Apps crashing

I'm using 10.4.5 (myzar) and every time I open some applications, they either bounce in the dock and do nothing, or they run for about 30 seconds and crash. So far, this has happened with:

 

- Cyberduck (FTP) (Latest version)

- Azureus (Latest version)

Note: They are both universal binaries, so Rosetta/PPC isn't an issue.

 

Has anyone else had something like this happen? Or better yet, does anyone know how to fix this?

I have the same problem. I tried some applucations (universal binaries) - e.g. azureus or firefox. If I install the dmg I have not the permissions to copy the application from the desktop to a folder. Ok, I can do this in a terminal with sudo-L. But after copying it to my applications folder nothing happens. If I doubleklick the icon it bounces and then nothing happens.... waht can I do?

I'm using an intel laptop and everything else works fine (no problems with iworks or office:mac)

thanks a lot....

With the file on your desktop it's pretty easy.

 

Run terminal and do:

cd ~/Desktop

ls; # to get the exact name

su; # root must be enabled, if not see below.

# enter root password when prompted

# if the name has a space in it prepend each space with a \

# ex: "My Game.app" would be My\ Game.app

tar cfp - NAME_TO_MOVE | (cd /Applications/ && tar xfp -)

exit

exit

 

Quit Terminal

 

 

 

If root is not yet enabled run terminal and do the following first: (requires the password to be entered 3 times)

 

passwd root

# enter your password when prompted

# enter it again (to enable root password)

# enter it again (to verify root password)

su; # test it

# enter password when prompted

exit

exit

 

Quit Terminal
