Hi guys, I have a couple students that reported that their Mu is not highlighting the syntax on their Macs
Does anyone know how to fix that?
drummondpitt
@drummondpitt
would the portable version work better?
jamiebDC
@jamiebDC
Using mu for the first time tonight. I loaded a python file that worked great in a different installation of python. I'm able to use the "Check" button. But my "Run" button is missing. I see in the footer on right side that I'm in python mode. Why is this button missing? or is there some other way I'm supposed to run the file/program/script?
jamiebDC
@jamiebDC
I also see the mode button is greyed out. Seems odd.
Nicholas Tollervey
@ntoll
@drummondpitt there will be an update to Mu with a fix for the Mac problem later this week.
@jamiebDC not sure what's going on. Can you paste in a screen shot..?

I also see the mode button is greyed out. Seems odd.

@jamiebDC The mode button is greyed out (at least) while the program is running. If the [Stop] button is showing as opposed to the [Play]/[Run] button then [Mode] will be greyed out

Nicholas Tollervey
@ntoll
@tjguk_twitter good point (wish I'd thought of that). I guess you've already got some code running.
jamiebDC
@jamiebDC
Thanks, Nicholas and Tim. That's exactly the thing. Awesome.

hello everyone. I'm happy to use Mu editor again.
I'm using latest pewpew M4 from Deshipu. with Adafruit CircuitPython mode, I'm able to load, save and of course run my code. But "Serial" button always get me to "2020-01-22 15:39:30,491 - mu.modes.base:231(find_device) WARNING: Could not find device.
2020-01-22 15:39:30,491 - mu.modes.base:232(find_device) DEBUG: Available ports:
2020-01-22 15:39:30,491 - mu.modes.base:236(find_device) DEBUG: ['PID:0x60e8 VID:0x1d50 PORT:ttyACM0', 'PID:0x0000 VID:0x0000 PORT:ttyS0']
2020-01-22 15:39:30,492 - mu.interface.main:723(show_message) DEBUG: Could not find an attached device.
2020-01-22 15:39:30,492 - mu.interface.main:724(show_message) DEBUG: Please make sure the device is plugged into this computer.
"
any suggestions ?
Nicholas Tollervey
@ntoll
It appears the VID/PID (vendor ID and product ID) which identifies this device as one that support CircuitPython isn't recognised by Mu. I.e. Deshipu has his own non-Adafruit one.
If you ask him to submit the VID/PID update to the CircuitPython mode then we can merge it in.
Thierry Chantier
@titimoby
oh i get it
and it is only used for serial, not load/save actions ?
Nicholas Tollervey
@ntoll
:+1: just get Radomir to drop me a line with teh vid/pid details
yeah, only for serial
Thierry Chantier
@titimoby
very nice, I'll tell him
Nicholas Tollervey
@ntoll
basically, it's about device detection. For the serial connection we have to use vid/pid. For filesystem operations (save etc...) we can detect in a different way (because the device is seen as a storage device, rather than a serial device). Turns out, computers are really very complicated. ;-)
Thierry Chantier
@titimoby
it makes sense, thanks
and I can't say computers are complicated, I always says to kids not to be afraid and that it is simple :)
Nicholas Tollervey
@ntoll
Heh... computers can be simple, humans definitely are not, and so software and hardware reflects the complexity of the folks who both use and design 'em. ;-)
Thierry Chantier
@titimoby
wooooow that's a nice one. you know, to answer to the clever kid that always has a proper answer and really knows things :)
Nicholas Tollervey
@ntoll
thanks... that was this week's deep thought. You'll have to wait for next week if you want anything more from me. I limit myself to 1 a week otherwise my head explodes. ;-)
I'm going to return to thinking about puppies and kittens now. :-)
Thierry Chantier
@titimoby
oh no, did I hear your head explodes? because that was a nice second wise statement :)
maybe I start to enjoy english humor :)

Hi, I'm trying to get Mu on my school computers for a class I am going to teach. I would like to know what kind of EULA Mu has and I can't find the link to Mu's privacy policy or terms of service. Can anyone point me in the right direction.
Joseph Haig
@jrmhaig
I'm probably the wrong person to answer this but I suspect that the EULA would be something like 'We really want you to use this!'. You might find what you are looking for in some of the files here: https://github.com/mu-editor/mu (particularly the ones with all-caps names).
Karly
@Sekodikai_gitlab
Thank you Joseph, I'll keep looking :)
Nicholas Tollervey
@ntoll
@Sekodikai_gitlab hi. So this is the file you're looking for: https://github.com/mu-editor/mu/blob/master/LICENSE we also have a code of conduct for those who want to interact with the project via support channels like this one.
please feel to ask questions if need be.
The licence file to which I linked covers all the Mu software.
Basically, you're free to use it as you see fit.
:-)

@Sekodikai_gitlab

Hi, I have a generic FT232H board (not Adafruit) that's not detected when selecting CircuitPython mode - is this 'as expected'? Board reports as: Bus 002 Device 008: ID 0403:6014 Future Technology Devices International, Ltd FT232H Single HS USB-UART/FIFO IC. This is with Mu 1.0.2 on Mint 19.3.

In standard Python 3 mode, I can import the relevant CircuitPython libraries and the code (for general I/O blinkenlights and also for I2C to an OLED display) runs successfully.

As a secondary question, if I invoke mu from a terminal prompt, having set: export BLINKA_FT232H=1 (either manually or in .bashrc), all's well, but if I make a shortcut using the python shortcut tool, I get: "NotImplementedError: Board not supported GENERIC_LINUX_PC", so I presume the environment variable is not set, so: 1) Can this be done or 2) Can you define the board type from within the Python code?

Thanks.

Any possibility of Mu supporting the PyBoard? The only thing out there is PyCraft and it's marginal. I really like Mu with Circuit Python. But CP is really not ready for robust embedded development.
Martin Dybdal
@dybber
Should be simple to make the ESP-mode support PyBoard or make a variant of it (the built-in document would be different). I will soon (february-march) have more time on my hands to look at the ESP-mode again, fire away with suggestions (preferably as issues on Github, so they are collected a single place).

Something with cross compilation seems to have been broken, it doesn't seem possible to make Windows binaries from Mac OS X or Linux anymore

Is there a way to make the size of the serial window permanent? Or at least make the window resize hot spot bigger, because under a 4k screen, it's nearly impossible, while running, to make the mouse pointer hit that very, very, teeny, weensy, little spot consistently?

Hi, I'm physics teacher and I want to install Mu in my classroom. I need some modules so Mu must be able to install them through the proxy, how can I set up the proxy address ?
Thanks
Joseph Haig
@jrmhaig
Following on from two weeks ago, yesterday I tried installing the C++ Redistributable package on the library PCs to see if that would allow the portable version of Mu to run but it failed because of permissions (which I expected). Oh well.

Hi folks, the latest bug-fix stable release of Mu (1.0.3) is here: https://madewith.mu/mu/releases/2020/01/26/mu-1-0-3.html

Just downloaded Mu(1.0.3) to my MacBook Air(macOS Catalina 10.15.2). Followed installation instructions, opened with sudo in terminal. Plugged in microbit. Loaded a py program and tried to flash...unable to do so. Tried this on another machine a couple of days ago. Log suggests: Operation not permitted: '/Volumes/MICROBIT/micropython.hex'. My account has read/write access to mu-editor.

@swainwri
Just had another look after looking at issues board. sudo /Applications/mu-editor.app/Contents/MacOS/mu-editor seems solve the problem. Great I'm up and running.
