fresh os x 10.8 install here - set up everything all nice and neat, but is apparently failing. i can't quite find where it's failing:

pragone@zagyva:~  ○ bash -x .tmux/tmux-powerline/segments/               

So maybe it was the apple mail script?

pragone@zagyva:~  ○ bash -x .tmux/tmux-powerline/segments/mailcount_apple_mail.script 
+ tell application 'System Events'
.tmux/tmux-powerline/segments/mailcount_apple_mail.script: line 4: tell: command not found
.tmux/tmux-powerline/segments/mailcount_apple_mail.script: line 5: syntax error near unexpected token `('
.tmux/tmux-powerline/segments/mailcount_apple_mail.script: line 5: `    set process_list to (name of every process)'

Well that makes sense. That's applescript, if i understand correctly. So what if we just execute it straight up, since it's got a nice bang line on it?

pragone@zagyva:~  ○ .tmux/tmux-powerline/segments/mailcount_apple_mail.script 
dyld: DYLD_ environment variables being ignored because main executable (/usr/bin/osascript) is code signed with entitlements
pragone@zagyva:~  ○ 

Let me know what else you need to help debug this.


I don't have access to a 10.8 system atm but it seems to be a known problem described e.g. here

Does other osascripts work?


Let me take a look; in the meantime, I've discovered that now_playing fails as wells, seemingly for the same reason: it's not picking up a variable that gets set.

For, I have line 12 read:
But it's exiting on line 63:

  return 2

Same for now_playing, with the TMUX_POWERLINE_SEG_NOW_PLAYING_MUSIC_PLAYER variable.


Your not supposed to edit line 12 to set the variable. Changing line12 changes what will be outputted with Run that script and make changes in ~/.tmux-powerlinerc.


Ahh. It all makes more sense now. I was working with having played with the version of tmux-powerline from a few months ago. Thanks
