Hey all, Pebble n00b here…
Was following the OS X install instructions but using macports instead of homebrew since I already had it installed.
Everything seemed to go fine until the last step…
$ python -c "import freetype"
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/Users/alexweber/Library/Python/2.7/lib/python/site-packages/freetype/__init__.py", line 38, in
raise RuntimeError, 'Freetype library not found'
RuntimeError: Freetype library not found
I'm assuming based on the searching & reading I've done that this is a problem with Python not knowing where to find Freetype since I installed it using macports, which has no equivalent to "brew link --force" (AFAIK).
I tried adding some more locations onto my $PATH but that didn't seem to help. Here's what I tried (some spaces added for formatting)
$ echo $PATH
I did find that Freetype.6.dylib exists in /opt/local/lib so that's why I added that to $PATH but alas, no dice.
Here's the posts I've already read and tried to use as references, in case it helps:
Thanks in advance, Pebble Hackers!
