtualenv folder and changing my ~/.bashrc to have WORKON_HOME=~/.virtualenvs (with the period). The logic I had was: I've just destroyed the environment, so it must be recreated.
When I sourced my now changed ~/.bashrc, I get the following:
stevedore.extension error calling 'user_scripts': [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/jon/virtualenvs/initialize'.
So in spite of changing WORKON_HOME and re-sourcing my .bashrc, virtualenvwrapper still looks for things in the old (now deleted) place.
I thought I could be extra smart and just pip uninstall everything. I uninstalled virtualenv, virtualenvwrapper, stevedore. I then reinstalled. Same problem.
In summary: 1. I expected that removing the changing the WORKON_HOME should have it recreated. 2. I expected that uninstalling everything would return my system to the state before it had been installed.
