(running PsychoPy on OS X 10.8.5)
I need to revert to 1.81.03 on my Mac (for whatever reason, that’s the last version that runs stably on any of my computers). Usually, I have no problem doing this reversion, (installing the standalone 1.81.0 and then upgrading to 1.81.03 via zip file) but I’m now getting the message when I try to install the zip file: “could not move existing PsychoPy installation (permissions error)?”. I tried running PsychoPy from Terminal with “sudo”, but this causes the message “Psychopy2 Error” to pop up and the following message in Terminal:
localhost:~ markscott$ sudo /Applications/PsychoPy2.app/Contents/MacOS/PsychoPy2 Traceback (most recent call last): File "/Applications/PsychoPy2.app/Contents/Resources/__boot__.py", line 429, in <module> _run() File "/Applications/PsychoPy2.app/Contents/Resources/__boot__.py", line 362, in _run exec(compile(source, path, 'exec'), globals(), globals()) File "/Applications/PsychoPy2.app/Contents/Resources/psychopyApp.py", line 7, in <module> from psychopy.app._psychopyApp import * ImportError: No module named psychopy.app._psychopyApp 2016-09-27 13:51:44.763 PsychoPy2[682:a07] PsychoPy2 Error
Doing this also corrupts the 1.81.0 installation - when I try to run it after doing this sudo attempt, it also pops up the “PsychoPy2 Error” message. I’ve gone through this pattern a few times, so it’s not a one off. I’m not very techy, so I could easily be doing something very stupid that’s causing this. For the time being I’ll reinstall 1.81.0 and stick with that; but I’d like to get to 1.81.03 which is my default version for my lab, so if anyone has suggestions, I’d love to hear them.
