Gearbox issue on OS/X 10.8.2 (No. Not the driver related problem...)

I have an irritating problem with Gearbox 2.57 on OS/X 10.8.2.

Everything works fine sound-wise, but whenever I use the "Tones" menu in the main window (Not the file menu from the top bar), I can happily navigate to the preset tone folders, but when I attempt to open the User folder Gearbox freezes and has to be forced to quit.

I have also noticed that Gearbox always behaves as though it's the first time it's ever been run whenever I start it up: "American Punk" guitar tone, hints & tips, etc. Yes. I have set the option for it to always to start with the previous tone used, and yes, this occurs after I have closed down Gearbox tidily using quit (rather than after it's fozen and had to be forced to quit.

I've been using Gearbox for years on Windows XP with my Toneport UX-1 but recently shifted to Mac. Should I be using Pod Farm 1 instead of Gearbox? I'm loathe to learn a new UI.

Cheers - Steve

You could try this regarding permissions, it has to do with a different issue, but worth a try.

OSX Authorization issues:

try using the following instructions:


close out of all Line 6 software first. Then, open a Finder window and select your [User Account] on the left (with the "home" icon) and look for the Library/Application Support and see if there's a Line 6 folder in there.

Highlight the Line 6 folder and do a "Control + Click" on it; then choose "Get Info" in the submenu that pops open. Go to the bottom of the window and check the "Sharing & Permissions" box. If the Priviledge is set to "Read Only" on your Mac, this is the culprit. Change it to "Read & Write".

Then, re-launch License Manager and de-authorize your Mac. Re-Authorize it again.

Also, you might want to try POD Farm 1.12, it is a free upgrade from Gearbox.
