Retroshare Issues on OSX10.7

Postby drbob7 » Wed Feb 08, 2012 11:10 pm

Hi,
I've had reports that Retroshare doesn't work properly on OSX 10.7 (see below)

I'd like to get to the bottom of this problem - But I don't have a 10.7 installation.
If anyone has better luck - or manages to solve this permissions problem.
Please let me know.

thx.
drBob.

(Its translated from German... so the bad grammar is Google's fault!)

Hey all with each other!
I have a problem with RetroShare.
And indeed when you start ^ ^ because the error message is "Initialize failed. Wrong or missing installation of gpg." Use Mac OS Lion recently. I've done everything as it was in the manual, should actually work. GPG tools I've also installed all.
Lion used here someone? Does anyone have a suggested solution?
regards

edit:
So with the terminal:
sudo / Applications / Retroshare.app / Contents / MacOS / RetroShare
has it worked out then ^ ^ whatever reason, the only way works ^ ^ yes all have rights ... ^ ^
Why is that?

I don't know if this is limited to OSX 10.7 (though that's what I'm using), but in my case the problem was because gpg was in /opt/local/bin/ while RetroShare apparently looks in /usr/local/bin/. A temporary workaround to get RetroShare working is:

Code: Select all
sudo ln -s /opt/local/bin/gpg /usr/local/bin/


Hope that helps!

You just type it in the terminal (the Terminal app should be somewhere in your applications folder). You only need to type it once, it will create a permanent link on your disk.

I’m not a Mac user so I can’t guarantee the result though ;).
