Error uninstalling `imageio`

Hi everyone,

I am basically very new to the whole world of coding - but would really apprecaíate your help.

I am trying to run psychopy in spyder using macOS Mojave 10.14, anaconda with python 2.7 (also tried 3.3) and the latest standalone psychopy version, I used the steps recommended here: http://www.djmannion.net/psych_programming/getting_started.html#windows for mac obv :wink: and get the following error:

Cannot uninstall ‘imageio’. It is a distutils installed project and thus we cannot accurately determine which files belong to it which would lead to only a partial uninstall.

tried running pip install psychopy pyglet pygame —ignore-installed ${imageio} which proudces and error with greentlet

Anyone able to help me?

Thanks a lot,
Luca

Also, if I just ignore the error and open spyder via the terminal
-> import psychopy
it tells me no module named psychopy and psychopy imported but unused!

I’d really recommend you start off with installing PsychoPy Standalone, where all the dependencies are set up correctly for you already
