I followed the instructions on the website Installation — PsychoPy v2023.2.3 and could install Psychopy in Linux (Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS, 64 bits, GNOME 42.5). However, I cannot open Psychopy yet. I have the following versions:
python --version: Python 3.9.13
pip --version: pip 22.2.2 from /home/usuario/anaconda3/lib/python3.9/site-packages/pip (python 3.9)
psychopy --version: PsychoPy3, version 2023.1.2 (c)Jonathan Peirce 2018, GNU GPL license
When I run the command suggested in the website
conda activate psychopy
the environment seems to be activated, i.e., the terminal changes from (base) to (psychopy).
However, when I execute “psychopy” to open it, nothing happens.
I tried some solutions from other posts, but it seems that didn´t worked for me:
- when I type “psychopyApp.py”, the outcome is that the order was not found
- when I typye “psychopy --builder &”, the outcome seems to be a random number (e.g., 8578 or 8609)
Other posts suggest installation via a virtual environment for python 3.8. But I don’t want to re-install psychopy just yet, as the installation seems to have worked fine, but I don’t know how to open the builder :/.
I would really appreciate any help. Thanks in advance!
I have encountered the same problem as you and even attempted to solve it in a similar manner. If you happen to find a solution, would you mind sharing it with me? It would be greatly appreciated!
Here are my installation steps:
- conda env create -n psychopy -f psychopy-env.yml
- conda activate psychopy # the terminal changes from (base) to (psychopy)
- psychopy # nothing happens
- psychopyApp.py # the order was not found
- psychopy --builder & # 6487
" psychopy-env.yml " :
- pyparallel; platform_system != “Windows”
- SoundFile; platform_system == “Windows”
I don’t know how to run Psychopy 2023.1.2 on Ubuntu 22.04. After reading many posts and not finding a solution, I decided to follow the instructions at this post: How to install PsychoPy 2022.2.4 on Ubuntu 22.04 using virtualenv
It worked fine in my computer, so now I can work with Psychopy 2022.1.4.
In case I find a solution, I’ll let you know.
Thank you so much! I was pleasantly surprised by your prompt reply. Following the installation steps on the blog you shared with me, I was finally able to successfully install Psychopy 2022.1.4. Your sharing is greatly appreciated and I will definitely keep you updated if I discover a way to install the latest version.
