Creating Virtualenvs - Error - Ubuntu


I have pycharm installed on Ubuntu and I am trying to use it for Django.

On my Ubuntu install I have virtualenv and virtualenvwrapper installed and working.

When I go to configure interpreter and create virtualenv in Pycharm I choose my python 2.7.4 and I create the env.

it errors at the top of the output but appears to work at the bottom of the error. I have done something wrong or is there something I should be doing?

The following command was executed: –never-download –distribute /home/sayth/.virtualenvs/Strategy

The error output of the command:

Traceback (most recent call last):
