    I'm installing mew new MBP and installed Growl. In the growl preferences, I see that only Firefox is listed even though I have Adium and lot of other Apps that support growl installed. How can I add them ?

    I have noticed that Growl does not pick up on software that is installed that is Growl enabled. I am not sure if that is Growl, or the app that is the issue.

    I did this:

    1. start up the app you want Growl to see, then use it for something that Growl would see. In FF a download should suffice.

    2. kill the app

    3. reboot.

    It seems that Growl only sees the app when it's used and then must be reconfigured (by a restart). Now that I think about it, you might be able to restart the Finder and get the same result, maybe. I have not tried that.
