Camera use shuts down CDPedia every time!

Postby arkayspark » Mon Jun 22, 2020 9:34 pm

Hi ,
I've been adding our cd collection to the CDPedia, but because a lot of our music is local (Australian) musicians etc I can't find matches. That's OK, I just add manually but I have to take an image of the cover.
EVERY TIME the programme stops responding and I have to Force Quit ...very annoying. Any suggestions?

CD Pedia 6.01
Mac Catalina 10.15.5

I can not answer why CDpedia is crashing but if there is a report here: ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/CDpedia.crash.log zip it up and send it to support@bruji.com. Also have a look for crash reports using the Console.app in Utilities.

Another way to get your cover art into your pedia is to scan it to desktop and drag and drop into your pedia.

Also please try the latest 6.0.3 version from here: https://bruji.com/beta/

Hi, I downloaded the beta version. Happily now CDpedia does not crash, but there is no functionality in the zoom or edges.
Thanks for the help in not crashing! Yay!

You could try the following:

1 - When I am updating App's to a new WHOLE number version or upgrading to a new OS version, or I know that there has been a major rewrite of the App such as with the case of all the pedia's and especially as Conor has rewritten them solely for 64bit technology, I do a complete uninstall of the old version prior to update. I achieve this by using a FREE program called AppCleaner which you can download from here. On using this App place a check mark IN ALL the boxes EXCEPT: ~/Library/Application Support/*****pedia , which is the second line down from the top. This is where your data base is located. Ensure that is NOT ticked. You will loose your Preference settings though but they only take a couple of minutes to redo. ONLY DOWNLOAD THE VERSION FOR YOUR macOS

2 - There is also one other thing you can do and that is to use, what I call a "Grease & Oil Change" maintenance program called Onyx. This is a FREE program that is a multifunction utility that you can use to verify the structure of the system files, to run miscellaneous maintenance and cleaning tasks, to configure parameters in the Finder, Dock, Safari, and some of Apple's applications, to delete caches, to remove certain problematic folders and files, to rebuild various databases and indexes, and more. I always use it prior and post system OS updates and about once a month. Also especially in this case concerning the new macOS 10.15.* Catalina which has dropped support for ALL 32 bit App's.

This program is available here: Titanium Software - Onyx. ONLY DOWNLOAD THE VERSION FOR YOUR macOS

It is available in many languages and is regularly updated (about once a month).

3 - Also there are some hidden menu tasks that you can perform: 'hold down the option key and click on the main Help menu in each program once and select - each in turn: 'Verify Database', 'Remove Orphaned Covers' and 'Clean Duplicates in Fields' these may not solve your problems but it wont hurt either.

4 - And finally if your particular pedia is actually crashing do check for the Crash Logs. You can find the relevant logs in your Home folder under: ~/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports/

Send them to Bruji Support: support@bruji.com

AND of course always carry out a general machine BACKUP first. Remember that all the pedia's also have the ability to create individual data base backups: File > Export Collection > Backup > Location of your choice

Hope you find these Tips & Hints helpful :D

The tips you included help me add a "clean" copy of the Beta. Thank you.
There is no longer a frame for the photo so you have to edit the photo, but it's a great improvement! Thank you
