Error Mac Big Sur

Discuss the jamovi platform, possible improvements, etc.

Hello!

Since I've updated my Macbook's operation system to Big Sur, Jamovi is not opening at all.
I get this error message all the time:

Unfortunately, the jamovi server could not be started, and jamovi must now close. We regret the inconvenience.
Please report your experiences to the jamovi team.

I hope that someone can help me with this.

Thank you!

hi marcell,

we're not aware of any issues with jamovi on big sur (i use big sur myself). could you try running jamovi at the terminal, and see if any additional information is output?

open a terminal, and run the command:

/Applications/jamovi.app/Contents/MacOS/jamovi

with thanks

we've had one report that jamovi stopped working when they updated to big sur, but simply downloading and reinstalling jamovi made it work again. it's unclear how many people are affected by this macOS bug.

cheers
