Render plot labels with LaTeX

Running Matplotlib v: 1.5.1 in Anaconda on OS X El Capitan, V 10.11.4
trying to render plot labels with LaTeX so I can use figures in my
thesis. However, whenever I uncomment the command 'usetex = true', I
receive an error similar to the below:

RuntimeError: LaTeX was not able to process the following string:
'lp'
Here is the full report generated by LaTeX:

I have MacTeX-2015 and LaTeX, dvipng and ghostscript are each on my
PATH. According to the instructions on
https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues/5076
<https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues/5076>I was able to
reproduce the code in a clean environment - so I assume there is nothing
wrong with any of the installations.

I've tried most of the suggestions I found on various mailing lists but
still received the same error.

Thanks,
Ruth Sims

Ruth, if you put the code from your first attachment in a file, and run
that file as a script from the command line instead of within ipython,
do you still get the error? It looks like even in your "clean
environment", some ipython startup code is being run (importing sympy,
etc.). There are also other places where pieces of old environment
might be getting pulled in, such as from a matplotlibrc file.
