Addon manager does not respond [FIXED]

Post by gbanis » Wed Sep 16, 2020 1:38 pm

OS: LMDE 4 (debbie)
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.18.
Build type: Release
Python version: 2.7.16rc1

Hello :)

I am trying to install the Curves workbench.
my Addon manager freezes and nothing is loading in the workbenches window.
(macros are loading in the macros window, the screen becomes gray and a message appears: "Retrieving info from wiki").
I tried also to git clone the curves WB to cd ./Mod but still, the workbench is not loading.
Anyone knows how to solve this problem?

Thank you!

Not sure exactly, but you are running some version of 0.18 and with py2
Try the 0.19 AppImage and report back (assuming that you are on a *NIX based platform)

Edit: FYI, it's ~/.FreeCAD/Mod

Dear Kunda1,

Thank you for your answer.
I purged py2 and I installed py3. This way I managed to install the Curves workbench manually but still, the Addon manager is not working.
