Thanks Michael, I appreciate you taking the time to reply.
I have created a script just to run our mono test exe on Mac to see if
adding DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH will solve our issue.
It did not solve our problem, we get exception about the libfreetype
version. I did not yet create the app bundle (plist etc), it's just a sh
script to run our app in project bin/debug folder.
Here is script code to run our app:
DIR=$(cd "$(dirname "$0")"; pwd)
exec mono "$DIR/test.exe"
Now I wanted to see the mono debug info but for some reason I'm not able to
see/get any debug info.
If I manually run a command in Terminal: 'MONO_LOG_LEVEL=debug test.exe' I
will see lots of debug info which is useful to debug problems.
I wanted to get the same debug info when running script but I can't get
anything. Was trying several options with MONO_LOG_LEVEL=debug and without
it. With --debug etc.
When running script below debuglog.txt file is created but there no debug
info, file is empty. When running this script I only see new Terminal window
and then our test app will start. There is no debug info anywhere.
Debug script version:
DIR=$(cd "$(dirname "$0")"; pwd)
exec mono --debug "$DIR/test.exe" $* 2>&1 1> "$DIR/debuglog.txt"
Will Terminal window be displayed when running this sh script via Mac .app
Any help is appreciated.
