ATC-Pie death spiral on my Mac :-(

Postby Hevii Guy » Sun Feb 18, 2018 6:32 am

I did a git clone and, just to make sure, a git pull before loading the program onto my Mac box (running with Python 3).

Tried to fire it up but got shot down in flames :shock:
I'm hoping that somebody might see an easy "fix" which they might be able to recommend to me. Here's the terminal output:

Code: Select all
heviiguy@heviiApfel Code$ python ATC-pie.py LSZH
Loading aircraft & airline data... done.
Reading world navigation data... done.
Speech recognition modules not found; voice instructions disabled.
Speech synthesis module not found; pilot read-back disabled.
Setting up session 4069-0 in AD mode at location LSZH...
No airport settings file found; using defaults.
No elevation map found; using field elevation.
ERROR: 'ascii' codec can't encode character '\xb0' in position 21: ordinal not in range(128)

Any obvious suggestions, please?

Hi,
I think you are having the same trouble as in this post.
The solution is posted in that post. I will add an entry to the FAQ I think, since this is the second time.

Micky, that was exactly what I needed! The Pie works brilliantly :D

I can now toss the entire works through Platypus so that I'll have a portable app which can be dropped onto my Mac's Dock.

So please try running your program with the following instead:
Code: Select all
PYTHONIOENCODING=utf8 python3 ATC-pie.py

Hi,
Glad you got the program running and easily integrated to your desktop.
Now as you must have noticed, the installation help for Mac is poor. If you ever care to send me contents for something better than a forum link, I'll be happy to extend the README with it for better help to Mac users.
