KDS on OS X El Capitan (Beta)

Hello,

 

If someone is trying to use/install KDS v3.0 on the public beta (4) of OS X El Capitan (10.11), you'll probably have a problem at the workspace selection.

As i found no information about this on the Internet, but solved the problem, here is my solution.

 

To resolve this problem, I modified the file located here:

"/Applications/KDS_3.0.0.app/Contents/eclipse/kinetis-design-studio.ini" and removed the lines 7 and 8:

 

To delete:

-showSplash

com.somniumtech.branding.kds

 

Modified file:

-startup

plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.0.v20140415-2008.jar

--launcher.library

plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.cocoa.macosx.x86_64_1.1.200.v20150204-1316

-product

com.somniumtech.branding.kds.ide

--launcher.defaultAction

openFile

-name

Kinetis Design Studio

--launcher.XXMaxPermSize

256m

-vm

features/com.somniumtech.jre.macosx.cocoa.x86_64_1.7.0.76/jre/Contents/Home/lib/jli/libjli.dylib

-vmargs

-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.7

-Xms256m

-Xmx512m

-XX:PermSize=256m

-XX:MaxPermSize=512m

-XstartOnFirstThread

-Dorg.eclipse.swt.internal.carbon.smallFonts

 

With that modification, the splash screen is not display and you should be able to choose you workspace and use KDS.

Hooray!  Your post rescued me, too!

(Hoping the next update to KDS addresses whatever problem this is, but in the mean time, thank you!)

Thank you so much for that comment. 

Was sitting here with a "DeaD" KDS on El Capitan beta 8, which locked up after the splash screen had disappeared, did what you suggested and now works.
