Safari and Mail not showing up in Apps list in PrefPane

Postby alexliz » Sat Jun 07, 2008 12:05 pm

It's all in the title, people. I've just installed 1.1.3 (well, it wasn't easy, until I found the trick with issuing the "defaults write com.apple.mail EnableBundles -bool YES" command in Terminal, as Mail wouldn't wake up as to Growl's renewed plugin's existence), and here is the rundown on Mail and Safari:

-Mail prefs show Growl, and Mail does send Growl notifications to my screen;
-Safari does nothing to indicate it knows there's Growl on my MacBook Pro;
-Neither Mail nor Safari are listed in the Applications list in the Growl Pref Pane.

Any tips, more than welcome.

What version of Mac OS X are you using?

Look for GrowlMail. Both GrowlMail and GrowlSafari use their own names, not the application names.

Thanks, boredzo.

I've got MacOS X 10.5.2; Safari 3.1.1 (build 5525.18).

You're right, GrowlMail _is_ listed.
Not GrowlSafari, though.

For GrowlSafari, the permissions on /Library/InputManagers are not properly set.. you should do this---

[From the http://www.kitzkikz.com/SogudiBeta, in turn from another blog] -- what pertains to Input Managers in general to fix permissions is in BOLD:
Installation for Leopard (from here)

Delete $HOME/Library/InputManagers/Sogudi if it exists.
Delete /Library/InputManagers/Sogudi if it exists.
Expand the "tgz" file above.
Drag the "Sogudi" folder into /Library/InputManagers
Use Terminal to:
sudo chown -R root:admin /Library/InputManagers
sudo chmod -R go-w /Library/InputManagers
Restart Safari


Once I did this [again] GrowlSafari shows up on the GrowlPrefPane>Applications list, and I get RSS feed notifications.

That permissions repairing did the trick. After applying the changes, a quick restart of Safari was all it took for it to end up in my Growl applications list again.

Many thanks for the fix! While 1.1.3 itself seems to run smoothly, that install seems to have been a [i]bit[/i] of a mess :\

No kidding. And in trying to fix it, I've found that PackageMaker itself is broken (it always sets g+w, in contravention of our PackageMaker document and the permissions of the files in the build folder), so I have to change our build process to actually re-do parts of the package after running PackageMaker.

If anyone asks why I hate PackageMaker, you can just point them to this post. :\
