Hi, thanks for your help! I'll fix the safari problem with a script.
I found the TMP folder, on a mac an easy way to find it is to look for
$TMPDIR, which is a different folder than /tmp. There I found the
Denemo folder with a denemoprintA.png picture correctly created.
Yes, I noticed that there are no updated builds for MacOS. Do you know
how difficult is to build for MacOS? Otherwise I'll give a try running
the Windows version with Wine / Crossover.
