Dear e-lang mailing list and Andre Weinand:
This bug report  seems to describe the current problem with running
E/Java  with SWT on Mac OS 10:
However, when I tried the suggested fix -- using "java_swt" instead of
"java" -- I get different behavior but not working behavior.
"rune --version" reports:
E version: ?? at /usr/local/stow/e/e/
on Java version: 1.4.2_05 at
on OS: Mac OS X version: 10.3.7 on ppc (Darwin/Power Macintosh)
for zooko in US
I'm not sure why the E version is missing. I'm using E 0.8.33b,
installed with my "inst-e.bash" script with a couple of tweaks.
I'm using SWT 3063 (which comes with Eclipse 3.0.1).
If I run the following cmdline:
rune -cpa "/usr/local/lib/swt.jar:/usr/local/lib/swt-pi.jar"
... I get the minchat window, but no menu. It appears to be unable to
receive focus or to receive key or mouse events. The Mac OS 10
"currently running applications" menu (alt-tab) doesn't include any
entry for java, e, or minchat. I can click on the red "close" button
to make the app go away.
(By the way, this experiment takes between 30 and 60 seconds, which
makes this kind of experimentation tedious...)
If I edit rune and set JCMD to java_swt, then I get the minchat GUI
with the "spinning beachball" mouse pointer showing that it is not
responding. There is still no menu. "java_swt" appears in the
currently running applications list. I can't click the red "close"
button, so I have to stop the program by returning to the command-line
and hitting C-c.
