View 'mesh function error

Dear Modalyser,

The function (view 'mesh xxx) and (view 'object xxx) met small difficulties when I evaluate them.
I got the message
" Error: *** ERROR: could not find spawner in resources*"
When I computed the modes, and make it as an object, it works with the function (view 'mode xxx) and will display correctly.

I wonder if someone had the same error message as me. Is there a way to fix it?
Thank you very much!

Best regards,

Dear Maestrorulez,

Thank you for your report! Maybe there is a small read-write access permission thing around Modalisp and Medit. I will check it again.


Dear friends,

I have checked the issue very carefully and found the reason why it produced the error message before.
So I post the solution here for the friends who might have the same situation.

From the 10.11 the macOS included a “System Integrity Protection” (SIP) function which produced many problems of read write permissions… In my case, when the SIP is not disabled, the software is not installed completely, or, there are something blocked between the ModaLisp and medit. So I have disabled this function:

  1. Uninstall the software.
  2. Restart computer into Recovery Mode (by pressing Cmd+R while starting)
  3. In Recovery Mode, open Terminal, type: “csrutil disable”
  4. Restart and reinstall the software

After that, the function like view 'mesh will work properly.
