Precompiled NEURON 7.5 install on Sierra - not quite successful

Post by neuromau » Sat Jul 28, 2018 8:55 am

Hello, after installing the precompiled NEURON 7.5 app on Mac 10.12.6 Sierra, it looks like installed but the programs don't launch.

If I click the nrngui or neurondemo icon in the Applications / NEURON folder, no GUI loads. Only a bash shell loads and just says "-e" and nothing else, and it seems to hang.

If I open a Mac Terminal and call nrniv or nrngui, nothing loads and the terminal hangs. Then, when I go to close the terminal, it gives me a warning message about an nrniv process being active, but that's the only indication I have that anything did load (the terminal prompt does not show any neuron banner, the prompt icon doesn't change to indicate being inside a neuron environment, the terminal itself seems unresponsive, and no GUI windows/menus open).

Any idea what might be wrong? Thanks.

Suggest using the latest alpha version, which is the candidate for becoming the new standard distribution. Automatic configuration is much more robust than with 7.5.
