Panda 1.7.0 on mac


I used Panda3d before when I was still doing windows and I never had any trouble but now I’m having trouble running it on my mac. Is there any starter guide for running it on Mac OS X?

Even the examples don’t run out of the box!

P.S. Loving the new Logo :smiley:

The examples run fine for me. Can you show us what happens when you try?


cd ‘/Developer/Examples/Panda3D/Roaming-Ralph/’ && ‘/usr/bin/pythonw’ ‘/Developer/Examples/Panda3D/Roaming-Ralph/’ && echo Exit status: $? && exit 1
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/Developer/Examples/Panda3D/Roaming-Ralph/”, line 11, in
import direct.directbase.DirectStart
ImportError: No module named direct.directbase.DirectStart

Can you give the output of the following commands?

which python
readlink /usr/bin/pythonw
/usr/bin/pythonw -V
cat /Library/Python/2.5/site-packages/Panda3D.pth

So it tries to use the wrong python version?

which python
cat /Library/Python/2.5/site-packages/Panda3D.pth

How to make sure it uses the right version?

Use ‘ppython’.

I knew this :confused: Why I didn’t use it…
