No config created - new Mac OSX install
« on: October 28, 2019, 08:21:16 PM »
Just tried to install Attractmode for the first time on OSX 10.11 El Capitan. After moving it to the applications folder and running it, it just quits and closes. I ran it from the terminal and it says:

Config file not found: /Users/mrl72/.attract/attract.cfg
 - Constructed 1 filters in 0 ms (1 comparisons)
Fontconfig error: Cannot load default config file
Illegal instruction: 4

I checked my $HOME folder in Finder with hidden files visible and there is no .attract folder.

Any help appreciated!

I'm not working with OSX but I think it's similar to linux:

what happens, if you create the missing folder, set write permissions to folder and start AM?
