STK under Simple Finder?

STK under Simple Finder?

Postby Zantac » 10 Jul 2010, 20:12

Hey all,

I downloaded STK today for my sons, who both have accounts on my iMac that are restricted to Simple Finder. The only problem is that the game doesn't even appear in the applications list to allow access to it. When I locate the game and select it, I am told that it does not work with the limitations I have selected for his account. This is the only app I have ever had with this problem.

I did find this page from Apple support.

Is this the right place to report an issue like this?

Thanks!

Hi,

yes it's the right place to ask; however did the message mention why the application could not be used from simple finder? It would help us a lot if we could know why it happens

Hi again,

sorry for double post. Following that link you posted, I got an idea you could try. Can you open file
SuperTuxKart.app/Contents/Info.plist (get into the app bundle as needed)
and insert the following lines :

{l Code}: {l Select All Code}
   <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>net.sourceforge.supertuxkart</string>
   <key>CFBundleSignature</key> <string>SPTK</string>


(there will be other similar <key>...</key><string>....</string> lines, just insert that anywhere among them)

Back again! Thanks for the tip. I added the lines to the info.plist file and now the game shows up in the apps list to select but doesn't appear in the applications folder.

So, I figured out a workaround that involved just putting a shortcut to the app in their shared folder. Works well enough.

Thanks again.
