OS: MacOSX 10.11.6
PsychoPy version: 3.1.2
Standard Standalone?: No, anaconda
I want to be able to import the pylink module, to incorporate eyetracking in the experiments I’m running.
What did you try to make it work?:
1- Installed Eyelink Dev kit
2- Installed Anaconda3
3- Created conda environment for psychopy (conda create -n psypy3 python=3.7.1)
4- Activated conda environment (conda activate psypy3)
5- Installed psychopy3 and all it’s dependencies as described here using conda install and pip commands: https://www.psychopy.org/download.html#conda
6- I can launch the psychopy3 GUI successfully (pythonw psychopyApp.py)
7- tried to install pylink using
conda install -c auto pylink --> did not work, I got an error in the terminal: “the following packages are not available form current channels: …” --> it might also be not the “pylink” I’m looking for, see point 8.
8- tried to install pylink using
pip install pylink --> this installs a module also called “pylink” but inherits different functions: https://github.com/LionelDarras/PyLink
9- tried to import pylink using:
Step 9 also, didn’t work. It closed my PsychoPy and gave an error in the terminal: “Pylink: could not load module tracker!”
10- I tried to copy pylink folder into to my virtual environment packages folder (˜/anaconda3/envs/psypy3/lib/python3.7/site-packages/).
11- Tried to run gcwindow_main.py after doing point 10 but got this error: "Import: bad magic number in ‘pylink’: v’l\x0c\r\n’ "
On the SR support forum, all the getting started info is on the standalone use of PsychoPy. Is there a way to make it work for PsychoPy within anaconda?
