How do you show package contents in Lion.
In Finder, right click on an app > Show Package Contents
Doesn't seem to work
What package (app, library or otherwise) are you trying to show?
Just to makes sure you know where it is:
It works here.
Is this a particular application? Or all applications?
Can you try it in a different profile.
Eg I just downloaded the JDK from the Apple DC site.
Different user same thing and on my laptop and desktop?
Ah ha. I get show package contents with Address Book so it must be package specific. Maybe when packages are created there is some kind of option?
You need an app like Pacifist to show the contents of a .pkg file.
Thanks. It says though not yet available for Lion
That is a OS X 10.5 package. Only 10.4 packages allow you to view the contents in Finder. You can use Pacifist (as mentioned) or you can open the package in Installer and go to File>Show Files
Edit: Or if you want to convert the package to 10.4, open it in PackageMaker (part of Apple SDK), click the package icon, change "Minimum Target" to "Mac OS X v10.4 Tiger," and build.
Thanks Alex and everyone for your help.
