Hey guys, im very new to mac and i hardly know its way of operating. I usally play minecraft on a pc but it broke so im stuck with this mac. Minecraft wont seem to open. And it has like a "no symbol" on the Minecraft icon for some reason.
When i try to open it, it gives me this message.
Ive tried going into the terminal and pasting the minecraft application code, but no luck.
Im able to open minecraft in the launcher.jar and it looks like this
And when i log in and click on my world, it says im out of memory
My java is up to date. Heres the Minecraft.app info
I seriously have no idea what to do and im dying to play. If ANYONE can please help me out id really appreciate it.
Heres my system specs-
if you cant read the specs, here it is below.

what version of os x do you have? keep in mind that support for 10.5.8 is being dropped all over the world, so if you aren't at least running 10.6.8 then you're asking for trouble.
looks like you need to remove all aspects of minecraft from the library/application support/minecraft folder (back your world up on the desktop). you should also update to java 6, latest release, and then re download minecraft, if it doesn't work look up "allocating more memory to minecraft mac" on google. there is a crap ton of help. but don't forget, what is your os?
Im using Mac OS X 10.4.11
I went to java to download java 6 but they said apple automaticly updates the software and they wouldnt give me a link.
I deleted everything from minecraft off my computer, but when i went to download the linux laucher or the mac launcher it wouldnt even let me download it, it said in the download box "cannot create file".
Well i used a flashdrive to get the linux launcher to my mac, and it opened fine and actually let me play. It only came with a .jar file, so do i need to get the minecraft.app back? or do i already have all the minecraft files because i didnt see any. I want the files so i can put optfine in it because i have a big lag.
