    Default Trouble installing Zimlets in Desktop on Mac

    Hi, I have downloaded some zimlets into my download folder on my Mac (default location). When I try to install them in the preferences section of Zimbra Desktop, I get an error message that says 'error deploying zimlet' (I noted that dialog requested a zip file, so I zipped the Zimlet folders before upload).

    I cannot move the zipped (or unzipped) folders directly into the Zimbra Zimlets folder either (using Finder), as it says that the 'contents of the zimlets folder cannot be modified'....

    Any other suggestions?
    Thanks

    When you zip.. you need to zip it from with in the folder by selecting all the individual files (and not from outside the folder).

    Other easy way to do this is from terminal.
    Go into the Zimlet's folder...
    [/tmp/com_zimbra_test]$ zip -r com_zimbra_test.zip *

    Thanks for your reply.

    Unfortunately zipping from within the folders still gave me the deployment error....

    I am a new Mac user - so the terminal method sounds a little beyond me I'm afraid....
