Subject: MacOS 10.15 cannot use the python-matlab engine.
Date: Sat, 05 Jun 2021 15:26:11 +0200
Message-ID: <> (raw)


Could use perfectly well the python-matlab engine from within emacs org
mode in Ubuntu 16.04, python 3.5 and matlab 2019b.

Now I am using 

    1. Macos 10.15 (catalina),

    2. Matlab2019b. (That only support python 2.7, 3.6, 3.7 but not 3.8,
       which the MacOs ships.

    3. So I installed fink (and python 3.7.)

    4. The installation of the python engine.

       a. In /Applications/ I run

       b. sudo /opt/sw/bin/python3.7 install

       c. The installation seem fine

    5. Setting up emacs: my setting is now slightly different:

#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
(setq org-confirm-babel-evaluate nil)   ;don't prompt me to confirm everytime I want to evaluate a block
;;; display/update images in the buffer after I evaluate
(add-hook 'org-babel-after-execute-hook 'org-display-inline-images 'append)
(add-to-list 'org-src-lang-modes '("matlab" . matlab))
(setq python-shell-interpreter "/opt/sw/bin/python3.7")
;; set default headers for convenience
(setq org-babel-default-header-args:matlab
      '((:results . "output replace")
	(:session . "matlab")
	(:kernel . "matlab")
	(:exports . "code")
	(:cache .   "no")
	(:noweb . "no")
	(:hlines . "no")
	(:tangle . "no")))
(defalias 'org-babel-execute:matlab 'org-babel-execute:ipython)
(defalias 'org-babel-prep-session:matlab 'org-babel-prep-session:ipython)
(defalias 'org-babel-matlab-initiate-session 'org-babel-ipython-initiate-session)

Now, I run as an example 

#+begin_src matlab :results output latex :exports results  :eval never-export :wrap latex
x = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5];
fprintf('|%d', x)

But I obtain now the unexpected error

I know that there some MaCOS users here in the list:

Any idea what went wrong.

Any help is strongly appreciated, since I don't have access to my Linux
machine fro the coming days.
