Every day I'm shuffling
This thread is a list of common problems and solutions for Minion. Please do not post any questions here (Create a new thread for questions/support).
Troubleshooting Minion on MAC:
If your Minion is starting but shows an empty directory selection popup: Check if you use any drive with a special character like ' and remove it:
1. Open Finder
2. Navigate to Go --> Go to Folder
3. Enter /Volumes/
4. Here you will see all the volumes that you have on your Mac. If you have Time Machine, you may see folders with names such as "Joe's Backups".
5. Remove the apostrophe in the name (maybe also removes spaces)
Minion by JAVA
If you cannot get the Minion MAC dmg/Windows executable to work you could also install the Java JRE from Sun (Mac/windows/Linux: https://www.java.com/en/download/hel...ptions_de.html)
and download Mionion's Java file (https://www.minion.gg/?download -> Java) and extract it to your documents folder.
run this command
java -jar ~/Documents/Minion3.0.5-java/Minion-jfx.jar
(where ~/Documents/Minion3.0.5-java is the path where you have extracted the Minion Java files to. On Windows this would be e.g. c:\users\yourWindowsUserName\documents\...)
to execute the base Java jar file of Minion, instead of the executable wrapper around it.
When posting for support/help please include your minion.xml and minion.log. There should always be a minion.log file if the Minion program starts. If Minion doesn't start and there is no minion.log make sure to include that fact in your thread.
Press the windows key, enter %USERPROFILE% and press return key.
Inside the file explorer opened folder search for the directory ".minion".
Open it and in there should be the minion.xml file and minion.log.
Additional information on these files can be found here.
