It's really unlikely that very many Python scripts are ever going to get rewritten to work via lifelib instead of Golly, when they work so well (for almost everyone) in Golly. It definitely seems worth finding and fixing whatever the problem is on your system, so that you'll be in the Python Just Works category also.MathAndCode wrote: ↑June 1st, 2021, 4:51 pmI've always been able to run Python on other applications, but I still can't run Python scripts in Golly. This is why I've asked about the existence of lifelib versions of various programs, such as synthesise-patt.
Again, I don't remember -- did you ever start a thread and provide OS, Golly version, and Python executable name, and the exact symptoms that you get when you try to run a Python script? I just tried searching for a detailed description of your problem along those lines, but didn't come up with anything. Usually if we can just get people to answer questions specifically enough, the conversation ends up going something like this -- i.e., ending with "It worked".
(But I seem to recall you may have been the exception that proves the rule. Mac OS, was it? Maybe Andrew Trevorrow would have some ideas.)
