I tried turning the ‘show console output’ option off for coder, but it didn’t change the console output.
I hope somebody can help me, under windows it’s working like a charm.


We strongly recommend you use the Standalone package instead of your own python.

You may be able to get more information on what exactly went wrong by pasting this into the terminal:

cat ~/.psychopy3/last_app_load.log

Thanks jon!
I did and it’s working great.
Thanks for all the good work.
