Can someone explain Growl?  Should Logos users like myself get it?

Its the sound a leopard makes when it consumes the works of Luther and Calvin.

Ha! I read the subject line and thought it was the sound of a Logos Mac user complaining about the new alpha version. Wink

It's lets apps notify you when things happen - eg indexing your library, new tweets have arrived (Ecofon). http://growl.info/ It's a great utility to have

See examples here http://community.logos.com/forums/t/11336.aspx?PageIndex=2

you know how sometimes programs inform you of something? Download is finished, search is running, DVD is done being ripped, etc. Typically, if you're not looking at the program when it displays the message, you don't see it.

Growl is a system-wide messenger, highly customizable, that displays these messages from every program, so that you always see them regardless of whether it's minimized or whatnot. It's little, and it's free.

Growl is one of those Mac-type things, that "just work", you can use it as is, or customize it to tell you you when your shirts are dry in the dryer. I would recommend that every Mac user add it to their system. Windows users? There is a growl for windows, but frankly you guys just aren't worthing of it. Stick out tongue

I thought the Windows version was called Tumble, so I could use it in my washing machine and/or dryer... Smile

Speaking of which, have you ever seen DryerFox (it's Firefix -- fully functional -- running inside a dryer, tumbling around -- very funny -- written by the husband of a friend of mine): http://olddougnewtricks.blogspot.com/2007/04/dryerfox-its-like-firefox-but-inside.html; requires downloading/installing Apollo runtime to get it to work, but it's worth the laugh.

I found I already had Growl on my iMac and I added Logos 4 Mac to the applications it works with yesterday. Today, for reasons best known to itself. Logos embarked on a 500 Mb+ download followed by a 5 hour index (which only lasted about an hour before it presumably completed). I right-clicked on (or did I hover over?) the little Logos icon in the Menu bar and saw it was updating resources. I'm not sure which ones, as I haven't downloaded anything since 13a, which downloaded and re-indexed itself on Tuesday. I hoped for more information via Growl but … nothing!

How do you get Growl to work? I tried hovering over the Growl icon … nothing. I tried right-clicking … little preferences menu opened. There must be something obvious that I'm not doing properly.

Please help.

Growl notifications haven't been added for downloads yet.  Growl should have notified you via pop up when the program began indexing if growl is working correctly.  Did it do this?

Now you mention it, something did appear mostly hidden by the right-click drop down– sort of ghostly – but it vanished before I could get rid of the right-click drop-down to read it. Was that it?

Huh?

This thread might be helpful.  http://community.logos.com/forums/t/11573.aspx I'm going to ask Melissa to post resource updates in both Logos 4 and Logos 4 Mac so that the Mac users won't be in the dark.

That sounds about right.  Congrats, Growl notifications are working for you!

I found that Growl will only include Logos after you do a "Rebuild Index" and after the Index is complete - you must quit Logos and Restart it. Then you will find Growl has discovered Logos and it will appear in the Application List.

At least that was my experience today when I did the Growl install.
