I have run Sonic Pi builds on my Mac for several years, but recently my setup has been all screwed up. Currently I am still running High Sierra, although I can also access a viertual Mohave machine. It all started when an automatic homebrew install upgraded everything and switched to qt 5.13.0 It also objected to the Xcode version I was running so I upgraded this to the latest that would run on High Sierra version 10.1 (including Mac SDK10.14) together with the associated command line tools.
Previously I have built using brew installs for qt, qscintilla2, but built (for historical reasons) qwt-6.1.4 myself., and everything has worked fine.
With the latest 3.2dev, which builds fine for me on Ubuntu and on Raspberry Pi4 under Raspbian Buster, it builds fine on My mac, but when I try and run it, (initially from the command line at
Sonic\ Pi.app/Contents/MacOS/Sonic\ Pi
it launches the splash screen, which after a few seconds has a rotating ball cursor and doesn’t respond. However if I look at the logs, everything appears to launch OK. There are no unexpected errors and the logs announce that Sonic Pi is running, as are m2o, o2m, erlang and scsynth. If I ctrl-C the terminal window everything shuts down nicely including the Splash Screen. There are no errors shown on the system side on the Mac, and I am at a loss how to proceed.
If anyone has any suggestions I would be glad to have them.
Interestingly, I have an older iMac running El Capitan, and that builds and runs the latest version fine, using qt5.9.0, and Xcode 7.3.1 (with Mac SDK10.11)
