4.3pre17 crashes with Snow Leopard
Submitted by phemets on Monday, 14 September, 2009 - 08:42
Hi everyone! I recently switched to Mac after having used jEdit on Windows for years. Everything worked fine with 4.2, but using the touchpad for scrolling on Mac was a real show stopper. This should be solved with 4.3pre17, so I tried to install it. The first time I tried to start the Mac app the splash screen froze. Every subsequent time it stopped one second after starting. This happens both with the Mac OS App and jedit.jar from the Java-based installer. If I try 4.3pre16 everything works fine. Deleting the configuration directory doesn't help. Any ideas?

Repost with line breaks (seems like Mac line breaks don't work)

Hi everyone!

I recently switched to Mac after having used jEdit on Windows for years. Everything worked fine with 4.2, but using the touchpad for scrolling on Mac was a real show stopper. This should be solved with 4.3pre17, so I tried to install it.

The first time I tried to start the Mac app the splash screen froze. Every subsequent time the app stopped one second after starting. This happens both with the Mac OS App and jedit.jar from the Java-based installer. If I try 4.3pre16 everything works fine.

I already tried deleting the configuration directory, replacing the soft link and removing the Mac OS plugin. Nothing worked for me.

Any ideas?

1. Maybe You've deleted a set

1. Maybe You've deleted a settings directory, witch isn't in use anymore. Now it's now located under your home directory, inside the Library directory (~/Library/jEdit).

2. Did You take a look at that thread?

Yes - thank you! Problem solved!

Seems like I used the wrong settings directory somehow. Renaming the directory you mentioned solved the problem. Now I can use pre17 without the scrolling issues - great! Thank you very much!
