What I usually do is just open the texture-packs folder and then I have access to everything. But my Minecraft crashed, and now I can't get on without it crashing. I've been trying to find the "Error Report" in users/library/application support/minecraft but there are two things wrong:

  1. Thing that is different is that my library folder is in the shared folder.

  2. Is that correct? Even when I do get into application support, Minecraft isn't in it. And I have no idea where else it could be.

Suggestion: when you get it working, bookmark your texture folder. – Batophobia Jun 19 '13 at 21:09
There are two Library folders: one for your user (/Users/[yourname]/Library), one for your system (/Library). Minecraft normally puts it in the Application Support folder in the user's Library. Have you looked in both? – SevenSidedDie Jun 19 '13 at 21:45

Point finder to the Hard drive the install is stored on (Macintosh HD is a common name) and type minecraft.jar into the search. Then right click minecraft.jar and click "Show enclosing folder" and you should be in ~/path/minecraft/bin

If this doesn't work, ill update it when I get home from work and can use a mac (running from memory). – legacy Jun 20 '13 at 15:21

You can manually make it visible by executing this command via terminal: chflags nohidden ~/Library

Alternatively, you can Open a Finder window, click the Go Menu item and click Go to Folder, then enter into the text field ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft and click Go.
