What are you trying to achieve?:
My university has fairly annoying preferences for user control. It prefers that every user logs in using their own account, even when a shared lab account is available. I’ve developed a few experiments that involve playing sound files; however, the experiments break if the “sounddevice” library is used. When I have my IT department install PsychoPy on computers (again, my university has strange priorities and denies PIs admin access, so any program needs to be installed by IT), the default order is [sounddevice, PTB, pyo, pygame]. It’s trivial to change that order (to, say, [PTB, pyo, pygame, sounddevice]) for a single user and the settings are saved in a folder that is unique to that user. But changing that order for every user (say, 10) on every one of my lab devices (say, 8) is a lot.
Is there a way to ensure that all users on a single device (but across user accounts) have the same preferred order for audio devices? One idea I had would be to change this on installation, but I wasn’t sure how to accomplish this. Thanks!
