Yosemite 10.10 Compatibility

Post by HansWurat » Tue Nov 11, 2014 10:33 am

Hi folks,

I've recently upgraded to MAC OSX 10.10 Yosemite and noticed something that should not occur... If I want to change the setting for Output in the preferences of Decibel the pane is not shown. See attached screenshot. I'm not sure where this bug is coming from (under 10.7 everything worked fine).
I installed Decibel using the AppStore.

Best regards,

PS: Here is the output on the console:

Code: Select all

Try moving OutputPreferencesView.nib from en.lproj to English.lproj. In fact, maybe move _all_ the contents of en.lproj into English.lproj. The fact that these two localization folders exist, both of them apparently for the English localization, looks like a bug to me.

Hi mattn,

Thank you for your suggestion. I've already tried that but when I copy the files over to the other folder Decibel won't start anymore... So no luck here.

I wouldn't mess with the application package content. Nothing wrong with it. Will also spoil the code signature.

Seems to me more a problem with the preferences file. Try removing the file:

this doesn't help either. It seems that this is indeed a bug that comes when using Yosemite 10.10.
Let's hope sbooth fixes this issue soon...

I've migrated to a different Mac using Yosemite, and Decibel is still playing my uncompressed (wav) files, but will not play sound from mp3 podcasts. It starts them and does a notification I don't want, but it isn't making sound. It does change the sample rate to the correct one, and moves the indicator, but no audio.

It seems the problem relates to having two folders inside the app containing resources, one called English.lproj and one called en.lproj. I think this is only an issue on systems that aren't using English as the default locale. I'm guessing that Mac OS X falls back to English.lproj for files that aren't present in localized form and ignores those present in en.lproj.

I will post a beta build for testing later this evening.
