    Well, I know nothing, and I mean no-thing about Java, and very little about the terminal, but in trying to run the script with "sh" (sh pictods.sh) I get this:

    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: Bad version number in .class file

    I have no idea if I'm supposed to install a lib file or what, and wouldn't know how to do it anyways. In searching around the net, it seems nobody knows how to run this thing on a mac.

    Any java heads out there? This has gotten me curious, and I wouldn't mind learning a thing or two if it's not too painfull.

    PictoDS seems to fail miserably whenever I run it. You can install the developer preview of the newest java runtime (free download, but free registration required, from connect.apple.com), and you manually run it using that version (go into Terminal.app use cd to get into the PictoDS_mac_2.1.0/lib folder, and then run
    Code:
    /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6.0/Commands/java 
    -Djava.library.path="." -cp .:swt.jar:org.pictods.jar org.pictods.ui.PictodsUI
    If you do that, the app opens, but it freezes whenever you try to do anything.

    This is sad.
    I've been waiting a loong time for this and it don't work.
    I contacted nicom00k and he was really good with replies but nothing he suggested could get it to work. Hopefully someone will rewrite this into a true mac drag and drop app.
    Nobody on 4 other forums has been able to get this to work either.
    The main site is down by the way.
