My issue pertains as well. Not able to save profile. “TypeError: Can’t mix strings and bytes in path components”2023-11-18 at 23:37 #139782
OK I’ve been fighting with this damn thing for too long. Time to ask for help. At every turn there’s something that isn’t covered by any of the walkthroughs or guides. It’s maddening.
I’ve switched back to ventura from sonoma and have so far managed to get python installed (but nobody mentions that python doesn’t install the command line tools anymore). So I went and installed those too.
So after installing python I had to update the #PATH for it. So I did that. Then I tried the Python install. No errors reported, but no application found anywhere on my system. I looked in the package folder for X-Code and it wasn’t in there either.
So I thought, let use this homebrew thing and see if it works. Well, it managed to install itself (uisng the .pkg files) and then displaycal and it certainly seems far more intuitive than the other methods……. HOWEVER!
The home brew page says that :
If displaycal asks for argyll-cms, do not choose to download.
Instead, select “Browse” and point displaycal to your $HOMEBREW_PREFIX/bin.
Except that, me being unfamiliar with all this, has no idea where to find this folder and no internet searches have been able to help me find it on my mac.2023-11-19 at 13:31 #139791
Sorry, but what do you mean? Did you recompile old classic DisplayCAL CAL on Ventura? Use bundled pkg. The issue on Sonoma with classic DIsplayCAL is some Cocoa lib crashing.
Sonoma using Erkan’s port to Python3 seems to work although measurement report seems non functional.2023-11-19 at 22:50 #139799
It means everything loaded through python3 using homebrew, but the displaycal app couldn’t find the argyllCMS executables and when I loaded argyll through the terminal it hid the files on me.
I was following the homebrew instructions that told me not to download the files and just point to the path where there are. But the terminal install of argyllcms hides the files where I couldn’t access them through the find argyll executables menu in the app.
What solved it was saying f’your instructions and redownloading argyll and pointing the app to where it could find them.2023-11-24 at 23:55 #139862
It’s such a shame that there is no updated displaycal for macOS any more. If I could, I would compile a proper dmg so everyone could just install and use it instead of having to fumble around with pythons.2023-11-27 at 17:52 #139879
Need a bit of help. I can get this script to run fine on my M1-M2 machines but trying to get my last gen iMac intel to work has failed. I am getting the same RuntimeError: Need Python version >= 3.8 <= 3.11, got 3.12.0.
I set my global setting using pyenv but it is still giving my an error. Anything I can do?2023-11-27 at 19:59 #139880
Got it: there was some leftover files in my library folder that had to be removed. Running through python 11 now.2023-11-28 at 19:36 #139883
Still getting error on the measurements on my side.
I only get a grey patch at the beginning and then this error : “Aprox. fwd matrix unexpectedly singular”
Any chance the native MacOS app will be compatible with Sonoma ?
