[Mac] How To: Resolve Most Problems With TRiBot [Pics]

Recommended Posts

TRiBot not showing up after logging in?

Receiving a "Java null" error?

Scripts not loading?

Any other issue using TRiBot on your mac?

 

Fix #1

First thing you need to do is verify the latest version of Java is running on your Mac (available for download here).
To see what version you're currently running,

  • Click on the  at the top left of your screen
  • Click "System Preferences..."
  • Click on the "Java" option at the bottom and the Java Control Panel should open in a separate window
  • In the General tab, click on the "About..." option.
  • Verify this is the most recent version available from the download link up top.

Fix #2

Next, you need to verify you have the correct .jdk, or Java Development Kit. Before starting your TRiBot client, you tell it which jdk to reference, as seen here

Many, if not most, issues with the client on Macs are due to the jdk being outdated. To download the latest, go here, accept the License Agreement, and download the OS X version.
 
The file downloaded will be a .dmg file. Open it up and you'll be able to install it (only with Administrator privileges, of course).
 
To see what versions you have installed on your Mac,

  • Click on the Spotlight search option in the top-right (or just type cmd+spacebar) and search for "Finder."
  • Once in the Finder window, click on the "Go" option in the very top bar.
  • Click "Go To Folder..." and type this in, then click Go: /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines
  • You should see the available options to choose when starting your TRiBot client.
  • Verify the latest jdk is present, should see something like this:

    Us56sbu.png

Most common issues with loading the client should be resolved if you've verified both are up to date. 
 
If you're curious, here's a post I found that helps explain the difference between the two and why these steps are necessary:


"The JRE" is, as the name implies, an environment. It's basically a bunch of directories with Java-related files, to wit:

  • /bin with executable programs like java and (for Windows) javaw, which are essentially the program that is the Java virtual machine;
  • /lib with a large number of supporting files: Some jars, configuration files, property files, fonts, sounds, icons... all the "trimmings" of Java. Most important are rt.jar and a possibly a few of its siblings, which contain the "java API," i.e. the Java library code.
  • Somewhere, possibly squirreled away by the installer to some directory specified by the operating system, are some .DLLs (for Windows) or .so's (Unix/Linux) with supporting, often system-specific native binary code.

The JDK is also a set of directories. It looks a lot like the JRE but it contains a directory (called JRE) with a complete JRE, and it has a number of development tools, most importantly the Java compiler javac in its bin directory.


 
Fix #3 
If none of the above work, another thing you can try that has been found to solve some issues is deleting your tribot folder, tribot loader, restarting, and redownloading:

If you've used TRiBot on your mac, your tribot folder will be here:
 
1. Click on Finder

2. In the menu bar, click "Go," then choose the "Go To Folder..." option

3. Paste this into the box changing "YOUR MAC USERNAME" to whatever is in your upper right corner. USE LOWERCASE LETTERS.

  • /Users/"YOUR MAC USERNAME"/Library/Application Support/

1FBkWpo.png


 
4. Delete the tribot folder, then delete your TRiBot_Loader.jar file used to start TRiBot.

5. Restart your mac and redownload the file from TRiBot.org.

  • THERE ARE 2 DIFFERENT "APPLICATION SUPPORT" FOLDERS.
  • IF YOU SEE FOLDERS LIKE "ApplePushService," "CrashReporter," "com.apple.TCC," YOU'RE IN THE WRONG APPLICATION SUPPORT FOLDER.

If you are still having any issues, PM me, post here, or add me on Skype and I and/or someone else will do our best to help get your client started.
 

Note: If you ask for help, I will require you to post a screenshot of your java and jdk version, proving you've already tried what's been recommended so far.

Thank you for that! I always forget the titles get cut off. It's unfortunate "mac" isn't even searchable by users  :( d1c9c28900f2afda08fa3e3effcfbfd7.png

Yea always hated that forum software search has a 4 character limit, gets in the way all the time.

Googling "site:https://tribot.org/forums/ mac" is nice workaround.

Replace mac with #yourfavoritewordunder4characters

Heya! First of all... thanks for all the work u put into this! I am sure it has helped tons of people! :D  But sadly it did not work for me. :(  I would love if U could help me out on trying to get the bot to work. I am using a Macbook Pro and I can get the bot to "Load" But the actual Bot GUI Or whatever u call it never comes up. Only this little Java Icon is on the launch bar. nyGAjTH.png

I attached 2 pictures to show that I did all of ur steps. Thx in advance!

Same thing is happening to me as @Lordpriford. I have updated everything and when I log in, the first screen pops up and does it things, ending with green font saying" tribot loaded successfully"  that box goes away as a java icon appears(says Tribot) nothing happens after this. I have to close application and retry.

Did you follow the entire guide, word for word?

@Lordpriford

So you can login, another box shows up and says it's successfully loaded or whatnot, but the actual client never shows up? Or the scripts don't show up once the client loads?

Yes... The actual client never shows up. 

 

 

Edit: Okay... so now I have launched Tribot with the console and it turns out the file

"/Users/MicahMarchand/Library/APPLICATION SUPPORT/tribot/dependancies/libTOGL.so"

is missing. And I think this might be the problem.

 

It gives me the Error:

"Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-1" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: Can't load library: /Users/MicahMarchand/Library/APPLICATION SUPPORT/tribot/dependancies/libTOGL.so"

 

Edit2: Okay! So now I tried to run OS Runescape... and It works. But I don't use OS Runescape. So that does not help any really. RS3, the version I want to use, is the one I have tried to get working.

@EsGucci

RS3 is known to have issues with TRiBot on most platforms, but OSRS is 100% supported.

