My Living Desktop works with Yosemite but there have been reports of a problem when clicking on Scenes and Settings from the rising sun menu bar icon. If there is a problem after initially running My Living Desktop in Yosemite, try reinstalling it. If that does not resolve the problem, another way to open the Scenes and Settings is to hold down the OPTION key on the keyboard and select Desktop Settings from the rising sun menu bar icon. That will open the preferences so just close that window and you can then change your Scenes.
Older versions of My Living Desktop
My Living Desktop is now supported through Apple’s Mac App Store here. If you have an older version that required a registration number, that is no longer needed with the version of My Living Desktop at the Mac App Store. Please note that this will require a new purchase through the app store.
My Living Desktop and System 10.9, Mavericks
My Living Desktop works great with Mavericks. If there is a problem after initially running My Living Desktop in Mavericks, try reinstalling it. To do that, OPTION-click on the rising sun menubar icon and select Remove My Living Desktop. Then reboot your Mac. Download a fresh copy from here and place it in your Applications folder. Start it up and the problem should resolve.
My Living Desktop and System 10.8, Mountain Lion
My Living Desktop works great with Mountain Lion too. Occasionally there is an initial installation issue. After first upgrading, if you receive a message saying that My Living Desktop is not compatible with Mountain Lion or if it behaves strangely, simply reboot your Mac and start My Living Desktop again. You might need to do this twice until Mountain Lion fully recognizes My Living Desktop. After that, My Living Desktop runs fine.
Receiving the message “You cannot run My Living Desktop with this version of Mac OS X”
There is a problem with some version of OS X’s screen saver selection preference that will incorrectly report this message. This can come up right after an update to My Living Desktop but does not always happen. The fix is simple: Just select any other screen saver then re-select My Living Desktop. That resets the screen saver selection within OS X and the System Preferences and fixes the problem.
Removing My Living Desktop
Removing My Living Desktop is as easy as dragging the application to the trash. As long as it is running, it will detect that you have trashed it and will commence removal of all the portions of itself: the screen saver, the scenes, the preferences, and other miscellaneous files.
Receiving a message about Corrupted Scene Files
There is a problem with some older Quicktime Video Codecs Plugins such as Flip4Mac, Divx, or 3ivx that can cause a message about scenes being corrupted when they are actually fine. These and any other outdated Quicktime Codecs must be properly removed in order for My Living Desktop to work correctly. It is recommended that you run the appropriate un-installers for each of the old Plugins and in the case of Flip4Mac, they have finally updated their codec to work with 10.7 and 10.8.
Several users have also found success by simply reinstalling OS X. You can do the simpler overwrite install of OS X instead of a full clean install and this resolves the issue as well.
