Hi

I'd just installed MarvinBeans 5.0.6 on my iMAc running Mac OS X 10.5.4. However, I have a problem launching MarvinSketch. It gives me an unknown error. When I click Stack Trace, the following is generated:

I also get the same error on a Mac Pro running Mac OS X 10.5.3 and on a MacBook Pro running Mac OS X 10.4.11.

Thanks for your help,

Can you give the java version?
Is MarvinView working for you? If yes, you check software environment by selecting About option in the Help menu. (MarvinView and Sketch use the same Java.)
If no, just open a Terminal window and type the following statement, to print java version:
Code:
java -version

Same here for me. MarvinView and MarvinSpace launch fine for me.

Thank you. That worked.

One more small error with this version is that the "help" tab in MarvinSketch is very slow. It will often register the program as "not responding".

Yes, we know about this issue. We are investigating what can cause the problem.

This problem still exists in 5.1.0. I see the beach ball spinning for quite a while (abt 1.5min), though the programme doesn't crash.

Ditto for the insert tab, though the waiting time is shorter.

It is a general OS X issue (not a Marvin specific one) because the Help menu of other applications open also slowly (e.g. Camino or Adobe Reader).
We have not found any workaround for this issue yet but we continue the research.

We have made faster the opening of help menu. The next release (5.1.4) will include this improvement.
