Bug Description

I've installed Gephi-0.7 on a Mac OS X v 10.5.8.
When I run the software I only obtain a short menu: GephiDesktop and no other functions.
I can correctly used this same software on my PC Windows.
I thank you by advance

Hello, do you have Java6 enabled on the computer? That could be the reason, see

  Hello, Yes, I've seen the notice about Java6 and it's the version
installed and enabled on my computer.

f you go to a terminal and do "java -version" is it Java6? Sometimes some environment variable could set Java5 instead of Java6 as default even if the settings are set on Java6.

I'm going on the terminal and I've obtained the following information:

Thanks, that helps a lot. I can see the initialization somehow goes wrong on your computer and comes to infinite loop.

I think I found the problem and just corrected it. The fix will be available in the 0.7beta version which is coming in a cuple of days. As I'm not sure if my fix corrects the problem, let me know when you test the 0.7beta if the bug remains.

Thanks, I wait the fix and I will test and report to you the result

I have read the different messages on this page but I'm not sure of the signification. Is the Gephi 0.7alpha4 the new version ? I've installed it again but I have the same problem on my Mac.
Thanks by advance

 I have read this page:

So as explained, I have deleted the directory: /Users/username/Library/Application/Support/gephidesktop

Then I have installed again Gephi and It's OK.

I thing the reason could be an older installation of Gegphi when my computer was in Java 5.0
