Picard crashes when open preferences

I have a long time problem with PIcard and the latest versions of macOS. When I open preferences, the window closes and this log appears to report the error. I think I’ve done this a few times but it hasn’t been fixed with updates.

I have tried deleting the *ini. files in .config, deleted options in Library and giving read/write permissions to staff and everyone to the Music Brainz folder in .config, and uninstall / reinstall.

See if anyone can help me identify the problem. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the report. Could you try opening a terminal and run Picard from the command line via e.g.:

"/Applications/MusicBrainz Picard.app/Contents/MacOS/picard-run" --debug

The above assumes you have placed the Picard app in your standard Applications folder. If not please adapt the path accordingly.

When it is running please make it crash and report the complete output from the terminal here. Thanks!

Hello, Thank you for your reply. The command doesn’t work because of the quotation marks and the slash. This other one works: /Applications/MusicBrainz\ Picard.app/Contents/MacOS/picard-run --debug You can see a message from another user pointing out that the correct command is this one here:

This is the debug output in the terminal, is it correct?

Thank you very much for your help.

Thanks for the details. Unfortunately I can’t see really what is happening, and I can’t reproduce this on my mac mini with macOS 12.1.

It could be worth trying to move the folder /Users/letra/.config/MusicBrainz/ out of the way (don’t delete it, just move it somewhere else so you don’t loose your settings if you want to restore it) and see if Picard starts then.

If this would be the cause and Picard opens with a fresh configuration it would be interesting if you could give me the original Picard.ini file from that folder. You could send it to me by e-mail to outsidecontext AT metabrainz DOT org.

Another thing to try is removing all plugins (if any) from /Users/letra/Library/Preferences/MusicBrainz/Picard/plugins and see if that helps. If it is one of the plugins causing the issue re-enabling them one by one can help to identify the reponsible plugin.

Both are fine. The quotation marks are part of the command and have to be entered as well. Because the path has a space in it you either need to enclose the path in quotation marks or escape the spaces with a backslash.

Same problem here.

I have followed the proposed steps and I still have the same problem as @Letra. Even deleting my settings and plugins in order to make a fresh install still gives the same result.

I have also tried with previous versions, but without success.

I think the key may be in the language or regional settings of the Mac. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that two users with the same language and region have this problem.

Just installed Picard yesterday and found this thread from two years ago.

I’ve just registered because I found a workaround:

  1. Delete Picard and the configuration files (shoud be in ~/.config/MusicBrainz)
  2. Change the macOS system language to English (US)
  3. Reboot
  4. Start Picard again. Now, you can access the Preferences
  5. Go to Options → Appearance → User Interface language, and replace “System default” with “English”
  6. Changfe the macOS system language to your original language (Español de España in my case)
  7. Reboot

This worked for me and finally I can use Picard.

Hope this helps!!!

Impressive. Thank you very much. And it has taken years to find a solution to this bug that was surely leaving hundreds of users unable to use it (myself included). The dev team should work some things out.

@bysho what’s your system language?

@outsidecontext

Say “Spanish of Spain”. Me too.

I added the following ticket to track the issue:
