OM 6.12 doesn't see stock libraries

Author 3 Subscribed Users |

Hi everybody,

I installed the new version yesterday on MacOS Sierra, but it can’t open my previous workspaces, because it doesn’t find it’s own libraries, Esquisse, Repmus,… I just copied the whole folder from the DMG to my application-folder, so everything is in the default place. Is this normal, or another security restriction from Apple? I can start importing my old stuff, but shouldn’t the standard libraries be seen by the OM-app without explicit pointing to them?
This causes the constant error: “I can’t load the workspace because library nn isn’t found”, so I can’t actually get into the preferences and point to the standard libraries…

I’ll stick with 6.11 for now…

Greetings, Joost

Do you see the libraries when you open the “Packages” window ?

Hi Jean,

it sees the libraries-folder in packages, but it’s empty, when I click on the lower half of it’s icon, to open it’s contents, nothing happens;
it looks different from your screenshot in that it doesn’t have the arrow on it’s left side;

Thanks for helping out!

ok. Is there something in the OM 6.12/libraries/ directory ?

Yes, obviously :-)
since I copied the folder in its exact state from the install-DMG, so it contains all the stock-library-folders;
I see the files for Repmus and all the others, but the OM-app doesn’t see them…

ok, very strange. Files in the folders, too I guess.
This might be a codesigning thing that I didn’t do well (I’m not sure I even signed the code at all in 6.12).
I will try to redo and post an update asap (give me a few days).

Dear Jean,

Yes I confirm. With Sierra there is a problem accessing the library folder in OM. When the OM PAckages Library is openned, there is no left arrow allowing you to open the libraries folder in order to load them. I am sure it is the F(*& Apple security shitty system called Gate Keeper that prevent this happening.
