I am using PsychoPy on a Debian PC. Recently I updated from Debian Jessie to Stretch (Testing).
Since then everytime I try to display text via TextStim it leads to the program closing and displaying the following error message:
“Fatal Python error: (pygame parachute) Segmentation Fault”
Surprisingly everything else works - creating windows with only images, playing movies, playing audio files etc. But whenever a text should be drawn, it crashes. I already tried changing the font-parameter in the TextStim-call as well as copying the font files to the source folder (I read an older post on another forum suggesting this for general pygame problems) but it didn’t change anything.
I would be glad if someone had some ideas concerning the source of this problem and a way to fix it.
Thanks in advance.
