Nice to see this project being actively maintained again. Excellent for a single-station POS, documentation still needs work for explaining how to connect several POS stations to a central database, and how to set up an inventory-control terminal.

Installer does not run on latest version of OS X (10.3.8) Fails to detect Java Runtime Environment. Verified that current, working JRE is v 1.7, but installer does not detect properly. Cannot install software on latest OS X.

    Well, The problem here is that uniCenta touts itself as being highly customizable. Well, In order to customize uniCenta, you have to alter the source code to change 90% of aspects. The manual even details making changes to the source. And the problem therein is that the staff involved refuse to make public the source code, even though the binary is available, which I'm pretty sure is (wildly) against the rules. Emails requesting the source are sent back with a "Oh, it'll be available soon", even though it is supposed to be available on day 1.

    It is not Open Source the source code is nowhere in nothing place. Where is the source code from 2010 to today??? The web site say: "Direct download of uniCenta oPOS source code is temporarily suspended whilst we finish our new site." When? How many time that message was there? And the other option is "Register to download uniCenta oPOS source code" When I click to register, the site says "User registration is currently not allowed." So, where are the source code? lol

    update, next problem. After having solved the Java problem, I am unable to install the localization files (de in my case). Whenever I extract the language pack or copy/paste the files, it installs them on OSX 10.9.1 as "unix executable files" instead of as "documents". Update: managed to install as documents now, but Unicenta still does not change the language. It is impossible to change the language as Unicenta cannot read the files. I go back to my 1Star verdict. Update: Java 1.7 JRE definitely does not work in OSX 10.9.1. However, I found out that installing the developer versions Java 1.7 JDK does the trick. It is visible to Unicenta and allows installation on new MacBooks. So I upgraded to 3 stars and if all else works also I may add a few additional stars. However, this problem should really be mentioned in the release notes as most MacUsers will give up before finding this solution Unicenta 3.56 installer does not work on the latest Mac OSX 10.9.1 with the follwing error message: "There may be an issue with your Java installation. Please correct it and return to uniCenta oPOS install when done.0" Java 1.7 JRE is however installed correctly on my machine.
