I have no idea how to fix the problem of "The application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. " yet.

However , an alternative solution to fix this problem is to install Calibre. It will setup your system , then PRS Note Reader should be able to run.

Hmm, not really a Python guy, but this looks like it may just compile in a Mac with minimal work. If I get a chance I'll have a fumble through the source and see. I wouldn't hold your breath though...

Great to hear that

Let's me summarize the current problem of Mac porting.

PRS Note reader use python-qt4 as the GUI library. And according to this article "· How to make standalone OS X application bundles from PyQt apps using py2app". It can not build dmg by using py2app with built-in python. It must use the python from macports.

Moreover , python-qt4 do not have any pre-built binary available. So I think it should build python-qt4 using macports. But unfortunately that due to #22926 . qt4-mac was broken, and therefore I can not continue the porting.

Ahh, I'll probably wait awhile then, before even looking at this. Thanks for the info.

SVG format

The .note files are simple SVG files, and I am working on a note editor in java. It also reads standard svgs. Look (just found a pic on the net, am not fan of the jets):

Good! In fact , I have considered to write a convertor of svg to .note format in the beginning of the project.

btw, anybody is working on a reader of the annotation format?
