Hi Arturo,
I did two things:
1) I changed the config file located in c:\users\USERNAME\config.conf per your suggestion
2) I installed PyOpenGL

When I ran BER Simulation, I got a couple of errors dealing with the GUI:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\gnuradio\install\lib\site-packages\gnuradio\wxgui\forms\forms.py", line 100, in <lambda>
    widget.Bind(EVT_DATA, lambda x: self._update(x.data))
File "C:\gnuradio\install\lib\site-packages\gnuradio\wxgui\forms\forms.py", line 503, in _update
    def _update(self, i): self._notebook.SetSelection(i, 0)
File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\wx-2.8-msw-unicode\wx\_controls.py", line 3021, in SetSelection
    return _controls_.BookCtrlBase_SetSelection(*args, **kwargs)
TypeError: BookCtrlBase_SetSelection() takes at most 2 arguments (3 given)

As best as I can tell, the function for the widget, SetSelection, cannot handle receiving a -1. I'm guessing that what works under some OS's doesn't necessarily work under others with native controls.

In the end, I reverted back to not using OpenGL. I, too, would be curious if anyone got the OpenGl version of the Scope working.

Thanks for your help.

In looking at the GRC example, BER Simulation, I noticed that the WX
Gui Scope Sink window looks very different depending on whether it is
Windows or Ubuntu.  The Windows version looks a bit odd.  I was
wondering if anyone else is seeing the same thing, or if it is
something that I'm doing wrong.

A screen shot of the two side by side can be see here:


Discuss-gnuradio mailing list

the windows version is the non-GL version of the Scope Sink. I'm experiencing this issue also on MacOs X....you can try editing your "config.conf" file (i don't know where it is on windows based systems. In unix like systems is in the hidden folder gnuradio placed in your HOME : ".gnuradio/config.conf" - if it doesn't exist you can create it and so override the default settings) and then add the following lines


Please let me know if it works because I'm really interested too.

Regards, Arturo
