Guru & ProTools Problems

Postby mark!productions » Tue Dec 02, 2008 11:12 pm

Hi everyone, i am a new user of Guru. Looks really nice. I am having some problems with running guru though on my mac. To give a little info bout myself here, i am running a Dual 1.8 GHz Power PC G5 with OSX 10.4.11. I use Pro Tools HD 7.1 cs9 and updated my Guru verse to 5.12. We also use DP 5.13 but we use it in DAE mode. That is why i have not updated PrTools to any of the newer versions becasuse they are uncapatible with DP.
Anyways, when i load up Guru in PT and try to choose a kit, nothing loads up, the plugin just kinda flashes there on the screen. Then i try to load a sample up and i am asked to go locate the sample. When i go to locate the sample in the correct folder, i see the sample, but when i click on it, it will not open it up. I checked to see if GURU was pointed to the right drive location for the GURU Data, and it appears to be ok.
So then i decided to try some of the example bundles, but they wouldn't load either. The file format for the example bundles appears to be in a unix format, which doesn't work with a powerpc Mac. Its weird, they have the correct extension on them. I looked at the installer, and the example bundle data on the GURU installer looks like it is all Unix data.
Lastly, i wanted to uninstall GURU, and reinstall it again, maybe something screwed up, and i can not find the uninstaller at all on the GURU DVD. PLEASE CAN SOMEBODY HELP. MANY THANKS!!

You're probably better doing a manual delete of all Guru related files:

- delete application from your Applications folder
- delete Guru's RTAS plugin file from /Library/Application Support/Digidesign/Plug-Ins
- delete Guru plist files from /Users/[username]/Library/Preferences

Don't install the version on the original DVDs again, just go straight for the 1.5.12 update.

Try to change read permissions for content of GURUdata folder using Terminal and shell command "chmod -R a+r *".

Return to “GURU”
