Empty folders upon macOS install


This feels like a silly question but I looked for a solution and found nothing.

  • I download the processing zip file
  • Uncompress it
  • Move the processing.app file (the only file in the zip file) to the application folder
  • Launch the app
  • Have a popup :
  • The app creates a Processing folder with five empty folders (examples, libraries, modes, templates, tools)

When I create an app with imports from core libs obviously I have an error…

I might made a mistake on the first install but I looked for libraries everywhere without finding them…

Thanks for your help !

Just to follow up, when I try to run a simple import I get this error :

No library found for processing.video
Libraries must be installed in a folder named 'libraries' inside the sketchbook folder (see the Preferences window).
The package “processing.video” does not exist. You might be missing a library.

I can’t find a library because it doesn’t seem to be installed…
