[Solved] Preference pane settings do not save
« on: April 12, 2009, 03:24:33 PM »
The voodooPS2 preference pane settings do not save on my machine, they work fine 'til a reset, and then they are back to the defaults.

I have repaired permissions and this does not seem to have made a difference.

Looks like synapticsconfigload isn't installed correctly. Make sure this small app runs at every login

installer doesn't seem to place it in startupitems...

Can't find it on my system- is there anyway of successfully extracting it from the installer package to insert manually?

There are many methods one can use for letting something load at startup...
for example: one could put it to load in /etc/rc or the other ways...

The problem seems to come from the LaunchAgent plist file.

I modified mine with Lingon to set the value RunAtLoad wich wasn't present in the original one. Attached it to let you test if works for everyone (Copy it in /Library/LaunchAgents).

It seems to work here.

Don't forget that the app itself is buggy (generates this on console window , as someone already noticed)
Code: [Select]

Unfortunately I'm not very familiar with this thing called ObjC. If you can fix these memory leaks your help would be very appreciated

I'm afraid I can't help with that as I don't even have Xcode installed on my computer. Sorry, and wish someone will help, the VoodooPS2 is a really great kext and fullfilled the dreams of numerous people (including me), too bat it comes with such a bad installer.

Mine does not load, same as the original plist, pls help

(sorted that out) - since permission has to be set to read only in order to load

Hello,

After the installation, I saw that the permissions was not correctly set for the directory /.voodoops2 and the binary /.voodoops2/synapticsconfigload.

Could you verify ?

Just for info, I corrected the permissions as follow :

sudo chown 0:0 /.voodoops2
sudo chown 0:0 /.voodoops2/synapticsconfigload
sudo chmod 775 /.voodoops2
sudo chmod 775 /.voodoops2/synapticsconfigload

Regards,
