Hi all!

I have an issue with, I think, Xquartz trying to run PSPP. I went through past threads and could not find anything related, so I hope it was not inappropriate to start a new one. I have downloaded PSPP for Mac following the Softpedia tutorial. I run >> sudo psppire to launch the graphical interface, which starts but crashes as soon as I try to open a file (Xquartz shuts down, saying X11 shut unexpectedly). On the terminal I find this error message:

Dynamic session lookup supported but failed: launchd did not provide a socket path, verify that org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist is loaded!

(psppire:31882): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: g_dbus_proxy_new_sync: assertion 'G_IS_DBUS_CONNECTION (connection)' failed

followed by a number of errors with what seems to be an attempt to convert fonts?

Warning: cannot create a converter for `Mac-CentralEurope' to `UTF-8': Invalid argument

and then:

Gdk-Message: psppire: Fatal IO error 35 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server /private/tmp/com.apple.launchd.snDE67euOh/org.macosforge.xquartz:0.

I’m relatively new to using the terminal and Xquartz so I’m not sure how to address it (and look for example if org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist is loaded).

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi Patrizia,

thanks for your problem description. You encountered this problem here:

https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=789784

The reason is a bug in the 2.54.2 release of glib which is in macports resulting
in a crash. There are currently many problems regarding the quartz version
of glib.

You can install glib from sources directly from the 2.54 branch or use a previous glib
version maybe via macports.

Hi Patrizia,

i guess I did not read your description properly
 You try to run via X11.
If you just want to run psppire from GUI, then you can download a dmg here:

https://www.hs-augsburg.de/~beckmanf/pspp/

Please note that for the 1.0.1 release you have to choose „all files“ or the „.sav“ files
are not displayed when you try to open a file.

You should not run pspp via sudo. The description on Softpedia is o.k. but you can
and should start psppire as normal user.

Regards

Friedrich

Hi Friedrich,

thanks a lot. I thought it was the bug but then I realised it was a problem of the X11. I don’t specifically want to run the program one way or the other, my intent was only to run the graphical interface and that was the only guideline I found. Could you please direct me on how how to start psppire as normal user by any chance? Sorry for the basic questions, I am really starting to use the terminal so my abilities are limited.

Thank you very much for your help, much appreciated.

Best,

Patrizia

Hi Patrizia Piotti,

I have used PSPP on Macs in my class and we have used a download which worked decently well. Not as intuitive as normal Mac-software but running.

https://www.hs-augsburg.de/~beckmanf/pspp/pspp-1.0.1.dmg


Viele GrÌße/Kind regards

Dear Alexander,

Thank you very much, I will try to run this dmg and try the download again. Should I delete the previous version?

Thank you very much for your time.
Kind regards,

Hi Patrizia,

you do not need to uninstall macports or pspp in macports to install and run the dmg.

Dear Friedrich,

Thank you, I just run it and it works wonderfully, thank you so much. I will ‘test’ the software myself and then I am keen on sharing the information with my colleagues. Do you know any “exe” installer for the Windows users?

Thank you very much again, I’m very grateful for the help.
Kind regards,

Hi Patrizia,

you can find installer instructions here:

https://www.gnu.org/software/pspp/get.html

There are also installers for windows. Please note that there is a bug in the
1.0.1 osx bundle. You have to select „All files“ when you want to open a file, otherwise
the .sav files are not shown.
