I can't seem to install a theme into Bowtie on 10.5.6
I've tried double clicking, dragging into the right directories, but still, the themes list is empty. What am I doing wrong? confused

I've tried everything, restarting the app, even restarting the system and nothing

i'm certainly no computer whiz but the only way i know how to do it is to double click on the theme. i don't think there's a directory per se, of themes that you can just add one into. anyone got a clue?

kill the app, for reals tho no stupid silly "force quit"

terminal:
$ killall bowtie.app

then restart the computer
then reinstall bowtie.app using appzapper to kill it off your system. then double click the theme.

Weird. It's always double-click for me, and then a Growl notification saying it has been installed. I've got Laurent on AIM, next time he's online I'll ask him about your problem.

If he double clicks the theme after he's deleted Bowtie itself, surely that's not going to work. I don't understand what you mean.

That's a strange problem. I rarely use bowtie but i can't suggest anything that hasn't been said already. Weird.

So, you actually got themes working? What did you do to them?

the themes that i had on bowtie were installed months ago, i never really download more themes unless they look reallllly good tongue

but I'm guessing its Safari 4, its bugged out a few applications (Microsoft messenger for example). The same could have happened here, try uninstalling safari 4 and then trying to install some themes.

I have Safari 4 on my Mac and Bowtie seems to work fine, some themes don't look correct though. I'd recommend completely deleting the application using AppZapper, and reisntalling it.
