FinderPop 2.2.3.1-BETA | Thrillseekers | Snow Leopard *ONLY*

Postby turly » 27 Sep 2009, 17:14

FinderPop 2.2.3.1 THRILLSEEKER BETA "Thirty days hath September" is now available.

(It fixes the click-in-unused-menubar problem in the older 2.2.3 TSB, which is still available here. I was able to reproduce the problem only by faffing around with screen resolutions and placement, hopefully that was the core issue affecting some people.)

This interim release is to provide a bit more Snow-Leopard (10.6) compatibility. If you don't use 10.6, or aren't willing to put up with what is undeniably beta-level software, this version is not for you.
Please DON'T PUBLICISE THIS as it's waay too early to inflict on your average user.

Highlights:

* STILL NO CONTEXTUAL MENU SUPPORT… however...
* Click in unused portion of menubar now works in both 64-bit and 32-bit apps.
* Command-control-clicking a window or the Desktop in the Finder will bring up a Contents menu - if there is NOTHING selected in that window. If there is something selected, you'll have to de-select it before Cmd-Ctrl-Clicking will work. (This is to avoid confusion - I'm still figuring out how to get the item clicked on in the Finder so that Cmd-Ctrl-Clicking works better - my Services hack does not work all the time.) Note that the "Must be a control-click"' in the FP prefpane may also need to be taken into account - mine is off.
* SNOW LEOPARD ONLY (no 10.4/10.5)
* 386 ONLY (no PPC)

[Edit-20091004] Another thing which might screw up FP's notion of "is this click in an unused menubar area" is the translucency of the menubar combined with an irregular pattern on your desktop (eg, a photo.) If you can't get menubar popups in FinderPop, you could try turning off menubar translucency in System Preferences -> Desktop & Screen Saver -> Desktop.

Still working on extending the contextual menus in the Finder...

Relevant bits from last episode:
- The FinderPop "Processes" submenu now tells you if an app is 64-bit when you Cmd-Option to get info on it

--turly

Next up is the FinderPop core rewrite in Cocoa...
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

I just updated the main post on this page with the 2.2.3.1 beta to fix the click-in-unused-menubar problem that some people were having. As usual, let me know if I screwed up... again :-)

As usual, this is just great stuff. Getting FinderPop to work at all, in Snow Leopard, is just unbelievable. Turly your are the bee's knees :D
Thanks so very much for all your hard work. All of us Mac users are just so freakin' lucky to have you in our world.
Thanks again, and keep up the good work!

Mine is NOT working :( The INDISPENSIBLE 'empty menu bar' is death!
Is there a way to send a configuration report that can help?

Bongiorno GianMarco:

Did you see the bit about turning off Translucent Menu Bars on the announcement page?

[Edit-20091004] Another thing which might screw up FP's notion of "is this click in an unused menubar area" is the translucency of the menubar combined with an irregular pattern on your desktop (eg, a photo.) If you can't get menubar popups in FinderPop, you could try turning off menubar translucency in System Preferences -> Desktop & Screen Saver -> Desktop.

It works again if you turn off Translucent Menu Bars.

Hi turly,
in my MacBookPro with Snow 10.6.1 before and 10.6.2 now, Finder Pop will work (sigh) only for the cmd-ctrl-clik on a window
all the other options not (twice sigh)
