Where version 4.0b5 was smooth as silk for me, under 4.0b6 scrolling is almost completely unresponsive. (I'm running OS 10.9.3 on a late 2012 iMac.)
P.S. Still barely responsive— and very slow and jerky when it does momentarily respond— even after repairing permissions and running Disk Warrior. This is with a Magic Mouse.
I found the problem: For "Inertia+," I hadn't checked "Must lift fingers." Once I did, all is well. (Interestingly, I've never checked "Must lift fingers" in the past, and never had this problem... but no biggie.)
I love Glims, and I agree that the authors should simply charge a modest fee, rather than screwing around with ads. My complaint, though, is that in this new version I CAN'T GET RID OF BING! No matter how many times I uncheck it in the search engines list, it's re-checked and listed at the top— i.e., is now the default— of my search engines after every restart. As for choosing which is to be the default, I see only the option to choose which to make the search suggestions source, and I chose Google. Nevertheless, Bing keeps reasserting itself. Boo. Hiss.
This version (2.9) won't install.
Won't work for me with an Apple wireless keyboard and late 2012 iMac, running 10.8.2. I was trying to remap forward slash to forward delete. It worked immediately after I made the setting, but the setting doesn't persist after restart, whether or not I enter KeyRemap4MacBook as a startup item.
Thanks for that link, Sgilbert. That version works well so far. (I only played one game.)
Repeatedly crashes immediately when I attempt to open it in 10.6.8.
Terrific software, offering MANY more options than Apple's driver for the mouse. Unfortunately, version 0.78 won't recognize my Magic Mouse (even with fresh batteries). This is on a 2006 1st-generation Intel Core Duo iMac, running 10.6.8. I had to revert to version 0.75 of BTT, which works fine for me.
Amazing. I had emailed my comments above to the developer, and in less than an hour he emailed me back with a link to a fixed version 0.78! It now works for me. What great support! I'm very glad that I had donated, and I encourage all users of BTT to do so.
This is from Jeff Gamet of MacObserver.com, in response to my email to him about the problems several of us have been having with Safe Download Version: "We have Adam working on an update and should have a new version out next week, assuming there aren't any big surprises that crop up. We packed Adam up and shipped him off to a conference in New York this week, so he's kind of tied up until he gets back to the office. I'll make sure we run an article as soon as the new version is available."
Suddenly Safe Download Version won't launch, instead giving me the message "Can't make 'Oct' into type integer." I've tried re-installing SDV, but still get the same message. As little as about two weeks ago it worked fine, reporting back that my machine was up-to-date with Apple's Safe Download version 24. I've read that there's malware in the wild that disables Apple's Safe Download feature, and that the malware is transmitted via a Flash installer that is not genuine, but I haven't used any Flash installer in ages. I also have no idea if the described malware would affect Safe Download Version, which is not an Apple application. Is anyone else experiencing this malfunction of Safe Download Version, or can anyone suggest what might be wrong?
I apologize. I meant to post this as a troubleshooting comment/question, not a rating. My error. It's clearly a 5-star product.
I just ran "defaults read /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.meta Version" in Terminal and it reveals I now have version 31 of Apple's Safe Downloads/XProtect on my machine. Running "defaults read /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.meta LastModification" reveals that version 31 was downloaded/installed on October 11th. Can anyone confirm that that is the most recent version? Thanks in advance.
