Toast 8 doesn't launch on PowerMac G4

Question

Hey,

 

I tried to install Toast 8 Titanium on my PowerMac G4 Dual 867, but it doesn't launch! What's the matter about? I checked system requirements, but it fully fits them. On my MacBook Pro, the iBook or the Mac mini it starts and works really great. Can you help, please?

 

Tanks a lot!

Try moving the app from the folder to the desktop, see if it will launch. I don't know why but sometimes that works with apps.

I'm on a Dual G4 1.42 MDD FW800 with 2 GB RAM and it works fine...
Thank you for your feedback. I'm on a Dual 867 with 1,5 GB RAM and it dosn't launch. It shortly appears in the dock, and then it disappears and nothing happens. I deleted the preferences, but they seem to be created by an older version. Toast 8 Titanium doesn't creat them on the incomplete startup. And I repaired permission, but nothing gets Toast to work. :)

 

Looks like that older G4 models aren't supported? That would be a big pain for me!

 

Moving the application to the desktop doesn't work for me! :huh:

Open up console in your utils folder

 

Click the logs icon in the top left, if it is not already on the console.logs, then then click that one

Should be the top log

 

ok now click the clear icon, now try to open toast, tell me what appears in the console window

 

 

I think speedy y420 has something to do the the Fusion codec...could be wrong thou..even so after trashing it, app still wont launch

 

Tried making new account but still will not launch....hmmmm

Come on big cheeses... suggestions please :)

It doesn't write anything if I do so. Not even the thing he mentioned in his post.

There are a few other threads addressing this issue..roxio should be looking into this hopefully...take heart in the fact that its not only us with this problem

 

Ill keep you posted if i fix it..if you'll do like wise

 

It says the same thing in console when i open toast 7 (launches fine) so this cant be anything to worry about

This may sound daft but I take it you are running 10.4.8 or higher and not 10.3

I'm on 10.4.8, yes. Server verion, but 10.4.8. Don't think that this is the problem. The others have this problem, too.

 

And, yes, it does fit all given system requirements!

I suggest not disabling system fonts. Even the OS gives a warning when disabling Helvetica that says:

 

"The current selection contains system fonts. Disabling system fonts may adversely affect some applications."

 

I would say you are getting some adverse affects from this.

I totally understand the problems with helvetica.dfont. I've tried to explain font management to freshburn but he ignored me. No "thanks for the info", or anything, which says to me he doesn't agree.

 

I've posted about font problems with Toast, but Roxio doesn't care, they won't give a clue, just buy our product and deal with the bugs. I'll never buy Toast again. More info in the link below.

At least some of us have a clue, huh? :)

Enjoy your finder burning.

I've never used Finder burning in the past, and I won't in the future either.

 

It's perfectly okay to move System fonts around if you know what you're doing. As long as some version of helvetica is active it's okay, it doesn't have to be the blessed Apple .dfont. If you had bothered to read what guguss wrote, in the professional world, outside of internet surfers and forum lurkers, the helvetica.dfont conflicts with postscript and true type versions and can't be used by most imagesetters. Do you even know what an imagesetter is? If not you're out of your league on this.

 

Just can't admit you're wrong about this, can you? Did you even bother to download and read through the PDF on font management in OS X I pointed you to? Or are you too narrow minded to learn something about other peoples needs outside of your little world. Yoda would be pleased not with that. :)

We've been a bit quiet this week since the entire Mac team has been over at Macworld, but yes it's Saturday night and we're reading through the forums and working on issues as best we can.

I've spoken with our engineering team about this already and we absolutely shouldn't be crashing. That said, until there is another work around the font needs to be enabled. We are still working on this one...
