Kenya - Mac Faq
64bit or 32bit version?
Kenya uses the swt GUI toolkit (which is also used in the Java IDE eclipse). Unfortunately there have been some issues with the interaction of recent versions of SWT, MacOS X and Kenya.
cocoa version is the only Mac version that works without known bugs.
The 64-bit carbon one
occasionally breaks when debugging and then clicking back on the kenya/java
The 32-bit JVM (Java Virtual Machine) (the 32/64 bit refers to the JVM, not
operating system) should be the default on most Mac systems - you can
check/configure this using Applications > Utilities > Java Prefences from
the Mac Finder.
However, on Snow Leopard, the default JVM is the 64-bit 1.6, so Java
Preferences has to be used to change to the 32-bit JVM (with the 32bit version
of Kenya), or use the buggy 64 bit version of Kenya with the default JVM.
Actually running Kenya
In the directory where Kenya is installed, there is a kenya-XXX.sh file. (Where XXX is the version/bit name of Kenya installed). This is a shell script, to launch kenya you need to run this shell script, either by running ./kenya-XXX.sh in a terminal, or some other means.
