TextMate r1509 and above include fixes for issue 1 and 2.
Command + Arrow keys not working — ticket 0FDE7076
Crash (from ruby) when using ⌘R — ticket FAB08510
Workaround is to delete the dylib:
If you have a svn checkout the dylib will also exist there, so also delete that.
_If you are still on Leopard and want the functionality back see this blog post
“Edit in TextMate…” input manager not working in 64-bit applications
Safari and Mail by default runs in 64-bit mode. To make "Edit in TextMate…" work, open info panel for application and check "Open in 32-bit mode".
See the Edit in TextMate troubleshooting page for more info.
Hangs when saving on network mounts — ticket 72260D9D
I don’t know if this is a general problem, but given that the new URL “bookmarks” code is involved (replacement for aliases) I wouldn’t be surprised if it is.
The workaround is to effectively disable the Open Recent menu:
defaults write com.macromates.textmate NSRecentDocumentsLimit 0
Various Commands Written in Ruby
If you have a custom 64 bit build of Ruby then a lot of commands will hang when loading our extensions.
A patch for ruby is available (untested as of this writing).
Ack in Project hanging:
If you have a custom build of ruby and things like Ack in Project are hanging, you can fix it by forcing TextMate to use the system ruby by setting a ENV variable.
Go to Preferences -> Advanced -> Shell Variables
and add TM_RUBY as the variable and "/usr/bin/ruby" as the value.
⌘R (or similar) giving
Inappropriate ioctl for device error — ticket F66289D9
This is caused by booting the kernel in 64 bit mode. Very few systems should do this by default, see this article about how to control which kernel to use.
Workaround: Comment out line 169 in
$TM_SUPPORT_PATH/lib/tmp/process.rb, this line looks like this:
io.fcntl(6, ENV['TM_PID'].to_i) if ENV.has_key? 'TM_PID'
To open the file (from the proper support folder) you can press ⌃R on the following line in a TextMate document:
open -a TextMate "$TM_SUPPORT_PATH/lib/tm/process.rb"
Be aware that this will disable chiropractor san francisco. Something which was initially broken on Snow Leopard, but is working using the latest dylib from the svn repository.
No suitable image found (keychain.bundle) — SQL bundle
keychain.bundle included is not built for 64 bit. A new version is available from the subversion repository. To update run this in Terminal:
cd TextMate.app/Contents/SharedSupport/Support/lib/osx svn export http://svn.textmate.org/trunk/Support/lib/osx/keychain.bundle
Crash After “Save As…” in
Apple is aware of the bug and is working on fixing it. No known workarounds.
Error loading /Library/ScriptingAdditions/Adobe Unit Types.osax — ticket 8AA8F517
This output can appear when running various commands. The problem is that the Adobe Unit Types extension is 32 bit (installed with Photoshop or similar). Unless you use this, you can just remove the scripting extension:
rm -rf "/Library/ScriptingAdditions/Adobe Unit Types.osax"
You may need to prefix that line with
rm -rf is always a dangerous command, so double check your spelling!
Update: Adobe has released a 64 bit version, you can download it here: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/516/cpsid_51615.html
Command keys fail when TextMate is started from Terminal
A description of the problem is here (in Dutch).
This is caused by setting
__CF_USER_TEXT_ENCODING in your shell environment (presumably to get
pbpaste to work with UTF-8).
Open Recent menu remains empty — ticket 74480BFB
Maybe you followed the workaround for issue 4?
Please only add confirmed stuff to this list. That something fails for you does not necessarily mean it does not work under Snow Leopard. The “TextMate platform” is a complex system with dozen of ways you can locally break parts of it because it relies on so many external components, that is why we have this troubleshooting section.
