Larry, I'm _restoring_ from Time Machine now. It will take about an hour because it's 40gig. I will try reinstalling next.
Old Toad: Meanwhile I'll download iLife support, in case these steps don't work.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 30, 2013 12:09 PM (in response to Old Toad)
Old Toad, iLife Support can't be opened because it's from an unidentified developer. That's strange.
I reinstalled iPhoto again and it disappeared again. It isn't in my application folder. I did a spotlight search and it didn't turn up any apps. That's very strange. I'll try reinstalling a third time.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 30, 2013 12:21 PM (in response to Old Toad)
Old Toad, I overrode security to launch the iLife Support installer, but it told me that it wouldn't run because I already had a newer version of the software installed.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 30, 2013 1:48 PM (in response to Neil2)
I see you've overrided the lock. Here's how to do it permanently if you did something different:
Go into the System/Security & Privacy/General preference pane, unlock the lock at the bottom and select the Anywhere radio button at the bottom.
Then you should be able to run that updater
Check in your System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/iLifeSlideshow.framework/Versions/A folder to see if you have the missing "iLifeshow" file.
If it's there repair disk permissions with Disk Utility, reboot and try again.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 30, 2013 3:03 PM (in response to Old Toad)
OK, I got to the PrivateFrameworks folder and didn't see the iLifeSlideshow.framework folder. So, I did a Spotlight search, just to be sure. I don't have it even though I ran the iPhoto installer three times today and the iLife Support installer told me I already had a newer version (of iLife Support) already installed.
Just to be sure, I entered Time Machine and did the search there too. Nothing.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 30, 2013 4:38 PM (in response to Neil2)
Spotlight can't find it because it can't search system folders. Download and use Find Any File to do the search. It can search system and invisible folder and even packages like applications, etc.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 30, 2013 5:58 PM (in response to Old Toad)
OK, I used Find Any File and did a root search and the item came up greyed out in the results window and the bottom of the window said '<item has disappeared>' without the quotes.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 30, 2013 6:09 PM (in response to Neil2)
I also searched the package contents of the iPhoto installer and the iLife Support installer. Not there either.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 30, 2013 6:55 PM (in response to Neil2)
If it's not there I wonder why the installer said there was a newer version of it already installed. I'll bet because there was a receipt
Ah ha! Run FAF again but this time looking for iPhotoLibraryUpgrader.
Dag the .bom file and the .plist file to the trash from the search results window. Then apply the iPhoto Library Upgrader again. it should install.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 30, 2013 7:01 PM (in response to Old Toad)
That was very clever, but the search result was still null. I included invisible items and did root. Nothing.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 31, 2013 1:11 AM (in response to Neil2)
I've the same problem. After re-install clean OS Lion, iphoto doesn't work. So, I started TM to recover a previous version (from a backup system with Snow Leopard) 8.1.2. Nothing successfully.
I remember when I switched from Snow Leopard to Lion did not have this problem because it was not a clean install, After installation of LION I restored the settings I had in Snow.
Another strange thing (for me, a "rookie") is that iMovie and iDVD using the same procedure work perfectly.
Thanks to all in advance

I solved it, I restored the folder indicated by Old Toad using TM.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 31, 2013 7:29 AM (in response to Neil2)
OK, I decided I would fix this by just buying the new version of iPhoto from the app store. The thing is I still have the problem. That is very strange.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 31, 2013 9:26 PM (in response to Neil2)
I'm afraid that I have now stumped everybody. The app store should have installed everything I needed.
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 1, 2013 1:16 PM (in response to Neil2)
I finally solved this problem. I had to 'Reset Home Directory Permissionssions and ACL's'. The instructios are here:
Note that this isn't the same thing as repairing disk permissios in Disk Utility.
