I have Demeter installed successfully on my mac (Yosemite 10.10.5).
Athena works just fine. However, when I try running Artemis, it begins
to open fine and all the GUI windows look good, but then a popup that
says 'Restore from an autosave file' with buttons for 'Cancel' or 'OK'
appears. I'm not able to click on anything and the program does not
progress from this point. I don't remember this happening when I first
installed. Is there an easy way to go in and trash some potential
autosave file I have that is causing problems? If so, where would that
be located? I dug around a bit, but couldn't find anything obvious. It's
a little odd, because I've not really used the program. I simply tested
it when I first installed to ensure it worked and that was it.
Any thoughts or comments would be useful. If additional information
would help in diagnosing the issue, I'm happy to provide it.
Without some hint from screen messages or some such, there is not much
chance of my troubleshooting the problem.
I think the easiest work-around is to simply disable the use of the
autosave file. This is normally done by setting the Artemis-->autosave
parameter to false using the preferences tool in Artemis.
Obviously that's a problem. There are two solutions:
1. Figure out where the autosave file is on disk. It's called
"artemis.autosave" -- I think. It certainly is something.autosave.
2. Find the "demeter.ini" file (should be in $HOME/.horae) and edit it
with a text editor. Find the [artemis] section, change "autosave" to
That should make the problem go away, at the cost of not having an
