Very helpful statement, let me try to be as helpful: find someone who is able to follow simple instructions.
Rule one: if Minecraft is working (and I assume it does) the minecraft folder is in the exact location the linked post specifies.
The problem to find minecraft folder on Macs is due to the fact that there are several 'Library' folders in Mac OS X, three at least. People are only looking in the most obvious one in the top level of the hard drive, stating that it isn't there. That's true, you're looking in the wrong place. But instead of actually doing what was suggested, the normal reaction would be to insist on the absence of the desired object. Lion made it worse by hiding the user's Library folder, but I repeat myself as I pointed it out already in the linked post.
Long story short: find a more experienced Mac-user or describe in detail at which point you get stuck, post any error messages etc.
'not working' is not enough and implies you haven't put much effort into this.
I'm having this problem too. I know the folder is there, but Mountain Lion is being a total idiot and hiding every important folder in some weird hidden folder. I suggest looking through every single folder in the library. That's what I'm doing now.
I am an active minecraft player on mac and I have loads of expirence with Macs. Where you can find the Minecraft folder on your mac is the following:
1. Open finder
2. Go to your user: i.e. home
3. Go into Library
4. Now in the search of Finder search "Minecraft"
5. You will probally see the app. Ignore these sights.
6. Right under the search bar there should be a toolbar that says the following:
Search This Mac "Library" I Contents File Name
7. On this toolbar select "Library"
8. You will now see a folder titled "minecraft"
9. Sometimes a glitch occurs where a pop-up comes up saying "minecraft could not be displayed because the origional contects could not be found" just ignore this and re-launch the folder.
10. All done
Now there are some simpler ways of searching but this is the way i always do it. Now you can always create a shortcut to this folder that I can give also how to do. Its a little strange but simple as heck if you know how to do it. Hopefully this helps with everything...
