I wanted to update freecad to a more recent version, but now the brew installation fails for me (latest stable macOS + Xcode Versions). Any ideas what could be wrong?

Nothing is wrong. FreeCAD should be in

Re: FreeCAD 0.19: macOS Big Sur: stuck on launch

Hmm. It just told me that everything is up to date. Only a brew resinstall freecad made it update the git source as well.

Re: Python libs

Uhmm, now I started with a simple demo and it now croaks at the import FreeCAD
dynamic module does not define init function (initFreeCAD)

Re: Python libs

Found it. On my homebrew I had to add

Code: Select all

PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:/usr/local/Cellar/freecad/HEAD-135525a/lib:/usr/local/Cellar/freecad/HEAD-135525a/Mod
The FreeCAD stuff is in a dylib within the lib path.

Re: FreeCAD 0.19: macOS Big Sur: stuck on launch

Regarding the homebrew installation: How can I tell there's an update for the head and how can I do the update? Is brew update sufficient?

Re: Customizing the UI

Once FC has rebooted the nightly darkness clears up:

So it appears that the automatic switch to dark mode is messing things. I had reported a similar issue to WingWare a while ago which they could fix. IIRC it was somehow QT related. Should I create an issue?

Re: Python libs

Thanks for the link. That just looks like what I did. However, my git source has not built FreeCAD python module (I can find). Shouldn't it be in the Mod folder along with the other stuff like Part etc?

Python libs

Hi, I would like to use FC's Python API but with my own IDE. So, in order to load the modules I need to know where the Python libs are located. I though I had them right at /usr/local/Cellar/freecad/HEAD-5b058a9/Mod but once I start running something it immediately croaks on import FreeCAD as App as...

Re: Customizing the UI
