Applications in The Font Tool Suite:
Release 4, beta 1 is dated 2011-10-11 at https://developer.apple.com/downloads/index.action?q=font
I tried to install the suite on my PowerBook 17 with 10.4.1 and none of the volumes would accept the installer.
Anyone any thoughts?
Same problem here. Corrupt zip archive?
Same problem for me, Mac OS X 10.4.1 - not accepted
The previous versions required that Xcode (the Developer Tools) was installed. I guess the same goes for this version, although the read-me doesn't say so.
If you examine the installer log you may see that there is a problem with running VolumeCheck i.e.
The problem I had is that this file is not executable, if you set the x permision (I used chmod) the you should be able to install the package.
Followup to the Tip by Michael Salmon, the permissions of two scripts in the Resources folder prevent the installer from working. There will surely be an update from Apple quickly, but until then you can fix the installer by doing the following in Terminal:
cd ~/Desktop/FontTools.pkg # or wherever you d/l'd it to
chmod a+x Contents/Resources/VolumeCheck
chmod a+x Contents/Resources/postflight
Thanks to smallduck I now have been able to install the package.
It might be fixed in the installer package already, as I didn't have this problem.
