I'm very new to ROS and when I try to launch the 'rosinit' command on my M1 mac i receive the following message/error:
>> rosinit
Launching ROS Core...
Adding required Python packages to virtual environment..chmod: /Users/mattiawaitz/.matlab/R2021a/ros1/maci64/venv/bin/activate: No such file or directory
bash -c 'PATH=$PATH:/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/Resources/Python.app/Contents/MacOS ; /Users/mattiawaitz/.matlab/R2021a/ros1/maci64/venv/bin/activate ; DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/Resources/Python.app/Contents/lib /Users/mattiawaitz/.matlab/R2021a/ros1/maci64/venv/bin/python -m ensurepip --upgrade --no-default-pip -v -v -v': Killed
Done.
Could not install the required Python packages. System error message: bash:
/Users/mattiawaitz/.matlab/R2021a/ros1/maci64/venv/bin/activate: No such file or directory
bash: line 1: 91406 Killed: 9

/Users/mattiawaitz/.matlab/R2021a/ros1/maci64/venv/bin/python -m ensurepip --upgrade --no-default-pip -v -v -v
. Use pyenv function to set the path to the Python executable and retry the command.
I've installed Python 2.7 as requested by the help page and already tried using the 'pyenv' command as suggested by MATLAB in the last line.

Can you try the following once and let me know ?
>> pyenv('Version',<path to python 2.7>);
>> ros.internal.createOrGetLocalPython(true);
>> rosinit
Thanks and regards,

Hi Mattia,
I think it is installed in /usr/local/bin.
So, try the following. It should work
>>pyenv("Version","/usr/local/bin/python")
