I downloaded xquartz (2.7.5) but Meteorologist still will not run on my MacBookPro Retina 10.9.1. When I saw that you used 2.7.4, I downloaded and installed it, but still no Meteorologist.
It was running Meteorologist yesterday fine. Don't know what happened?
Not sure why, but if you're running OS X 10.9, installing a copy of xquartz from over at macosforge dot org (typed weird to get around the "no links in reviews" restriction) followed by a reboot makes Meteorologist work again.
FYI, it also makes X11 stuff start working again, as well as some Wine stuff.
The actual link is xquartz dot macosforge dot org
Current version as of October 31, 2013 is 2.7.4, released 9-27-12 - that's the one I installed. It's working great, now. I was directed there BY APPLE. Check their kb article ht5293 (you can go to the Support section of Apple's site and search for ht5293 - it'll pull up "About X11 and OS X Mountain Lion" if you'd like to read about why this works. Apparently X11 libraries were taken out of OS X 10.8+, and xquartz puts them back in. It's very likely Meteorologist was using some of these libraries.
updated MacOS to 10.9 (Mavericks) and saw that Meteorologist does not work anymore....
Any chance to get an update?
answer to abomination66 above that post:
quartz does not help.
But deleting the 3 plist files in the preferences in the home directory helps.
After that you have to restart the app 2 times and it works again.
Not Apple-like, looks like cleaning the registry in windows...
Love this app. I have seemingly tried them all and I keep coming back to Meteorologist. Best menu weather app for Mac OS X. It's stable and provides all the essential weather data.
Nice work ! Great project.
