MAC OS Installation

I am trying to install CW on macOS High Sierra version 10.13.6, python 2.7.15 without luck. I followed the instructions in the documentation but once I launch CW capture I get the following errors:

WARNING:root:PySide or PyQtGraph not installed, disabling support for pyqtgraph parameters

Traceback (most recent call last):

ImportError: No module named PySide.QtCore

Any help is appreciated.


It looks like you don’t have PySide installed. You should be able to install it via homebrew: brew install pyside or if that fails Pip pip install -U PySide. If you install via Pip, you may also need to run additional commands so that Python knows where PySide was installed to:
