TotalSpaces2 status under macOS 10.13 (High Sierra)


#21

Thanks for the reports. Working on it!


#22

please update. I am dying.


#23

You can try the following version of TotalSpaces2:

http://downloads.binaryage.com/TotalSpaces2-2.6.2.dmg

Known issues:

  1. There is a new osax component that requires SIP to be turned off to install if you didn’t already install 2.6.1
  2. It may well need an update when the next HS beta comes

@jking and @justme please try this version. I am not able to reproduce your issues - if they persist I’ll want to look at the console logs from your machines.


Move_window_to_space not working
#24

When I run 2.6.2 on 10.13 Beta (17A306f) I get the following console output:

Oddly enough, I did run the uninstaller, and re-install and it managed to connect to Dock after a couple failed attempts and then TS2 was working fine! It knew what space I was in, navigated my 3x3 grid, showed it in preferences and all that jazz! then I quit it, and went to relaunch it and OS X told me the app was damaged and I should move it to the trash. So, I did, then copied the app from the disk image back to my applcations folder, ran it, and it fails to connect. I’ve tried reinstalling and restarting a couple of times and haven’t been able to get it to connect to Dock again. Let me know if I can do any more digging! Thanks, @stephen!


#25

I tried it for the last couple of days, as of now there seems to be no problem in the new version.
BTW, I was using it as a trail before, but I just bought a copy, cheers.


#26

@jking Something strange going on here.

Uninstalling and re-installing should normally fix this kind of error.

Can you please search for messages from Dock in Console.app when you start TotalSpaces2?


#27

Sorry to make this thread so ugly… here’s what I see when I search “Dock” in Console.app when starting TS2:

#28

It looks like the wrong version of the plugin is being loaded.

I don’t know why that should be. Please check the contents of both /Library/ScriptingAdditions/ and /System/Library/ScriptingAdditions/

Under normal circumstances there should be nothing in /Library/ScriptingAdditions/ and TotalSpaces.osax in /System/Library/ScriptingAdditions/

But I’m wondering if you have some old files there.

Oh, also check contents of /System/Library/ScriptingAdditions/TotalSpaces.osax/Contents/Resources/

Thanks


#29

On a more general note, v2.6.2 is usably working with beta 4, but I will need to make an update, expect this soon.


#30

Sorry, I’ve been swamped the last few days… So, I cleaned everything else out of both ScriptingAdditions folders and restarted and TS2 kept failing to connect to Dock. In TotalSpaces.osax/Contents/Resources/ I see TotalSpacesInjector.sdef and a directory called English.lproj containing InfoPlist.strings. Interestingly, TS2 works fine for me (on the recently released PB3 even!) on other user accounts on my Mac - it’s just something about my main admin account that is preventing TS2 from connecting… I’ll poke around when I have more free time and let you know if I can figure out what is doing it. Thanks again, Stephen!


#31

You can find a new version of TotalSpaces2 here:

http://downloads.binaryage.com/TotalSpaces2-2.6.3.dmg

It should work better on beta 4.

Known issues:

  • There is a new osax component that requires SIP to be turned off to install if you didn’t already install 2.6.1 or 2.6.2

Also, @jking please try this one.


#32

I have same/similar issue as jking - my console just says this over and over:

I have uninstalled, checked the scripting folders, also used AppCleaner to uninstall as well.

When I open the preferences to create rows/cols nothing happens. I have zero rows/cols and clicking + does nothing. It says I have 16 desktops. Hot corners or viewing expose grid do nothing.


#33

Can you send me logs from when the app first started, filtered for TotalSpaces

And then again filtered for Dock.

That would be most helpful. If you are running v2.6.3 then there is additional debugging information, and I should be able to see better the issue.

To save pasting here you can email them to support@binaryage.com


#34

@cyberwombat that does sound like what I experience… Do you have another user account on your mac? If not, would you mind creating one and trying TS2 there? It works fine for me on other accounts, but there’s something on my main account that is messing things up… there’s also something going on that makes safari hang and bring my mac to a crawl after like 40 minutes that doesn’t happen on other accounts. I haven’t had time to properly suss out what it is, though!


#35

2.6.3 seems to be behaving the same as 2.6.2 for me, at least as far as launching and connecting to Dock. Works on my alternate account, but not my main… I’m sorry I haven’t had time to figure out why!


#36

I have good logs from @cyberwombat - I can see where the bug is, expect a new release soon.


#37

You may try this version: http://downloads.binaryage.com/TotalSpaces2-2.6.4.dmg

Apps set to full screen mode were causing problems, this has been resolved.


#38

Excellent. The recent release works perfectly on the latest developer beta on a current gen Mac Pro6,1 8-Core Dual D700’s with dual LG UltraFine 5K displays.


#39

For me as well. Seems to work perfect so far. Thanks!


#40

Here is a new version:

http://downloads.binaryage.com/TotalSpaces2-2.6.5.dmg

  • Fixed bug: “on all spaces” windows now appear correctly in overview grid and expose.
  • Fixed bug: when commanding a space change whilst in Mission Control, MC was not being cancelled.
  • Updated for High Sierra beta 5.
