Свежий Kindle Previewer не запускается в новой OS X. Лечение — только установкой x11 и старой Java 1.6, а также прописывание новых путей руками в загрузочном файле. Зато можно почувствовать себя программистом!

With the latest update of Mac 10.11, Kindle Previewer 2.94 is having some problems. We recommend our users to follow the steps in the order that we are giving below:

  1. Install x11 from https://xquartz.macosforge.org/trac
  2. Install java 1.6 from https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572?locale=en_US
  3. Locate launcher file': [ Open Finder -> Go -> SelectAll My files’ -> Go to Applications' -> ClickKindle previewer’ -> Select Show package contents' -> Contents -> MacOS -> Contents -> OpenLauncher’ file ]
  4. Open the launcher file with `text edit’
  5. Edit 1: Below the first line [ #!/bin/sh ], add a new line as [ export JAVA_HOME=[paste the path where java v1.6 is installed ]; so if your java v1.6 path is [ /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents/Home ], the NEW LINE will appear as [ export JAVA_HOME=/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents/Home ]
  6. Edit 2: At the bottom of the file, you will find the term “java” twice. Replace “java” with “${JAVA_HOME}/bin/java” at both the places.
  7. Save the file and close.
