PsychoPy backend causes OpenSesame Hang-up
I recently had to reformat my Kubuntu system and reinstalled OpenSesame. It worked previously without issue using PsychoPy backend. Now with a fresh system install and new install of OpenSesame I cannot run an experiment using the PsychoPy backend.
For clarification, when I hit any of the run buttons (windowed, fullscreen, quickrun) OpenSesame grays out fields as normal when an experiment begins. But that is as far as it gets. Here is the output from the run (including the output following me killing the experiment process to return control to the main OpenSesame window).
Python 2.7.12 * Type "help()", "copyright()", "credits()" or "license()" for more information. * Use the "print([msg])" function in inline_script items to print to this debug window. * Inspect inline_script variables when an experiment is finished. In : Starting experiment as ExperimentProcess-3 openexp._canvas.psycho.init_display(): waitblanking = True openexp._canvas.psycho.init_display(): monitor = testMonitor openexp._canvas.psycho.init_display(): screen = 0 Python seems to have crashed. This should not happen. If Python crashes often, please report it on the OpenSesame forum. item-stack: time: Mon Mar 20 15:37:25 2017
No window/full-screen comes on showing the stimuli. I've reinstalled various times with different versions of PsychoPy installed seperately and nothing changes this result. This is also just the initial 'welcome' experiment that OpenSesame defaults to when starting.
Thought I'd bring this up in case it is a new bug (I didn't see references to this anywhere on the forums or the rest of the internet).
Here is my system info list from within OpenSesame:
