FS#222 - MacOS X Lion Installation problem

Installation problem.
After uneventful installation on MacOS X Lion 10.7.1 on a MacBook Pro Core I5 the QCAD will not launch by clicking into the app. When trying to launch the application by the command line I received an error message regarding the “plugin” folder, as follows:

al:MacOS everaldo$ ./QCAD
application directory: “/Applications/QCAD.app/Contents/MacOS”
working path: “/Applications/QCAD.app/Contents/Resources”
plugins folder does not exist

Renaming the folder from “/Applications/QCAD.app/Contents/PlugIns” to “Applications/QCAD.app/Contents/plugins” solved the problem.

Not reproducible here.

Can you please check whether your disk is formatted with the file system

"Mac OS X Extended (Journaled)"


"Mac OS X Extended (Case-Sensitive, Journaled)?

"Disk Utility" show that information (Format:).

Reproducible on a case-sensitive volume.


Available keyboard shortcuts
