Java SE6 Runtime not in Mountain Lion

I'm not certain if this was a recent change by Apple or has been true for some time.

I recently had my iMac in for an Apple Disk recall (bad batch of Seagate Drives apparently), and got it back with a "virgin" Mountain Lion install. (10.6.8).

It did NOT have the Java runtime installed. Takes 2 minutes to download and install it, but it wasn't there.

I have a vague remembrance that Apple pulled Java 6 in one of their recent updates, but they might have just upgraded to Java 7.

BTW Sapience announced that Beta for Update 9 should begin next week.

Re: Update needed for new Native Mac Client

Quote:
The current iteration of the Native Mac Client (released 1 November) stores the Plugins (and other stuff) in "Apple's place." ....

~/Library/Application Suport/com.turbine.lotroclient/

see: http://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Mac_Client for current information.

That location is "the Apple Way" for such things... except that ~/Library is now "hidden" (since Lion), which makes it less than accessible.

So, will Turbine change it over to ~/Documents to be consistent with the Windows Version... who knows?
thanks for the heads up. I can always try to make the app check to see if that folder exists first before defaulting to the current location.

An interesting bug

As opposed to typing the name of the directory (as my earlier report), If you "Browse" to a "non-existant" directory for the Downloads, It does NOT create that folder.

Creating the folder, and things work as expected.

Under configuration -- Browse to a directory and then type in a sub-directory (folder.)

Mountain Lion information

I'm now running Mountain Lion, and somehow managed to delete my previous copy of LPC - Java.

First I simply re-unzipped the previously downloaded file I had on disk. Claimed the app was dammaged. (see message below).

So I downloaded a fresh copy by clicking on the name on the top of the page.

It download "plugincompendium-1.1-java.zip

This unzips with no problem as expected.

However, on launch, a Gatekeeper window pops-up:

Quote:
"Plugin Compendium.app" is damaged and can't be opened. You should move it to the Trash."
Setting Gatekeeper to "Always," ... System Preferences/Security & Privacy ... "Allow applications downloaded From:"

I get the "normal" Gatekeeper pop-up...

Quote:
"Plugin Compendium.app" is an applicatoin downloaded from the Internet. Are you sure you want to open it?
Clicking "open" allows the app to launch as expected.

Note: This is the way Gatekeeper is cureently behaving. Gatekeeper does have bugs. Expect changes in behavior with OSX 10.8 updates.

Note also: This permissions issue "should" only occur once, on first launch.

One small request

Love the program overall, thank you for the effort and time. Would it be possible to add the description information panel to the bottom of the "Installed Plugins" tab, the way it shows up in the "Add New Plugins" tab?

LOL discovered an

Under Mountain Lion 10.8

java version "1.6.0_33"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_33-b03-424-11M3720)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.8-b03-424, mixed mode)

Select Configure...

I wanted to change the location as I was switching disks, so I "cut" then end off the existing file name...

as I began typing the NEW filename, LPC began creating a Folder (directory) for each letter as I typed it.... Until I realized what was happening, I wound up with
folders:
A
Ap
App
Appl
Appli
Applic
Applica
Applicat
Applicati
Applicatio
Application
etc....

Browsing does not cause this effect.

This is the guide I used to get it working on linux. It talks about configuring it for the mac..

http://lorebook.lotro.com/wiki/LOTRO..._OS/X#MAC_OS_X

The only difference for me is I skipped the installation portion.

I had a windows install of the game on another computer. I copied the whole turbine folder across network to my linux box and configured wine according to that article to run it. If I recall correctly mac users use Crossover Games (which is based on wine) instead of straight WINE.

The launcher window is the only thing WINE & Crossover games don't support. Someone made a project call PyLoTRO that you install to take the place of the updater / launcher screen for LoTRO.

Pending no more bugs found in either version of LPC.. I'll probably be spending immediate future doing improvements to my plugin Compendium. Loto-wiki gave me permission to use their data, and I really want to get quest & deed information updated.

Yup... default location is now /tmp.

Personally, I change mine to Downloads.

One of the reasons I don't think it is adopted is because I don't think I have explained what needs to be done effectively.
I'll be taking a stab at that over at lotro-wiki.com as I document the entire current Lua/Plugins situation. Pointing back to the wiki here for most all scripting info.

TB downloaded and installed no problem. (and is now managed!)
Great to hear it worked for you. My macbook is rather old, so while it worked for me its always great to hear it does for others. Thanks for testing!

The "Default" for the "Plugin Downloads" is still the "javaism" -- /var/...
Easily changed to "/Users/<userid>/Downloads" -- which DOES stick when the app is closed "normally" - i.e. using the "red dot."

Thanks for the hard work -- now to beat on the rest of the Plugin authors to join in the LPC Bandwagon.

Hopefully, I'll impact that somewhat with
http://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Lua_Plugins and the related articles.

Alright..

I submitted a fix for the settings issue.
I also changed the default download location for mac.
I also included the app as a mac "application" that can be dragged into application folder.



Regarding tonic bars.. It won't be managed until I "add" it to the LPC data feed. The author's zip file does not conform to proper layout that LPC. Once that is done I can add to feed and it will start installing it.

EDIT: Tonic bars updated this past night, and I've added TonicBars to the feed.

Try removing the .plugincompendium file you manually created, the letting LPC install Tonicbars to clear up the Unmanaged problem.
