I think I must be missing something silly. I am trying to use ob-ipython in my org-mode files.

When I press C-c C-c I get Process Python not running.

Do I need to startup some process or something before I can use the installation? I have followed the directions as best as I could and double checked my steps.

I got the similar error, and I fixed it by adding python executable (symlinked to python3) on PATH.

If you look at source, you can see that function ob-ipython--launch-driver expect python.exe or python on PATH in order to create process.
