I'm on a Mac and I've been in a survival-mode world generated from a random seed since getting the game a couple weeks ago. I've recently stumbled across a village. I heard I can trade with the villagers by right-clicking.

I've clicked and clicked. They just stare at me. Is there some Mac secret where you have to stand on your head or something while you right-click?

Are you updated to the newest development version? That might be a reason.

If that's not it, then I have no idea- I don't use Macs.
I disapprove.

You have to be running at least snapshot 12w21.  It's not a feature in 1.2.5.  Also, yes, stand on your head.

You forgot about the putting the paper bag over their head.

And then you must do the herobrine dance.

Anyways, village trading isn't a feature that is in 1.2.5 and its in snapsnot 12w12 so make sure to download that if you want the feature. Make sure to read the bug list before you download it to be warned though. If you do not know how to download a snapshot you can probably hit up wiki and find a guild there.

I'm on a windows PC and I can't trade with villagers either! I only got the game a few months ago so I'm not a complete noob, but still vaguely noob-ish. I'd really love to know what their problem is! They just stare at me for ages no matter how many times I right click. I've been through the pages about Villagers and Trading on the wiki, but nothing is helping. What the frick is a snapshot? Gawd this is confusing. Lol someone help explain it to me in a way I will understand!

I think I see your problem right there.

Snapshots are bits of the coming update, released early.  They're buggy as hell but full of fun new stuff.  You can download them from this forum, but be warned about the buggy.

Villager trading isn't in version 1.2.5.  It's a coming feature, and it's in the last 2 snapshots.
