problems running V-REP on macOS Sierra

Postby Montana » 16 Oct 2016, 13:21

Hi,

I've been trying to use v-rep 3.3.2 on a MacBook Pro with macOS Sierra but it constantly crashes regardless the scene. To verify wether my computer was the problem, I tried on a different MacBook but the result was the same. Below you can find part of the problem report. Regards.

Re: problems running V-REP on macOS Sierra

Postby coppelia » 17 Oct 2016, 07:51

Hello,

thanks for reporting this. Can you try following:

1. in file v_rep.app/Contents/MacOS/system/usrset.txt, set all items in the debug section at the top to true
2. Start V-REP normally
3. After the crash, send us the file v_repApp/Contents/MacOS/debugLog.txt

Cheers

Hi,

I can't find the file usrset.txt in that folder, these are the files in that path:

defaultContactCallbackScript.txt
defaultCustomizationScript.txt
defaultGeneralCallbackScript.txt
defaultJointCtrlCallbackScript.txt
dfltscn.ttt
dltcscpt.txt
dltmscpt.txt
dlttscpt.txt

Hello, I'm running V-REP 3.3.2 rev3 on macOS Sierra, but I don't experience any crash.

Do you perform any operation to trigger the crash? Can you describe the steps to trigger this crash?

I have the same problem. I never used V-Rep before but would love to now.

I downloaded different versions but none won't "immediately" crash.

It is not even necessary to do anything to crash it. My scene is totally empty and after about 2 minutes the program crashes.
It also got some problems with loading the models ("Model folder not found") where normally the robots are shown.

With Windows on bootcamp on the same MacBook (Pro Retina Early 2015) I have absolutely no problems to run the program!

So, it seems the problem is linked somehow to the autosave functionality. In the case of Montana, it seems also that the file system/usrset.txt is not generated (should be generated automatically if not present). Which makes me think that this could all be linked to a file access problem.

In any case, can you try to manually create that system/usrset.txt file with following content:

I have set the variable autoSaveDelay to 0, which effectively disables autosave.

The first few lines in above file also allow you to turn on/off some debugging switches.

Can you tell me if that makes a difference? By the way, you both have V-REP 3.3.2 rev3?

Cheers

Hi Coppelia,
it seems to work now!
Thanks a lot!

But it still doesn't show the robot models.
On the left (Model browser) there is a folder icon with the "name" "Model founder not found". (see in the picture)

Image

But when I am opening a standard scene from the "scenes" folder with robots inside, there is no problem and the robots are there.

BTW I am using "V-REP PRO EDU V3.3.2 rev3"


For everyone having problems to find the right directory:
1) right-click on vrep (application icon you use to start the application)
2) show package contents (or how it is named in english :D)
3)
Contents/MacOS/system/

4) create the usrset.txt with the content provided by Coppelia in the last post

Hi Coppelia,

what could be the reason why the model folder is missing?
Do you know how to fix it?

Cheers

Re: problems running V-REP on macOS Sierra

Postby coppelia » 20 Oct 2016, 13:11

Ok, thanks for helping put the finger on the problem Benno. It seems the problems are linked to files/folders that cannot be accessed because of file attributes that the MacOS appends to files downloaded from the internet. You can strip away those file attributes with:

Code: Select all

xattr -c -r *


or even better with

Code: Select all

sudo xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine *


(to only strip away the annoying attributes)

Make sure you run above from the console in the V-REP folder. This made the trick for Benno at least.
On our machines, we also have the same file attributes when downloading something from the internet, but we don't have any crashes, so the problem is also linked to some computer specific settings I guess.

Montana, can you confirm that above solves your problem too?

Cheers
