I think I fixed my problem. I stuck the dmg part in applications and left iJournal on my desktop. This seems to be the only way it will work, which is good enough for me. But the point is I'm on my iBook right now!

You don't need the dmg file. All you have to do is doubleclick on the dmg to unmount it, then open up the disk image it creates, drag the iJournal icon from there to where you want it, and get rid of the dmg and the disk image.

I noticed in your previous post that you were worried about it "copying" instead of just moving. That's what it's supposed to do. The computer treats the disk image as if it were a CD or a floppy, existing seperately from the hard drive. So when you move things from the disk image to the hard drive, it copies instead of moves.

When I delete the dmg file the iJournal won't open though, that's all I'm saying. I don't know what the deal is, if I'm being stupid I'll hopefully figure it out.

The .dmg file is like a .zip on Windows. It just works different.. instead of decompressing it like a .zip and leaving a folder there, it's more like it leaves a temporary disk image there, and you're just supposed to copy what's inside to whereever you want it (iJournal, being an application, should probably go in the Applications folder...). You don't need to keep it, and you don't have to mount it each time you want to use iJournal. Just mount it once (after you download it), copy the app inside to your Apps folder, then drag the disk image to the trash, and trash the .dmg file. There's no reason this shouldn't work for you.

Alright,well I don't know what I'm doing wrong but anytime I trash any part of it, when I try to open the icon later it says that it's only an alias and I don't know what to do about that.

1) Delete everything you have now. DMG files, aliases, programs, whatever.
2) Download the client.
3) Double click the DMG file, then open the disk image.
4) Drag the iJournal program to your Applications folder. Do not hold down modifier keys to make an alias while dragging. Do not drag to your Favorites folder, which will create an alias. Just drag the Application.
5) Drag the disk image to the trash, then the DMG and gz files there too.

Now the application is in Applications and will stay there. You can make aliases wherever you want, and they'll keep working even after you log out and back in.

Hope this helps

Yes, yes, it worked! I don't know why the hell I couldn't get that right. I managed to fix my floppy drive problems and everything on my own but then I just went stupid :D
