A PDF file with the presentation slides of an introduction into Psychtoolbox-3: Talk slides of Psychtoolbox presentation, given at ECVP 2013 Bremen More detailled information can be found in the Psychtoolbox subfolder named of your Psychtoolbox installation.
These are simple instructions to get you up and running with the Psychophysics Toolbox on a computer.
It is assumed that you already have Matlab or Octave installed on your computer, or are installing for Octave on Linux via the Neuro Debian repositories. The second command will take a long time and generate a lot of output. If the download fails, read below on Download Problems.
The database both stores the latest version of the code and tracks all of the changes that have been made to it.
This simplifies maintenance and development of the toolbox.
Instead, simply copy the Psychtoolbox folder to the other target machines.
Next, startup Matlab or Octave on that machines, change Matlab’s or Octave’s working directory to the copied Psychtoolbox folder ( script will setup your copied local Psychtoolbox folder for use with Matlab or Octave, just as our installers would do. If you cannot install the Subversion client sub-folder from the extracted ZIP will add PTB to your MATLAB path.
This will bring up a dialog box with a list of folders that Matlab searches to find commands.
Select all the folders that have “Psychtoolbox” in the name and click the “Remove” button, followed by the “Save” button to save the changes.
The Psychtoolbox functions automate interactions with the database, so you never have to use Subversion directly.
