Hello,

I recently did a clean install of snow leopard to get a fresh start. Viscosity is working fine, except growl notifications are not working. They are working for other things, just not viscosity. Any ideas?

Hi DonMagee,

Growl notifications should be working (at least, they have worked when tested at our end). If you go to the Apple menu, select System Preferences, click the Growl icon, and finally click the Applications tab, is Viscosity in the list? If so, click the Configure button - are connect and disconnect notifications enabled?

Cheers,
James

Yes, the are both enabled. I reinstalled Viscosity and growl just to make sure there wasn't something wrong with either install. Cyberduck, firefox, growltunes, etc all give me notifications. Right now only only Viscosity isn't giving me any growl notifications.

I am using Growl 1.1.6 and Viscosity 1.0.5.

The only thing I noticed that is different then when I was using OSX 10.5 is that growl has to reload the system preferences pane before it shows me settings (it switches from 64bit to 32bit).

Hi DonMagee,

I've just included the latest Growl release with the 1.0.6b5 beta release which you may like to try, however I am seeing the same issue on one of the Snow Leopard machines here. I'll continue to look into it, and hopefully include a fix in the final 1.0.6 release.

Cheers,
James

Hello,

I tried the beta build and still no growl notifications. I'll keep an eye out for any future builds.


Thanks.

Yes, I'm adding it as a known issue to the latest build. Hopefully we can figure out what is going on!

Just a quick update: Growl notifications should now be working under Snow Leopard with the latest beta build (1.0.6b7 at the time of writing). It can be downloaded at:
