Default No filters or effects in palettes


I just installed Elements 2.0 on my G4 laptop but none of the filters or effects appear in the palettes. The various categories are there but there are no thumbnails. They're also in the plugins folder but don't seem to be loading? I've tried resetting the preferences but that hasn't seemed to work either. I don't have classic installed. Do I need it? Also I'm running Jaguar. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Beth,

Just ran Repair Permissions. Didn't seem to work either. The palettes still don't show up. Thanks.

Try reinstalling PE over your existing installation. That clears up a lot of problems, sometimes.

Barbara,

Actually tried that a couple of times. Even tried installing just filters and effects. Still doesn't work. Any other ideas? I guess I could do it again.

Okay, let's see. You've repaired permissions, run fsck--do you leave your computer on all the time? If not do you use macjanitor or macaroni? How much free space do you have on your drive?

Barbara,

What's fsck? Also I don't leave my computer on all the time. I don't use macjanitor or macaroni and I have about 17 gb free on my drive.

Ah, okay I would start with fsck. Restart your computer while holding down Command+S. It will restart to a screen of scary looking white on black type. Wait till it's through loading and then type "fsck -y" without the quotes. Note the space between the k and the dash.

Your computer will run through a check of the hard drive and either tell you that the drive "appears to be okay" or that "files were modified." If files were modified, repeat the whole process until you get the okay message. To get back to regular macland when you're done, type "reboot" without the quotes.

You need to go to versiontracker and download mac janitor. OS X, like all UNIX, does certain housekeeping tasks in the wee hours of the am, and if your computer is asleep or shut down, they can't run. Mac Janitor lets you run them whenever you want to so you don't have to leave your computer on and awake all the time. It's very easy to use.

EDIT It's also free.

Chris, Barbara forgot to mention to hit the 'return' key after you enter the command fsck -y or any command.

Yeah, it was scary to me the first time I looked at it. I've had weird stuff happen that has been corrected by this command.

Christopher the other thing I forgot to mention is that if you have any kind of antivirus software or anything from Norton, it needs to be turned off when you install PE.
