Getdist GUI

Post by Tristan L Smith » July 20 2015

Hello all,

I successfully used the getdist GUI today, but after logging back into my account it has stopped working. When I run the GUI now I receive the following error message:

Code: Select all

File "/home/physics/Documents/PlanckR2/cosmomc/python/getdist/gui/mainwindow.py", line 116, in __init__
    self.listDirectories.setCurrentIndex(Dirs.index(lastDir))
ValueError: u'/home/physics/Documents/PlanckR2/cosmomc/chains' is not in list
The same error message appears when I am trying to run the GUI from a different directory (i.e. it always points to the same directory). I am guessing that there is some place to clear the 'lastDir', or that I am missing some input when running the GUI. I run it from the cosmomc directory with the command

Code: Select all

python/GetDistGUI.py
The GUI is so useful, so any help on getting it to work consistently would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Hi Tristan and Antony

I had the same problem and dealt with it --not sure if this is the best way-- by commenting the following lines in the file ./python/getdist/gui/mainwindow.py (about line 115):

Code: Select all

            """
	       if os.path.exists(lastDir):
                self.listDirectories.setCurrentIndex(Dirs.index(lastDir))
                self.openDirectory(lastDir)
            else:
                self.listDirectories.setCurrentIndex(-1)
            """
Note: I am using July2015 CosmoMC version.

Hope it works for you.

Does this come from previously having used the previous gui version?
In any case I pushed an additional fix along these lines, now on github.

Hi Antony and Alejandro,

Thanks for your help! After commenting out the code which Alejandro referenced, the gui works great.

Best,
