I've made several searches to find out how to install plug-ins in Logic. They all say that you have to put the files into Library. But there is no Library in Lion, isn't it? Anyway, I'm lost! If anyone could help! That would be great!

Lion does have a library.

Library>Audio>Plugins>Components as it was with previous versions.

The user library is one stage more difficult to find as you need to press the option key to see it in the finder "Go" menu.

But how do you install stuff from DVD now when Rosetta is gone?

Example error msg:
You can't open the application install Kontakt Experience because PowerPC applications are no longer supported.

Well, I was just wondering if there's a trick to install pre intel Kontakt libraries on non-Rosetta Lion Macs - from DVD that is. Luckily I can still use even my old East-West #1 libraries since I once upon a time installed them on an external drive. But it is annoying having to search them manually from the files menu in Kontakt 5. The new K5 "available libraries" tab is so sweet, but maybe these old libraries simply doesn't support that?
