Bioimagesuite on MAC OS 10.11
Hello,

under the newest OS Brainimagsuite won't start anymore. 

I receive this error:

BioimageSuite ready to run.
Type bis.tcl to get the starting menu (/Users/xxxx/bioimagesuite32)

Referenced from: /Users/xxxx/bioimagesuite3_base/vtk52/bin/vtk

Any suggestions or workarounds would be a great help.

Yes, Apple broke things. It will take us a few weeks to repair the damage unfortunately.

Hello,

I am getting this same error after freshly downloading and installing bioimagesuite.

Are there any new updates to the status of this Mac OS 10.11 error?

Thanks for your insights!

You can download unofficial releases from this directory

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/i5ed09aa1qvtg...

We will upload these to the web page in the next day or so(they have moved this to a new content management system which makes it a pain to update)

Any feedback would be appreciated. We are still doing some final testing but at least they should install OK.

Hello Xenios,

please check the behavior and functionality of the mouse pointer in the Electrode Control window. It seems to me that parts of the GUI and the responsive areas for specific mouse actions are not well aligned.

RE: Bioimagesuite on MAC OS 10.11
Will do. Thanks. What version of XQuartz are you using? Can you point to a specific example?

RE: Bioimagesuite on MAC OS 10.11
I have installed XQuartz 2.7.8

Under http://tinyurl.com/jroatjl you can find a short movie showing the behavior. I just started Bioimagesuite then clicked on Editors and Electrode Editor.

RE: Bioimagesuite on MAC OS 10.11
Hello BIS experts, 

I was wondering if there are updates regarding the pointer issues with the electrode control window? 

I have the same issue. Thus, when I open the electrode editor the two windows open correctly. But, on the control window the mouse pointer is active about 1cm below where it shows on the screen. 

I am using
OSX 10.11.3, macbook pro
XQuartz 2.7.8 (xorg-server 1.16.4)
Bioimagesuite 3.5b1, Jan. 5th, 2016 (downloaded from dropbox link above)

Please let me know if you need any other information.

Thank you!

RE: Bioimagesuite on MAC OS 10.11
What happens if you set VOI size to 0 (under Electrode Control/Volume Trace)?

RE: Bioimagesuite on MAC OS 10.11
Thanks for your fast response!

Setting VOI to 0 did not change anything unfortunately. 

However, I figured out work around for now though. if you have the electrode editor open, then click the the XQuarz tab Window, then Zoom will fix the problem. It would still be great if this small problem could be fixed. Thanks a lot for looking into this!

RE: Bioimagesuite on MAC OS 10.11
Interesting... there is mismatch between window size as BioImage Suite thinks it is and actual window size probably and then zoom somehow rests it. I will test again and see. Good workaround!
