Preferences Error
Closed, InvalidPublic


iMac, 27-inch,Mid 2010,3.2 GHz Intel Core i3,ATI Radeon HD 5670 512 MB, OS X 10.8 (12A269), Blender 2.58(2.58, 2011-Jul-31), 3Dwaremac-V10_0_6-7 dmg.
When I select 3Dconnection, in the system preferences panel (under "Other"), I get a drop down error on the panel that reads "Preferences Error" "Could not load preference pane". Consequently, I can't set the preferences for my Space Navigator. I think it will work otherwise. I uninstalled previous drivers and cannot find any 'plist' files that did not get erased from previous installs. Thank you, in advance.



Please try using newer blender i.e. current testbuild2 from or 2.63a release from

Currently it's not clear report for me. I can not remember we've got 3dconnexion settings in user preferences. Also not clear what is that "Other" panel you're referring to -- i can not see it in our preferences. Is that system preferences you're mentioning is user preferences of blender or it's settings of your operation system?

So far 3dconnexion works fine here on linux, it's settings are displaying properly when clicking needed button on it.

I don´t see atm where this is a blender related bug.
Looks more as perhaps 3Dconnexion S<W has a problem in 10.8 ?
I can`t test this as i don`t have such a device.


I close this bug now.
This is not blender related, but may be an incompatibility of prefpane/drivers from 3dconnexion.
Please contact the vendor if the problem persists.
