3. Running MUSCIMarker

When you want to run MUSCIMarker (assuming you followed the installation instructions with Anaconda):

  1. Open the command line.
  2. Only if you made the special Python 2 conda environment: source activate py27
  3. NEW! cd muscima
  4. NEW! git pull to update the underlying package to the latest version
  5. NEW! cd .. to return to your home directory
  6. cd MUSCIMarker
  7. git pull to update to the latest version.
  8. cd MUSCIMarker again (there are two directories called MUSCIMarker, one inside the other).
  9. Run python main.py and the MUSCIMarker window should open.

If you are not sure that the git pull step finished successfully, try running git pull again. If your MUSCIMarker is correctly updated, it should tell you that it is already up to date.


Make sure you have installed the muscima package according to Installing MUSCIMarker. If you get an error saying there is no musicma subdirectory after entering cd muscima, that means you still need to install the package.

3.1. More generally

If the above doesn’t apply because you installed MUSCIMarker in your own way, we assume you know what you are doing. In that case, to run MUSCIMarker, just run main.py from the MUSCIMarker/MUSCIMarker directory.
