FinderPop 2.2.2 | Thrillseekers | Snow Leopard 32-bit *ONLY*

Postby turly » 13 Sep 2009, 23:14

FinderPop 2.2.2 THRILLSEEKER BETA "32 bits is plenty!" is now available at: http://www.finderpop.com/FP222-ThrillSe ... d-Only.zip

I got 10.6 installed last night, so I could finally work on FP. This interim release is to provide a small bit of Snow-Leopard (10.6) compatibility. If you don't use 10.6, or aren't willing to put up with what is undeniably beta software, don't bother with this version.
Please DON'T PUBLICISE THIS as it's waay too early to inflict on your average user.

Restrictions:

* SNOW LEOPARD ONLY (no 10.4/10.5)
* Non-Apple apps ONLY (not quite true: 32-bit Apple apps work fine, but not the Finder...)
* 386 ONLY (no PPC)
* 32-BIT ONLY (won't work in 64-bit apps)


- New (for FinderPop) method of adding itself to apps
- This version of FP seems to work fine with 32-bit applications on Snow Leopard 10.6.1
- The FinderPop "Processes" submenu now tells you if an app is 64-bit when you Cmd-Option to get info on it
- 64-bit apps don't do Carbon. FinderPop does a *LOT* of Carbon. It's going to be a fun rewrite in Cocoa...
- You can force 64-bit Apple apps to run in 32-bit mode - see, for example, http://www.rainmakerinc.com/kb/index.php?article=95
- Unfortunately the Finder always operates in 64-bit mode. Which is why I'm working on the 64-bit version - otherwise it would be called "Everything but Finder"-Pop :-/

--turly

As for the 64-bit rewrite, for me the most important feature is the click-in-unused-menubar facility, so that's first up.
I will eventually pull everything together into a 10.4/10.5/10.6-compatible release.

As usual, if there are any issues with this: http://www.fnarr.net/fp

...And so to bed.

Hi
Clicking on the menubar or the screen doesn't show Finderpop items in 32-bit or 64-bit on Snow Leopard 10.6.1 on my iMac
the pref seems OK.

Regards

Does not work for me. The pref pane functions ok but clicking on menu bar or anywhere else doesn't bring up FP.
FP worked fine for me pre Snow leopard. Mac is macbook , 4Gig.

See above. This beta will only work with 32-bit applications (or applications forced to launch as 32-bit) and in those applications it will work only in the menu bar. The Finder is 64-bit only, so it will not work in the Finder.

Hi,
Thank you for developing this marvel!
I have lived happily with it until this Slow Leopard has appeared.
I'm a right clicker and now I'm desperate!
The last version of FP doesn't work properly.
Right click shows FP menus inconsistently. Some times it does it, some times doesn't.
When running FP also will avoid right clicks for copy and paste.
:(

Please, fix it.

Thanks a lot in advance,

FP 2.2.2
