I tried the online version, but I find it too messy because it’s difficult to have an overview of all the icons hidden on the left, difficult to drag and drop some actions… I thought maybe the offline app gui would be a bit more configurable and I downloaded it. But it won’t start. I think I’ve installed all that was mandatory, and even lots of spare mw apps or libs.
My system is up to date, but I’m not very fluent in Python, so I thought maybe someone here could help. Here what I get as an error:

I initially had the same trouble on Linux Mint. I don’t know if you were doing the same thing I was – running it via the command line from a different directory than the source directory.
I found two solutions.
The simplest was to change directory (cd) to the source directory before issuing the “python edware.py” command.
The second, and more stable fix (I believe), is to edit gui/paths.py to replace the rather fragile “os.getcwd” on line 43.
Old line 43:
New line 43:
That worked for me. Edware starts and runs after that.
Hope this helps!
Unfortunately, I’m still unable to download a program to the Edison successfully!
