I just upgraded to 10.4. When I launch JBidWatcher, the main window’s tabs don’t show except for a clipped “current” tab. You can see what I mean here:

I’ve tried reinstalling JBW. I’ve tried completely emptying the .jbidwatcher folder in my home directory. Nothing seems to change this behavior. This is with 1.0.1 – I downloaded it today.

Any ideas? Thanks.

BTW – I can right click on the “current” tab. Everything was working previous to upgrading from 10.3.9 to 10.4.10.

Not that it helps you but this didn’t happen to me when I upgraded. I don’t see anything described in the upgrade notes (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=305533) which might have interacted badly with your software install either. I’m not sure what to suggest. Sorry.

Sometimes I’ve found that downloading just the .x updates from apple do not fully update my system or leave everything in a fully working state once completed. I have found that by downloading the full updates and installing them I have much fewer problems.

Did you install just the .9-.10 update or the full 10.4.10 combo update available from this location http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ ?

There is also newer version of the java runtime available from apple’s site that I don’t think is included in the os update packs. I was having some java graphics problems before installing it. Can you verify your java version or just download it, install it and let us know the results?

Link to latest java runtime at apple: http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/javaformacosx104release5.html

Thanks!

I checked the version and get:
[~] $ java -version
java version “1.5.0_07”
Java™ 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_07-164)
Java HotSpot™ Client VM (build 1.5.0_07-87, mixed mode, sharing)

Also, I installed 10.4 from CD and then ran Software Update to update everything.

Thanks!

Ok, I installed the Java from Apple. Same version. I logged in as root rather than me and it works fine, so apparently something I have installed is fouling it up. I’ll post when I figure it out.
Thanks all.

You know I have that same type of problem on a mac mini of mine. It does not occur on any of my other mac’s and I’ve never been able to figure it out so yes I would be interested in hearing the solution. Personally I’m just going to delete my username on that machine and re-create it and hope that everything turns out ok.
