I have been using Anki for a long time and yesterday I opened the app on my Macbook and it told me to update to the newest version. I downloaded the most recent Intel macbook version on the Anki website, but when I tried to open the application, it just bounced up and down before saying “Application not responding”.
I have tried redownloading many times, restarting my laptop and all other advice on other forums. Nothing seems to be working!
Please advise!!! I really need the app for studying asap
I’m not really sure how terminal words, but spent a long time yesterday researching how to launch anki. Managed to start Anki from terminal, but it just continued bouncing and nothing came up in the terminal box
That’s somewhat surprising, I’d expect something to be printed in the terminal provided you didn’t include ‘open’ in the terminal command, and waited a few minutes to rule out an atypically-long startup time. What happens if you try again?
Hmm, very strange. And when you’ve tried the various Anki versions, you’ve been dragging them into your Applications folder and replacing the existing versions when macOS asks if you want to replace, keep both, or cancel?
If you look in your Applications folder, is there only “Anki”, or are there multiple, like “Anki 2”?
You said you tried restarting the computer already. The only other thing I can think of is if you have some form of antivirus running on your Mac, which is fairly rare.
I’m afraid I’m out of ideas The only remaining thing you could try is running Anki directly from Python, which is somewhat involved. You would need to install python 3.9.16 from python.org, restart your computer, and then type the following commands in a terminal:
