Gephi won't close on OS X #728
Any time I quit Gephi (whether explicitly or as part of an automatic restart after a plugin update), all of the windows close, but the program never terminates. Eventually it shows up as "not responding" in the Activity Monitor. It doesn't appear to be using any CPU cycles or reading from or writing to the disk. This behavior just started after updating to 0.8.2.
OS: OS X 10.8.2
Confirm the behaviour after installing version 0.8.2. Os version is the same but Java is 1.7.0_13 (64 bit).
In addition to the inability to quit Gephi (have to force quit every time), Gephi becomes unresponsive when selecting any elements of the GUI (Overview, Data Laboratory or Preview) - the menus are inaccessible and Force quit lists its process as unresponsive.
This is a show stopper for using Gephi on OS X and would be very grateful for some guidance on what to correct this error (is a Java preference that needs to be changed?)
I also confirm the behaviour of Gephi 0.8.2.
I also would like to add that gephi 0.8.1 works perfectly on the same environment.
OS: OS X 10.7.5
@mmohsen thanks for pointing out a fix; worked for me.
Here are details for a quick workaround for the OSX issue:
p.s. you might have different versions of jdk installed; but it should be something like 1.6.*
p.p.s. @alves thanks for pointing out line omission

Gephi does not work in Mac OS sine Java 7 and Windows since Java 8.
