Hi, does not work on os 10.4..dunno if is ok for lions..
open install_settings using terminal, be sure you have x11 running.
try to open it with x11..
you should have a password and insert it..

if you have problems you could try to compile it for your mac..xcode and macports should be installed.
Try like that..find a folder 'opt' and copy it to your HD..now copy hidden folder .mandelbulber inside your user folder.
To show hidden files
from terminal:

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
killall Finder

after you finished go back like that (hide hidden files)

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
killall Finder

if you want, see the readme file and send a mail with a screengrab and some infoZ

Sorry but I'm really a noob when it comes to this kind of terminology smiley
I'll send a mail to the developers and see what they say.

On Snow Leopard, the only thing you have to do is to double click on install_settings. Then you will ask for you password (to get the install rights).

After this "setup" you can start the program mandelbulber (X11 starts automatically).

in the unzipped folder (once the installation is finished) you find the application (mandelbulber)..you can move it where you want..just double click on it.  smiley

Installation went fine, the program runs great but i downloaded the gradient and formula zip from the topic on top of the forum list and i don't find the folders where i should put them sad.

When i open mandelbulber and want to load settings a folder .mandelbulber is displayed but when i search it in finder it's not even on my mac, does it have to do with the following?

rom terminal install gtk2 using port, first run a selfupdate.

sudo port selfupdate
sudo port install gtk2

you can find separetly user guide here http://sourceforge.net/projects/mandelbulber/files/Mandelbulber%20user%20guide.pdf/download
download the code from http://sourceforge.net/projects/mandelbulber/files/mandelbulber1.00.tar.gz/download

now you have to open a file and change something in makefile.

makefiles
\makefile
open this file and change this part:

-o"mandelbulber"
-o 'mandelbulber'

continue from terminal to compile the project

cd makefiles

make all

this will compile mandelbulber program linking the libraries created using macports
you nedd to copy .settings folder in your user-folder
from terminal navigate inside mandelbulber1.00 folder and run from terminal

mkdir $HOME/.mandelbulber/
cd `dirname $0` && pwd

ditto .mandelbulber/ $HOME/.mandelbulber/

type the name of your application inside terminal and press enter

mandelbulber

greetings!

nee  smiley
you don't find the folders because they are inside an hidden folder..

see > http://www.macworld.com/article/51830/2006/07/showallfinder.html
or
http://www.brooksandrus.com/blog/2007/03/23/mac-os-x-show-hide-hidden-files-in-finder/

you will be able to see your mandelbulber folder (.mandelbulber) with all your folders and files.

Open terminal and type
Code:
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
press <enter>
now write
Code:
Killall Finder
press <enter>

OK! now your Finder can see your hidden files (search for the folder '/betlegeuse/.mandelbulber')..

O ye! Much appreciated!

Since I'm new to fractals and my field of interest is architecture i was wondering if some formula's/fractal types are more suitable than others to create effects as if the fractal is a city or a building (so no 'pointy' fractals that look like and explosion)

Can i find somewhere what scale cscale rotation, ... causes as effect?

greetings!
