    I've installed Growl but it doesn't seem to work. Everything installed fine but it doesn't seem to detect any programs. I usually use it with iTunes, iChat, and Cyberduck.

    Anyone having success with Growl?

    Edit: I restarted the computer and now it seems to work fine. ;) Funny how if I was on Windows, restarting is usually the first thing I do. I never find the need to restart with OS X so this was a first time (minus updates).

    It seems to be working for me with Mail and growlnotify via the command line (version: 1.1.1).

    I think if you hear a growl, you've picked up the wrong type of Leopard! :p

    Sorry, I had to. :eek:

    Growl's a notification system for OS X. Basically gives you little notifications for stuff that's going on, and works with a lot of third party applications as well .

    Other posts elsewhere seem to have conflicted with your comment - but I'm too scared to try. Last time I installed the Growl Mail extension Mail.app wouldn't restart until I removed it. :rolleyes:
