Cura dev environment problem on OS X 10.8.5

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura dev environment problem on OS X 10.8.5


I'm on OS X 10.8.5 and I'm going to develop some widgets with wxPython.

Built and installed everything explained on https://github.com/daid/Cura

when I run


pythonw -m Cura.cura

I get this exception


load preferences from /Users/me/Library/Application Support/Cura/dev/preferences.ini
Traceback (most recent call last):

self = super(PowerSourcesNotificationsObserver, self).init()
AttributeError: 'super' object has no attribute 'init'

How can I fix this?

    Thanks Amedee,

    I've managed to successfully run Cura on my virtualenv by following the GOLD thread above. :-P

    I will also try to package by downgrading what's listed there.

    You've really saved me many hours ... and headaches!

    A rant about operating system is not opportune and does not help anybody -- in particular this issue is more about a mess in the python bindings dependencies than anything else.

    Let's continue to work on this as a community, making Cura a slicer of choice whatever the platform the end user wants to use.

    Note that the above problem seems to relate to pyobjc, not to Cura.

    I cannot really provide you with much assistance here. It works on our Mac build machine, not sure why. But as Nallath already pointed out (in a not so friendly way), developing on a Mac is tricky, we try to touch the build machine as little as possible to make sure the build environment does not break.
