    Hi, we are looking for a mac OSX tester/installer !!!!
    Anyway, you should try to double click on the downloaded ordrumbox jar file
    Another way is to launch a console:
    Open a terminal window. You can find this under Go -> Applications ->
    Utilities

    You should now have a terminal window on the screen. It will have a command
    prompt that looks something like:
    ~>
    Just type "java -jar ordrumbox-0.9.06.jar" in the terminal.
    You have to do that in the same directory you have downloaded the jar file.
    (use cd comand )

    Hello!

    I'm looking for a drum machine program to integrate into my music class
    curriculum. It should be simple enough for middle school students to use, and
    more importantly, run reasonably stable on all platforms. In order to work at
    home, students will need the software on their personal home computers. Many
    use Windows, some (smart ones) use Linux, and many have Macs. Also, the school
    uses Macs exclusively, so it is really important that the software work under
    OS X.

    I'm using OS X Lion right now, and I am unable to run the .jar, even using the
    terminal commands. I would be happy to act as a tester in order to get your
    software to the point that I can comfortably make it a required part of my
    course.

    Paul Winkler - 2013-05-12

    I'm having the same issues on OSX 10.8.3 as Engelbert.
    I do have recent Java:
    $ java -version
    java version "1.6.0_45"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_45-b06-451-11M4406)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.45-b01-451, mixed mode)

    I was able to get past the file not found errors by searching through the other help forum on http://www.ordrumbox.com/forum.php and figuring out that some of the missing files were in the source download. So I unzipped the source and did:

    cp resources/orSongPack/orDrumkits/default.ordk.zip ~/orDrumbox/cache/work.ordk.zip

    cp resources/orSongPack/orSongs/* ~/orDrumbox/cache/
    cd ~/orDrumbox/cache
    mv default.ordk.zip work.ordk.zip
    mv default.orsg.xml work.orsg.xml
    mv defaultBasis.orsg.xml workBasis.orsg.xml
    mv default_old.orsg.xml work_old.orsg.xml

    That seems to fix all the File Not Found exceptions, but then I get this:

    $ java -jar ordrumbox-V0.9.08.jar
    Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.NullPointerException

    at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEvents(EventDispatchThread.java:188)
    at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.run(EventDispatchThread.java:122)

    At this point I'm stuck and don't know how to proceed.
    I am quite comfortable at the command line, but for what it's worth I don't have a Java background.
