I’m new to Processing (and have limited experience with Python in general).
I’m trying to run my Python script and I’m getting this error message in the console:
Hmm. Can’t load native code to bring window to front using the absolute path: /Users/jenniferalmarine/Documents/Processing/modes/PythonMode/mode/libjniosx.dylib.
Hmm. Can’t load native code to bring window to front.
I moved my Python folder from Documents to a folder on my hard drive because Documents syncs with my iCloud account. When I first downloaded Processing and was going through a tutorial, it wouldn’t run a script and I read online that the syncing could be the issue so I moved it but now I’m getting this error.
macOS Big Sur (11.6)
Processing 3.5.4 (I’ve also tried Processing 4)
Edit: I tried finding my answer online. I found this thread but there doesn’t seem to be a resolution.
Sorry to hear it’s not working. I have never seen a message like yours.
Can you run some sample/test code like this:
rect(10, 10, 100, 100)
it should produce something like this:
I didn’t understand the part about moving your Python folder… I suppose moving the Python mode folder will break it. Could you try removing and re-installing the Python mode from the IDE (the Processing Editor)?
You can save your projects, called sketches, outside the Documents folder. A Processing project is always a folder with the same name as the main sketch file. In Python mode usually something like a folder called
sketch_21NNN and a file called
I have the same issue. I cannot run any sketch even the example given villares. Has anyone got the solution?
I’m using macOS 12.3.1 and Processing 4.0b8 (Python mode).
I have tried removing and reinstalling processing and python mode - no results.
Is this something that works in Processing 3.5.4? Or is it just Processing 4 beta that seems to have trouble?
I tried 3.5.4 and it worked without any issues. Thank you, @tabreturn! I think I’m going to stick to this version.
But I also found the fault with 4.0b8 - its P3D render. If I change it to default, 4.0b8 works too (with the exception that it will create a new sketch window every time I click “run” without closing the old one). Although, it does not explain why I could not run a simple sketch before…
