Python HELP ?! Tags: Programming Python Computers Macintosh Apps Last response: August 12, 2010 6:09 PM in Applications Share ben52646 August 10, 2010 8:57:32 PM I am very new to python. How do I located a file on my computer (Mac) in a python program. Here is the program I am trying to run (I know its not done yet): bif="bg.jpg" mif="ball.png" import pygame, sys from pygame.locals import * pygame.init() screen=pygame.display.set_mode ((420,280),0,32) backround= pygame.image.load(bif).convert() mouse_c= pygame.image.load(mif).convert_alpha() while True: for event in pygame.event.get(): if event.type == QUIT: pygame.quit() sys.exit() screen.blit(backround, (0,0)) This is the error I get when I try to run it: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/Users/Ben/Desktop/Python/Game", line 10, in backround=pygame.image.load(bif).convert() error: Couldn't open bg.jpg How to put in the location (on my computer) for "bif" and "mif"? Keep in mind I am using a mac.

It is valid for linux though, so mac is probably failry similar) Good luck | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Applications>Python HELP ?!> Related ressources: ForumNew laptop for commuting python developer ForumStarting with Python ForumPython - please help !
