Installing Bluefish on Mac OS X 10.4

SITUATION

I am trying to install Bluefish on Mac OS X 10.4

I have performed...

$ fink install bluefish

No error messages. When I start bluefish...

$ bluefish

I get...

Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

I have found...

$ fink install bundle-gnome gtkhtml3 gtkhtml3-dev gtkhtml3-shlibs
(http://threebit.net/mail-archive/mono-list/msg00049.html)

as one possible solution, but I don't know what to make of it as the error I get
is exactly what is described in the link above...

Failed: no package found for specification 'bundle-gnome'!

CONCLUSION/QUESTION

Perhaps I am missing a tarball or I just don't understand Apple's Darwin very
well.  It is certainly not a straight forward Linux situation.

Hi David,

maybe you just forgot to start X on your box. MacOSX is based on
BSD-Unix but does not use X Window normally. To use X programs you have
to start X first (comes with MacOSX) and then the program you want.
This affects almost all programs (with graphical output) offered
through fink and MacPorts.

Re: Installing Bluefish on Mac OS X 10.4

I have X11 installed already.

In the X11 terminal:

$ X -version

Results:

XFree86 Version 4.4.0 / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600)

Can't I just start bluefish from Darwin?

$ bluefish

Now I'm stumped... And that does not happen very often!

If you try to run bluefish from the X11 terminal, what exactly is the  
result?  Do you get "bluefish: command not found"?  If so, what  
happens if you do "/sw/bin/bluefish" (without the quotes)?  Does it run?

If so, the problem is that the fink installer does not properly set  
up your X11 environment, so that the bluefish exectuable is not in  
your PATH variable.  One solution is to edit your .xinitrc by adding  
"source /sw/bin/init.sh" at the start.  The init.sh script sets up  
the paths, etc.

Highlight colors in Mac OS X 10.4

Hi,

Is there some reason that bluefish does not use colors in my code running as an X11 application on a Mac (OS X 10.4)?

Thanks,

which Bluefish version are you using?
is the 'Document/Highlight syntax' menu enabled?

if you look in the preferences, are the syntax highlighting preferences OK?
