Mandelbulber version 2.11-1 on macOS Sierra 10.12.6

Just get Error: Can’t open file /Users/ … /share/mandelbulber2/qt_data/fractal_mandelbulb.ui Fractal ui file can’t be loaded

Then the following message window shows up: In Mandelbulber 2.10 the default data structure changed for linux and MacOS etc … Do you want to upgrade now to this new structure ? Program will restart after upgrade

Clicked ok, program restarts but same error behaviour

I manually copied the requested data to the location as mentioned in the error window
But is doesn’t seem to help, same error returns

Any advice ?

Hallo Rob, try again to install the sw using the .dmg file and after it fails execute the little script I have posted here.
You can always change the version of mandelbulber (eg "mandelbulber2-11-1") directly in the appleScript editor.