 

Have also done all of the above, updated everything and all but once I login everything seems find and a green "Tribot will now load" appears and then attempts to launch the client but nothing happens and the loading screen just disappears, for OSRS too. Help please.

Added [Mac] to front of title so more people could see before clicking ;).

 

Great work on the tutorial, I know lots of users have issues on mac and having the fixes documented well like this will really help out.

@YoHoJo Think we could replace the currently pinned Mac tutorial with mine? Should make it a little more visible so I don't have to keep copy/pasting the link in threads  :angel:

      Hello, Willing to pay someone $20 to help me get this set up by using skype chat. I currently have a Macbook Pro and have tried everything possible on all forums. Uninstalled java, removed firewall, anti virus, reinstalled java and reinstalled osrs while deleting all cache on both accounts. done this multiple times and still no luck.

      Fluffee's Server Setup 2.0 [BETA]
      As some of you may know, I released an automated server setup script a little over a year ago. Albeit that script worked well, I was never fully satisfied with it, as I found it to be kind of messy to use. As a result, I rewrote the script, and restructured it, to add more, and stronger support for the different versions of Debian, the different versions of CentOS and the different versions of Ubuntu. However, with so many different Operating Systems being supported, and many different server providers having different setups, it's hard for me to test every possible scenario on my own. Which is why I've been privately handing this script out, and am now publicly looking for help.

      What does the script do?
      Similar to my previous setup script, this script changes the SSH port and creates a new user for connecting and using the server and disables root SSH connections; it installs the latest version of TightVNC Server (1.3.10) and sets that up with the desired port and password. It installs JDK 102 (32 or 64 bit depending on the OS), and installs TRiBot and OSBuddy and sets up the appropriate .jar file associations.
      What operating systems does it support?
      - CentOS (6.x and 7.x) (32 and 64 bit)
      - Debian (7.x and 8.x) (32 and 64 bit)
      - Ubuntu (12.x, 14.x and 16.x) (32 and 64 bit)
      Does it work?
      As far as I know, yes it does in fact work, and it works well if I might add. However, given that I can't test every possible setup, there is the potential for differences and issues, which is why I need help.
      I want to beta test, how can I help?
      The next time you setup a server, or if you just want to reinstall your old one, use this new script and let me know if you encounter any issues or things that you think are missing. Ideally, after you answer the questions the script prompts you for, you shouldn't have to touch the keyboard again. Therefore, if during installation the script prompts you for any kind of input that isn't the first few questions, please let me know as this is probably not supposed to happen. Also, if things don't work, like TRiBot doesn't open, there's no internet browser, LG won't hook, etc. make me aware of those issues as well, so I can try and fix them!
      I've found a bug, what do you need from me?
      A few things, I'll need the operating system and bit type and a description of the bug. I may ask you for SSH access to the server, as well as ask you to reinstall the server a few times, while I attempt to troubleshoot the issue. The issues may only arise on your server, so I might not be able to recreate the issue on my end, as my hosting provider may have a different server setup than your's. I've added in a bug report format below which would be the best way to report a bug, but simply shooting me a PM or messaging me on Skype also work, assuming you're willing to allow me to troubleshoot.
       
       
      How do I run the script?
      Login as root to a fresh VPS/dedi running one of the supported operating systems. From there run the commands listed below and follow the onscreen instructions. For those who would like to see the script's code, it can be found on my github here. The commands to run are as follows:
      wget --no-check-cert https://bitbucket.org/Fluffee/fluffees-server-setup/raw/master/fluffees-server-setup.sh && chmod +x fluffees-server-setup.sh && ./fluffees-server-setup.sh -v Version History

      Hey guys first time posting on TriBot but I am really struggling to get it to run on my Mac. It wants to run but it always encounters the same error which is it says Exception in thread "AWT-EventQue-1"java.lang.unsatisfiedlinkerror:Cant load library: / Usersxxxxxxx/Library/application support/tribot/dependancies/libtogl.so . I know that anyone with minor knowledge of computers could fix this problem in seconds, but I don't have the slightest clue as to how to fix this. All i am trying to do is run TriBot with a private proxy for RS3. If anyone can help me resolve this issue comment on here or leave another way I can contact you I'd really appreciate it. Willing to pay $10 to anyone that can help me. Thank you.

      Over the past couple of weeks I've been having clients "randomly" freezing after running out of Memory..
      Current set-up:
      Running 10 - 15 clients @ 356 MB. Only 1 account per client (no tabs). Not using Looking Glass. Running the same script on all accounts (Auto Fisher Pro) Operating system is Windows Server 2012 Using < 50% of CPU & RAM The freeze is seemingly random and usually only happens on 1 or 2 of the clients. Doesn't seem to be task based as it's happened in multiple scenarios. 

      Any ideas / suggestions on how to fix?

      Hello,
      So I found the Mac guide that works through most common errors and issues with the Mac install, but I'm still having issues. 
      Here are screenies of everything that was commonly asked for in the previous thread I read to work through this. 
      The 'you need Java...' message is what launches whenever I try to load Tribot
      Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Hi everyone,
      I am very new to TriBot, although fairly experienced in the botting world, and tried installing it for the first time today. However, on launching Tribot_Loader a white box with a red X in one corner opens, and on mouseover changes the pointer to a loading icon. Clicking the red X doesn't actually close the window and after a while an error pops up saying "Java Platform SE binary is not responding".
       
      I combed through the forums looking for solutions, and I tried uninstalling a reinstalling the correct Java version (JDK 8u131), re-downloaded the loader multiple times, and even used the "jarfix" recommended by the mods on some threads. Unsure of what to do now.
