Pd2dsy_gui opens in terminal and there is no GUI

This is probably a noob issue, but I am having difficulties opening the pd2dsy_gui on a mac. It opens in terminal and there is no user interface. Please help!

Hi mirko!

I would be more than happy to help.

Did you follow this video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HwMpIXqVEKk

If so, could you share a screenshot of the terminal?

Here it is:

Which version of Mac OS do you have by the way?

And could you move the pd2dsyGUI folder to the inside of the Slavko folder and then try again?

I have put the pd2dsyGUI folder inside the Users/Slavko folder but it’s still giving me the same results.
I have Macbook Pro early 2015 with High Sierra 10.13.6

Ah I see, I think that pd2dsyGUI is not suited for OS that is older.
One of the lines in that screenshot reads “...(which was built for Mac OS X 10.15)...

So here are your options:

  • Update your OS (which I totally understand is not ideal)

  • Let me know if you don’t want to update the OS, and I can check in with the team about a workaround

  • Try plugdata! It allows you to flash the patch directly from the app itself :slight_smile:


Thank you Takumi.
I also had some Plugdata issues on my mac and I was unable to use it, so I switched to my Win10 computer and everything works fine there.

Glad to hear that you have a Windows computer for working with plugdata and pd2dsyGUI :slight_smile:
