I am getting this error message in my PD window when trying to use the gemwin object to open a window (and eventually use pix_video to put my webcam feed into my patch). Anyone know how to fix this, or what the problem is? I'm pretty new to PD! Thanks.
unable to switch to current window (do you have one?), cannot render! - ERROR MESSAGE
@csunflowert Are you sending the message [create 1( into [gemwin] first....... see the gemwin-help file...... right-click the [gemwin] object and select "help".
@whale-av Yes, I've got a two commands going into gemwin - one is [create, 1( and the other just [destroy(. I also have a toggle going into the gemwin object.
When I clicked help on the gemwin object, my PD window said .pdwindow: no such object. Could this be a reason why it's not working? I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Gem, and rebooting, nothing has changed.
It also comes up with this error message
[gemmacoswindow]: failed to init GLEW: your system only supports openGL-1.0
Not sure what any of this means!
@csunflowert Ah!!! A mac.
I found this........ https://github.com/umlaeute/Gem/issues/151
umlaute is the lead developer for GEM and might know.
The "no such object" means it cannot find the help file....... Pd doesn't know where to look for it.
In Pd go to the file.... preferences...... startup.... and in the "startup flags" box add
Save that and restart Pd and that could help.
You could also add the whole path from root to the GEM folder...... to the bigger box above that... "startup paths".
Thank you. I have tried opening a new issue with umlaute to see if they know the issue. I have also added that to the startup flag and that issue seems to be resolved.
Just need to be able to open a Gem window and have this error message go away and then I'm okay!
