    In that case, I'm glad that I held off on updating to High Sierra!

    Edited to add: Have you tried grabbing the source and launching main.tcl directly? Potato is just TCL/TK (a scripted programming language like Python or LUA) so the problem is almost certainly specific to the executable version they're distributing for MacOS.

    That's the suggested workaround.
    It doesn't work.

    It should, unless they stopped shipping TCL with MacOS. Did you try starting it as 'wish main.tcl'?

    I don't recall what exactly went awry, but I tried the steps in the github link I posted earlier this thread and couldn't get it working.

    But the one person who has ever gotten it to work (by my knowledge) said it crashes frequently. I think having Potato back would be undercut sorely by dealing with it crashing often.

    I'm happily giving Atlantis a go.

    @Sparks If there's a way to individually set the background color and text color for the input window, let me know; otherwise, that might not be a bad feature for 2.0. :D Otherwise, I've done some fiddling and it at least looks a bit more familiar.

    Sadly, no, but I've made a note for 2.0.

    If enough people want the feature, it wouldn't be hard to make a quick mod to the 1.x source tree to allow this, though. Maybe throw in a second input window.

    I did a bit of testing and the only way I found to get Potato working on Sierra (10.12.6), is to install Mac Ports and XQuartz, and invoke Potato with the version of wish that comes with the ports screenshot e.g. /opt/local/bin/wish ~/potato.vfs/main.tcl. This works fine but incurs some additional overhead by needing to run under XQuartz.



  • Thanks for all the help everyone!

    I'm now happily using Atlantis. I even like the sidebar with the activity stuff now.

    Haha.
