I enter my desired framerate in the “What will your monitor refresh’s rate be (Hz)” field of the Vision Egg startup GUI, but I get a different refresh rate. Why?
I am unable to open a graphics window. I get the following exception: “pygame.error: Couldn’t find matching GLX visual”
How to start without the configuration GUI appearing?
I can not get the demos to work. The GUI Graphics configuration launches correctly when I try grating.py but when I click “ok” a new gray window opens for a few seconds and then closes. Can anyone help???
How do I turn off the configuration window?
I have set up my PC with a dual boot and have been gradually getting used to Linux. I would like to make the transition solely to Linux and the open source movement. However, I am running into one dependency problem after another and have tried RPM and tar.gz files. I even have a few experienced Linux users around and we still can not get all the dependencies installed.
How do I specify where on my screen the display should go? If I create a window, I know how to direct the graphics to a certain location within that window, but how do I set the position of the window itself?
When using certain stimuli, including the demo versions of the moving grating and put_pixels, I sometimes see an artifact that travels from the bottom of the window to the top. It usually looks like a slightly jagged line, and usually travels across the entire screen slowly to the top. I’m not sure if this is a programming issue or something that is specific to my monitor. It’s an LCD monitor running at 60Hz, and that’s what vision egg is set to use.
When I run a stand-alone VisionEgg windows executable created with py2exe, I get the error “IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘...library.zip\OpenGL\version’
What are my anti-aliased points appearing as squares (instead of circles)?
Many more demos are included!
