(pygame parachute) Segmentation Fault


#1

Hello,

I’m running Psychopy v1.84.2 on a Lenovo ThinkPad T420, with Ubuntu 17.04.

I currently cannot run any code (including the demos) due to this error:

Cannot connect to server socket err = No such file or directory
Cannot connect to server request channel
jack server is not running or cannot be started
JackShmReadWritePtr::~JackShmReadWritePtr - Init not done for 4294967295, skipping unlock
JackShmReadWritePtr::~JackShmReadWritePtr - Init not done for 4294967295, skipping unlock
Fatal Python error: (pygame parachute) Segmentation Fault

I could previously run code with this system and distribution, but now it seems I can’t. I’m having difficulty understanding where the problem is, even after searching online.

Any ideas?
Cheers,
Jon

Update: I re-installed Python 2.7 (I’m under the impression that Psychopy on Linux is dependent on the system Python [unlike on WIndows where it uses it’s own]). I then got a missing module “future” error, I installed that and now all seems to be fine. Perhaps co-incidentally, at the same time, I also drastically reduced the amount of tabs I had open in my browser, could it also have been a memory issue?

I may delete this thread as I’m not entirely sure it’s helpful to anyone.

Cheers,
Jon
