Has anybody else running Chirp on a Mac dealt with missing menu options? 


Is anybody familiar enough with OSX application packages to explain where app files are installed in the directory structure?


Anybody? Bueller? Bueller?

Thanks Ron - an error related to where Chirp is looking for the stock config files makes sense.


Now to the important question: how do I remedy this on a Mac? Downloading and dragging a file into the Applications folder is obviously different than how you would do a Windows/Ubuntu install. 


I did a quick scan of the Yosemite directory structure and couldn't find any Chirp files anywhere (besides the primary Chirp app).

Continuing the testing, I installed chirp with "python setup.py install" while in the "chirp-daily-20150513" directory.

Setup installed the stock config files in "/usr/local/share/chirp/stock_configs" while the chirp expects to find them in "/usr/share/chirp/stock_configs".

Looks like a misunderstanding between chirp and the setup.py defaults, that may affect Mac as well as Ubuntu.

Quick and dirty fix, I created a symbolic link at the expected directory with "ln -s ../local/share/chirp /usr/share/chirp".  I think I had to restart chirp twice before it picked up the "File->Open stock config" and "Radio>Import from stock config" menu items.

Rich,

I am running chirp on Ubuntu 14.02.  I can create your symptoms if I delete both directory "chirp-daily-20150513/stock_configs/" and "~/.chirp/stock_configs/" (during init, chirp copies chirp-daily stock config files to ~/.chirp/stock_config and initializes the application to use the files under my home directory).

I don't "install" chirp but simply extract the daily build and run it in place.  An installed version may expect the source stock_configs/ files elsewhere (I think /usr/share/chirp on Ubuntu).

I don't know much about the Mac, but for some reason it can't seem to find the stock_config/* files that are part of the distribution so it doesn't create the corresponding menu items.

Morning All,


I downloaded the daily build that was made available this morning.  No luck - the Import from stock config option is still nowhere to be found. 




Here are all of the choices under the Menu options: 


CHIRP: Get Help Online / About / Services / Hide / Hide others / Show All / Quit


File: New / Open / Recent / Save / Save As / Import / Export / Close


Edit: Cut / Copy /Paste / Delete / Select All / Move Up /Move Down / Exchange / Properties / Start dictation / Emoji & Symbols


View: Columns / Hide Unused Fields / Smart tone modes / Change language


Radio: Download from Radio / Upload to Radio / Import from Data Source / Query from Data Source / Channel defaults / Stop


Help: Report Statistics / Enable developer functions


The only greyed out choice is Stop (under Radio).


KK7DS Python Runtime R10 is installed. I was able to successfully download info from RepeaterBook, so Chirp is partially working. Just no sign of stock config anywhere.

So if you click "File", is there an "Open stock config" option? This would be the same files. They just open in a separate tab. You would just cut-and-paste them to where you want them instead of import them directly.

You'll have to bear with me, I'm not a Mac person. You do have the
"KK7DS Python runtime" installed, right?
