I reviewed the screen capture. The GnuBG default window size is too big and it is covering the windows dock at the bottom. One way to resize it is to run gnubg as you are. When the main window is up click on the X11 Task bar  menu item (At the top of the screen) called “window”, then in the drop down menu click on “Zoom”. The program should be displayed full screen. Now in the bottom right of the screen (to the rick of the Apple Dock) you should see the resize icon (on he gnubg window). Click on the icon and hold the mouse button down while dragging the window to resize it.

I’m unsure if your version of GnuBG will save the default window size when it exits.

Michael, I did what was instructed below.

New packages for MacOS 10.5 (Leopard)
There are new packages available for MacOS 10.5:

http://http://www.gnubg.org/media/macos/gnubg.pkg <http://www.gnubg.org/media/macos/gnubg.pkg>
http://http://www.gnubg.org/media/macos/gnubg_all.pkg <http://www.gnubg.org/media/macos/gnubg_all.pkg>

 The first package contains only gnubg files (all located in /opt/local/) and expects the necessary libraries being installed in /opt/local/lib. The second package also contains all libraries besides python and X11.

 Gnubg is no native MacOS application so you have to open a terminal an type "/opt/local/bin/gnubg" for starting it. The first start will last a few seconds because the X-server also has to be started (happens automatically).

 Icons for a more convenient start will follow.

Have fun!


Thank you for your quick response.

What do I do?

What is the URL/File you downloaded to install GnuBG?
What commands do you run from the terminal to launch gnubg?

I have never seen what you described. Can you screen shot your desktop with Command-Shift-3 (You’ll hear it click like a camera shutter) demonstrating this problem?. A picture file will be saved to your desktop called “Picture X” (where X=number). Email me a copy of the screenshot directly (Don’t post it to the mailing list)

Hi, downloaded GNU onto a new MacBook Pro w/ 10.5.6 and got program up using a terminal but can't play it because bottom 20% of screen is obscured by Mac desktop icons & no matter what I try (full screen, resizing window, etc.) I can't get the GNU window above the icons.  Can't see player icons, pip count and, I assume, how to roll dice & play.

Basically, no way to use game.

Some advice on how to modify screen (either Mac or GNU tips) would be much appreciated !
