Get svn version as the last version (1.0.0-beta5) won’t build in Mac OS 10.8:
svn co https://horde3d.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/horde3d/trunk horde3d
Build with cmake:
mkdir build; cd build
# no make install, so just copy frameworks to the appropriate places
sudo cp -R Horde3D/Source/Horde3DEngine/Horde3D.framework /Library/Frameworks/
sudo cp -R Horde3D/Source/Horde3DUtils/Horde3DUtils.framework /Library/Frameworks/
Set new-horde to #t in libs/external/horde3d.xtm.
In the horde3d_knight.xtm example, the horde resources_path should point to
Due to the new window resizing feauture of Lion, there is as strong possibility that one can’t get the folder pane back in Thunderbird if it snaps shut (because you will resize the window, not reopen the pane at the left border). One can re-enable it by editing the file in session.json in the profile directory (~/Library/Thunderbird/Profiles/*.default/session.json) and replacing “folderPaneVisible”:false with “folderPaneVisible”:true. This should probably be done with Thunderbird closed. Upon reopen, the folder pane should be back.
Hopefully this will be fixed in the next Thunderbird version…
As I was quite annoyed with Preview’s slow reload time, I found SyncTeX.
With it, one can sync CarbonEmacs and many other editors with the PDF-viewer Skimflagyl tablets online. Skim thus allows you to shift-command-click in the PDF and it will take you to that exact line in the .tex-file in your editor of choice. Nice! Just don’t forget to start the emacs server (M-x server-start) and ensure that the right emacsclient binary is in the $PATH or the Skim settings… and then: happy TeXing 🙂
Today I wanted to write a Processing sketch to process the input of my webcam (model number V-UBV49). As it should run on a Mac and I didn’t have one at hand, I tried my luck with Windows, because at least it uses the same video-library.
To use it, one needs QuickTime for Windows and WinVDI, a quite dead project and closed-source on top of it. The latest version (1.05) is considered broken (so the wiki tells me), and the one before didn’t work either (1.04). A mailing list message mentioned 1.01, which then finally worked. I got it from this site because no official one was to be found.
The mac driver for the webcam is known as macam btw.
