Unhappy Sherlock gone AWOL

Since installing 10.1.3, I can no longer use Sherlock. There's a brief flicker when I try to run it, then nothing.

This has stumped me. I'm aware that 10.1.3 can cause problems if any Apps have been moved, but as far as I can recall I haven't tinkered with Sherlock at all. It's there, in the OSX applications folder.That's where it should be, is it not? Any thoughts - advice - ideas - anything! would be most welcome.

I don't know if this would change anything, but my copy of sherlock is in /Applications/Utilities, not /Applications.

Also, somewhat unrelated, has anyone else noticed a huge performance boost with sherlock under 10.1.3? Under 10.1.2 it was basically unusable on my system (g4 500, 896 RAM) because of how slow it was, now it opens in one bounce and finds the first results in a couple of seconds as opposed to 30 or 40.

xchanyazy, fwiw, your sherlock has moved. its vanilla home is /Applications.

jx, could you show us:

% ls -l /Applications/Sherlock.app/Contents/MacOS/Sherlock
-rwxrwxr-x 1 root admin 1256124 Feb 19 19:51 /Applications/Sherlock.app/Contents/MacOS/Sherlock

i see that 10.1.3 update touched sherlock, at least, on my rig. i updated to 10.1.3 on 19 Feb.

Sherlock gone AWOL

Oh my gawd. How do I do that? I pasted the argument in Terminal and got this:

[localhost:~] jx% ls -l /Applications/Sherlock.app/Contents/MacOS/Sherlock
ls: /Applications/Sherlock.app/Contents/MacOS/Sherlock: No such file or directory
-rwxrwxr-x 1 root admin 1256124 Feb 19 19:51 /Applications/Sherlock.app/Contents/MacOS/Sherlock
[localhost:~] jx% -rwxrwxr-x 1 root admin 1256124 Feb 19 19:51 /Applications/Sherlock.app/Contents/MacOS/Sherlock
-rwxrwxr-x: Command not found.
[localhost:~] jx%

I'm logged in as jx - set meself up as a user once upon a time and never could work out how to get back to the original setup. Didn't want to mess - I'm rubbish in the command line.

Wink Fixed Sherlock

I reply on this forum helped me fix Shelock.

I trashed the "~/library/ Internet Search Sites" folderand the crashing abated (on next launch it is replaced with a new folder)

Possibly the custom search site I added contributed or standard ones became corrupted.
