Assets/NGUI/Editor/FreeType.dylib is missing

Assets/NGUI/Editor/FreeType.dylib is missing

Just had this problem with NGUI. If you are on Mac you can probably solve this by changing the /usr/local/lib folder permission. This happened to me because NGUI need to copy the FreeType.dylib file to the /usr/local/lib folder and if the folder doesn’t have the proper permissions for that – nothing will happen :B

The error message is actually wrong because the file do exist ar Assets/NGUI/Editor/ folder but it does not exist on /usr/local/lib folder.

The fix:

* Obviously you’ll need an admin permission anyway

1) Click on the locker to make changes:

Assets/NGUI/Editor/FreeType.dylib is missing

Assets/NGUI/Editor/FreeType.dylib is missing

 

2) Add your user and change the folder permission to “Read & Write”:

 

Assets/NGUI/Editor/FreeType.dylib is missing

Assets/NGUI/Editor/FreeType.dylib is missing

 

3) Result:

 

Assets/NGUI/Editor/FreeType.dylib is missing

Assets/NGUI/Editor/FreeType.dylib is missing

 

Now just go back to Unity, open NGUI Font Maker in NGUI > Open > Font Maker and your problem should be gone. If you are still getting errors then try other solutions at NGUI’s forum
