iPhoto is not properly anymore since I upgraded on Lion. It starts and seems to be alive in Task Switcher or in the Menu Bar, but there is no open Window for iPhoto.

I re-installed from the AppStore several times, (after deleting it), but I can not open a iPhotoLibrary.

This is the console output:

24.07.11 14:48:12.874 iPhoto: *** NSMapInsert(): attempt to insert notAKeyMarker
24.07.11 14:48:15.000 kernel: (default pager): [KERNEL]: ps_select_segment - send HI_WAT_ALERT
24.07.11 14:48:15.000 kernel: macx_swapon SUCCESS

Any idea what I could do next?

iLife(iPhoto is part of iLife)does not come with Lion you have to download it separately, make sure it's installed XD

Do you think re-installing iLife (from the DVD) makes a difference compared to re-isntalling just iPhoto from the App Store? –  daefu Jul 25 '11 at 12:37
    
I think you can install iLife from the DVD & then it will probably update to be compatible with 10.7. I haven't tried it myself but it worked with iWork so I don't see why it shouldn't work with iLife. I recommend trying to install from the DVD first before buying the app from the App Store –  Samantha Catania Jul 25 '11 at 17:27
    
Thank you very much. I deleted iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand, deleted all iPhoto-related files and folders in /.ibrary and <user>/Library and re-installed from the CD! –  daefu Jul 25 '11 at 19:11

Ingles:
Just find and move to the trash the next file (preferences of iPhoto) /Users/youracount/Library/com.apple.iPhoto.plist

then, open iPhoto.

Works for me.

Español :
Solo elimina el archivo de preferencias del iphoto de la carpeta library de tu cuenta.

Cierra iphoto luego encuentra el archivo y muevelo a la papelera:

/Users/tucuenta/Library/com.apple.iphoto.plist

y vuelve a abrir iphoto. Funcionó para mi.
