Solution for Pyperclip 1.8.2 conflicting with Pyautogui
is Given Below:
- Python Version: 3.9.6 (installed with brew)
- MacOS: 11.5.1
- Mac: early 2015, 13″ retina
I have code that I wrote that imports multiple modules, including pyperclip and pyautogui. When trying to run the example code from the pyperclip homepage in my
python3 pyperclip-script.py , I got the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/Users/[my_user_name]/Documents/pyperclip-script.py", line 45, in <module> pyperclip.copy('The text to be copied to the clipboard.') File "/usr/local/lib/python3.9/site-packages/pyperclip/__init__.py", line 659, in lazy_load_stub_copy return copy(text) File "/usr/local/lib/python3.9/site-packages/pyperclip/__init__.py", line 139, in copy_osx_pyobjc board.declareTypes_owner_([AppKit.NSStringPboardType], None) File "/usr/local/lib/python3.9/site-packages/objc/_lazyimport.py", line 207, in __getattr__ raise AttributeError(name) AttributeError: NSStringPboardType
I started to debug by removing all modules except for pyperclip an then importing them one by one. When I import pyautogui, the
Attribute Error is raised.
How can I fix this conflict? I can’t seem to find any documentation on this conflict.
ADDED: I found this documentation from Apple regarding the attribute error.
