PythonCard Mac Fix

Some of our readers have had troubles with PythonCard not working on Mac OS X.  Here’s a fix.  (We found it on this website):

  1. Go to Macintosh HD/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/Lib/python2.5/site-packages/PythonCard
  2. Drag the file called “model.py” to the Trash.
  3. Download and unzip this file (http://www.tjleone.com/model.py.zip).  Drag it into the PythonCard folder.
  4. In the PythonCard folder, go to tools/resourceEditor.
  5. Control-click the file called resourceEditor.py and choose Make Alias.
  6. Rename the alias to “Resource Editor” (without the quotes)
  7. Drag the alias to somewhere you’ll be able to find it later.
  8. When you’re going through the book and you need to open Resource Editor, double-click the alias to open it in IDLE, then choose Run->Run Module in the menu.
