Straaaange problem in Logic Express 7.2

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I have this really weird bug/problem... in Logic Express 7.2.

The prog itself seems to work fine, I can hear music playing without stuttering, etc.

All other stuff on the system is working fine, too.

 

But here is the problem which renders Logic unusable right now:

 

In every editor window (or arrange window) Logic doesn't detect a held mouse button. !.

When I click and HOLD the left button it still reacts as if i had only clicked (released the button immediately).

This means I can't drag/size/mark multiple objects at all. Or draw notes.

Strange thing is, that if I create a virtual instrumen (ES1 or sth.) and open its interface the "hold mouse button" works without problems on faders, etc.

It DOES NOT in the track mixer!

When i open a project and select a region with the name-tool and the rename-box opens I can mark parts of the text in that tiny box: holding button works. It also does in the preferences dialogs.

 

Reeeeeaaallly weird.

Also I have no problems at all with the mouse in any other program yet.

 

Any ideas? Help?

 

System specs:

AMD x2 3800+

A8N-SLI-Premium

512MB

x1600-XT (QE/CL working)

PS2 mouse and keyboard

OSX running on an external USB drive (native)

 

 

Greets,

Thias.

hey there,

wich version of tiger are you using ? i remember someone with that kind of problem before in 10.4.5, i think. and it was related to IOPCIFamily.kext , try replacing with an older or newer version of that kext, in your extensions folder.

good luck :thumbsdown_anim:

Hi!

Hmm, I am using 10.4.6 so they should be pretty new.

I searched the forums A LOT but couldn't find anything related.

Do you remember anything about that problem?

 

BTW... just tried: This happens with an USB mouse also....

i remember reading that sometimes it happens to powerpc users, and it was not a mouse or usb problem , but an ATI graphic cards issue. The solution was to replace the IOPCIFamily.kext from 10.4.4 , but these days it probably has been fixed.

try getting that kext from 10.4.4 or update to 10.4.7...

it has always been like that ?

japp. but it only happens in logic. writing and marking text, dragging objects on the desktop: no problem at all....

I'll try to get 10.4.7...

I saw this problem too.

 

I have 10.4.6 with an ATI X1600.

 

Did anyone solve this?

 

I did go up to 10.4.7 at one point, but it kept locking up on me at random times.

 

Thanks....

Ok, I got it to work now.

 

I first replaced the 10.4.7 IOPCIFamily.kext, but it didn't make a difference.

 

Then, replaced 10.4.4 IOPCIFamily.kext and that worked.

 

Hope I don't see other sideffects now.

 

Thanks for the info....

Still no perfect solution...

 

I'm seeing other problems with the 10.4.4 IOPCIFamily.kext, so I'm going to try a full 10.4.7 install and see if both issues go away.

...what other problems do you have with the 10.4.4 kext?#

Anything really bad?

Maybe I could try that, too.

Also would be could if you could report back how your 10.4.7 installation went...

 

Strange problem, isn't it?

The problems I saw were around in a window, it was leaving pieces of the text after I moved the icon. Also, I don't know if this was an issue with 10.4.4, but in Logic, while playing an instrument, the volumn would get moved down to -23.

 

I'm in 10.4.7 now, and everything seems to work, but I've been busy to play with it too much. I know the selection problem did go away though.
