I just installed iTerm 0.10 on my OS X Snow Leopard system. When I try to launch it, the menu bar says "iTerm" for about a tenth of a second and then it vanishes. It's not listed in the Activity Monitor.

Has anyone gotten iTerm to run on Snow Leopard? Any ideas?

Works fine for me. Post a crash log. – Hasaan Chop Nov 17 '09 at 4:51
Where would I find the logging output? – Ethan Nov 17 '09 at 5:05
In Console (/Applications/Utilities/). – jtbandes Nov 17 '09 at 5:36

Try removing, ~/Library/Preferences/net.sourceforge.iTerm.plist and start it again. Snow Lepord has some known issues with iTerm.

Thanks. That seemed to work, at least for now. – Ethan Nov 17 '09 at 10:18
