Growl on Snow Leopard

Postby mykalt45 » Wed Jul 08, 2009 5:32 pm

Is there a 64-bit version of Growl that is available to test? I downloaded the lastest Growl, which is 32-bit, and I can't get any apps to be recognized that normally should, such as mail. Has anyone looked into this, or have any information. I am testing Snow Leopard, so I've been trying different programs. The only app I could get to be recognized was Skype, every other one like mail, although I had Growl running, it did not recognize it. Thanks.

There isn't even a working one yet. But we're working on it. Our current plan is for 64-bit cleanliness to be the primary feature of 1.2.

Growl 1.1.5 works just fine with the latest Snow Leopard Seed update (10A402) that was pushed out through software update last night :)

i had it working on my MacBook w/ SL w/ previous builds, but it seems to work just fine no matter now (the issue was with 3rd party System Preferences, not just Growl specifically)

I've written an AppleScript that should provide the functionality of GrowlMail until Growl and GrowlMail are 64-bit. Enjoy!

UPDATE: Peter Hosey says the new 64-bit version of Growl (1.2) could be coming out for Snow Leopard as soon as today (Sep. 3, 2009)! –Growl Discuss


Not exactly. Growl 1.2 beta is out today on the beta page. We don't know when 1.2 final will come out—it depends on how the betas go.

And yes, Growl and GrowlMail (and GrowlSafari) all work on 64-bit Macs and on Snow Leopard as of 1.2 (beta).

There's still room for a script to post notifications, though. Some other users have been exchanging and discussing such scripts in another thread.

1.2 beta 2 only installed properly for me when installed with Pacifist, the normal .pkg wouldn't run properly, it kept complaining "The application does not exist".

Yeah, I just installed 1.2b2, and still GrowlMail will not work. It does show up on the Preferences panel (which previously didn't), however you still get the error message when you start Mail, telling you GrowlMail has been deactivated. Any clues?

I used to have that problem before I put the betas together, but fixed it. It still doesn't happen for me.

Please open the Installer Log window (which is in Installer), set its Detail Level to “Show All Messages”, attempt the installation, and post the log here.

It is working just fine on my machine. Are you sure you installed both Growl 1.2b2 AND the GrowlMail package in the Extras Folder?

You have an old GrowlMail installed. Check both of these folders and remove both GrowlMails:

  • Your Home folder
    • Library
      • Mail
        • Bundles
  • Your startup disk
    • Library
      • Mail
        • Bundles

Then install GrowlMail 1.2b2 (using the package in the Extras folder) again.

I tried that, but the installation keeps failing, though... Of course, I also tried uninstalling the whole Growl and reinstalling from scratch. However, even then the GrowlMail installation fails.

Does growl 1.2b1 (pre-release) not auto-update? (it doesn't seem to be doing)
Will growl 1.2b2?

OK, now I stand (semi)corrected. Although it definitely says the installation has failed, GrowlMail is actually working. Why? No idea...

My installation of the GrowlMail also always fails although I've deleted the old Mail Plugin folders before and closed Mail while installing. (And it's also not working nevertheless unless the previous poster reported.) Any other hints ...? Thanks in advance!!

For you guys having problems installing GrowlMail:

Use the Terminal and type in this:

Code: Select all

sudo installer -pkg /Volumes/Growl-1.2b2/Extras/GrowlMail/GrowlMail.pkg -target /


It's just a permissions problem, so you run it yourself using root-privileges.

I just installed Growl 1.2b2 and the GrowlMail extra package.

Growl seems to be working fine, but the GrowlMail preference pain does not appear in Mail even after restarting.

Please advise. Thanks!
