My .INI file is :
"
All_Console=Off
Antialias=On
Bounding_Threshold=3
Continue_Trace=Off
Display=Off
Draw_Vistas=On
Height=640
Input_File_Name="./pacman_mod.pov"
Library_Path="/usr/share/povray-3.7"
Library_Path="/usr/share/povray-3.7/ini"
Library_Path="/usr/share/povray-3.7/include"
Library_Path="/usr/local/share/povray-3.7"
Library_Path="/usr/local/share/povray-3.7/ini"
Library_Path="/usr/local/share/povray-3.7/include"
Output_File_Name="./pacman.png"
Output_File_Type=N
Output_To_File=On
Split_Unions=On
Test_Abort=Off
Verbose=On
Width=640
Work_Threads=12
"
I don't know how I should modify it, so that is doesn't use a menu bar,
and show an icon in the macOS dock. "Display=Off" is set, so what shoul
d
I do more ? I want POV-Ray to be quiet ... The menu bar and icon are
embarrassing. That prevents from using anything else than POV-Ray :-(

Thanks for your help.

Regards,
