Wouldn't connect to network, so used this app here to fix it:

http://www.gnutellaforums.com/other-limewire-clone-versions/101773-connection-fixes-various-clients-including-cabos-acqlite-all-limewire-clones.html

Now works fine aside from buggy issues mentioned in my previous post.

Works fine in Snow Leopard and Java 1.6. Only once had a connection problem but after obtaining a fresh connection file from Gnutella forums, Acqlite connects in a flash every time.

But yes, the command-z is obviously a bug, do not use that command with Acqlite. Simply manually delete/correct your text.

Unfortunately, Acqlite is getting a bit long in the tooth and while it still works, it's quite buggy and almost not worth using if you value system stability.

For instance, I've found that since I've been using Mac OS 10.6.8 and the last build of 0.4.2(debug2) that you can find here:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/acqlite/files/Acqlite/

That java gets stuck and will keep running and mess with Safari and other things including slowing down some computer operations.

I have to go in and quit it from terminal (or you can quit java from activity monitor). This doesn't happen every time I run Acqlite, but every now and then expecially if Acqlite crashes.

Also, if I do command-z (undo) in Acqlite it crashes it immediately for some reason.

Hope there will be an update to this again someday.

Been using this app for a long time, several versions. It has always come through for me. Straightforward, intuitive interface, easy to use. It has never crashed on me and I've had it installed on many different Macs. I'm very glad it still works on OS X 10.7.1.

I was so excited to see a new program available to replace acquisition and frostwire (limewire), which stopped working for me. However after downloading and doing a few searches and getting absolutely no results, I'm frustrated. I thought maybe I was searching for something too obscure, but how can you do a search for Bob Dylan and get zero results????

I think you have to wait for Acqlite find the server (usually 4), and then search for files.

Just a warning. I pasted the wrong text into the search field and went I hit command-z to undo it, it completely locked up Acqlite and I had to force-quit the app.

Hopefully it'll get fixed later?

Simple, fast and now... STABLE! (at least for me, on 10.6.3)
Acqlite has really evolved since the last time I used it, more than one year ago.
It's currently the only Gnutella client with a native OS X GUI, and that alone would've crowned it the king of OS X Gnutella clients, since both LimeWire and FrostWire are STILL Java...

It's also faster than any other Gnutella client I've tried.
It didn't use to be like that some time ago, but I have to say Acqlite is kickass as an application, even if Gnutella is dead.

I have the same problem: the writeable icon above 'Search for files' is invisible. It is possible to search for files but I cannot see what I type...

BTW: The pane on the left hand side of the window disappeared too.


I tried to solve the problem by removing the application and any related files (i.e. /Application/Acqlite.app and /Users//Library/Application Support/Acqlite) and reinstalling the application.

But it doesn't solve the problem. I upgraded recently to Mac OS X 10.5.8 (from 10.4.11) but Acqlite worked without problems after this upgrade (at least temporarily)

Any suggestions?

I've had some files disappear after they finish downloading. It just started today, and not with every file. Where did these files go? I tried showing invisible files, but nothing was there.

Your download may be lost due to file corruption.
Current version of Acqlite automatically deletes corrupt file.
But the new option (choice of discard/keep file) should be added in the next release.

Regarding my previous comment. I have now managed to get Acqlite working by ditching its Gnutella file in the Library, replacing it with a copy of LimeWire's Gnutella file.

Boskabouter had trouble on 16 Sep 2008
I'm having a problem with the latest version of Acqlite and I hope that someone can help.
I have been using version 0.2.9 and, although with crashes, i have been able to download most of the things i needed, but, with version 0.3.1 I can't.
The problem is as follows: 0.3.1 connects to 4 peers in the network (5 in the older 0.2.9 version) I do a search, I get search results, doubleclick a file, it starts downloading and at some point i notice that the downloadspeed starts dropping and suddenly my network connection icon in Acqlite shows grey, no peer connections anymore and it just idles then, doing nothing anymore.......... :( My internetconnection just works, it's just Acqlite then.
I'm on adsl connection.
Version 0.9.2 works, although it crashes very often, does anyone know what my problem is or what i can do to solve this?

TIA
Paul

I'm on Leopard and Network says "connecting..." with no progress. Don't have this problem with Cabos, and I've got them set to the same ports. Not sure what the problem is, but it's a shame because this looks a lot cleaner than Cabos. Let me know if you can help.

Do you still have the problem with acqlite 0.3 ?

Maybe one of the tips helps.

Tip 1:
If you have Cabos running nicely on your mac, you can try the following: quit Acqlite, then copy the file "gnutella.net" from the "Cabos" folder (which is inside your "Application Support" folder) to the "Acqlite" folder (also inside the "Application Support" folder). After you copied that file start Acqlite.

Tip 2:
if Tip 1 does not help, you can delete the "Acqlite" folder (which is inside the "Application Support" folder) and the "net.sourceforge.acqlite.plist" file (which is inside the "Preferences" folder") and then start Acqlite again. This procedure deletes your preferences and you have to set them again.

Tip 3:
first do Tip 2, start Acqlite once, quit Acqlite then do Tip 1 and restart Acqlite.

---

I like Acqlite a lot and it is my favourite Gnutella client.
