Hi happy flamers…
I can t install the matchbox shader collection anymore on my machine. I think this happened after updating the OS because i already installed the shaders for an older flame version on this machine some time ago. Terminal now saying “env: python: No such file or directory”
I am on an intel iMac OSX Monterey 12.4. Found some help on the internet that I should try this:
“sudo ln -s /usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/python”
but then I get the error message:
“ln: /usr/bin/python: Operation not permitted”
Any idea or advise how to fix this?
I think that’s because Apple stopped shipping Python with OSX in latest versions.
You can verify this by running this in a terminal:
python --version && which python
python3 --version && which python3
If that doesn’t return anything, you need to either install python (e.g. with homebrew) or change the install script to use the python versions, that ships with Flame.
I checked this first:
root@ber-mac01s-iMac ~ # whereis python3
So python3 is on my machine.
did you found a solution for that issue ?
@Hicka and @norman : If you use the Logic Portal within Flame and the matchbox tab - use “/opt/Autodesk/presets/2023/matchbox/shaders” as the requested installation path and install. That is all. Of course “2023” is the version you need to consider for your machine.
