Re: [pcgen] Calling all Mac Intel PCGen users
- The installer worked perfecty for me on my Mac Pro (OS X.4.9) the
last time I used it (RC2, haven't tried the RC3 yet).
However, since as you said the installer does nothing more than copy
the program in the /Applications folder, I don't think it is very
useful (using an installer to copy a file seems a bit like windows
thinking to me :p )
You could perhaps try to add a link to the Applications folder on
the .dmg (not an alias but a "unix" link), but since the Applications
folder is visible in the left panel bar since 10.3 (or was it 10.2 ?)
it's not really important.
To conclude, thanks for this installation method, I like it much more
than an installer.
