Title: How to install Mobile atlas creator in MAC
Post by: bbairagee on December 11, 2013, 19:24:46
Hi
I need help to install MOBAC in my mac. I read some instructions in MOBAC forum but it is not in details for basic mac users.
Forum says though '' you can start MOBAC by executing the start-up script start.sh by executing following command: chmod u+x start.sh.'' I tried but failed to do it correctly. I need step by step guide  to be honest with you guys. Any help will be really really helpfull.

Hi,
  I personally do not use mac so I do not have direct solution, but did you think about using VirtualBox application or any other virtualization software? It allows you very simply install operation system you need, in this case windows, and run apps inside

  I'm using in this way linux in windows for great success ...

Look for Terminal in your applications, it may be in Utilities.

Open terminal, and type "cd" without the quotes, then, from Finder, drag the directory containing all the MOBAC directories and scripts to the terminal window. It will fill in the path for you  automatically. Then press enter.  You will change directories (the cd command from earlier) to where MOBAC is.

Then you can change the permissions on the start up scripts and executables as needed. +x makes it executable.

Afterwords you should be able to launch MOBAC with "./start.sh" minus the quotes from within the directory that it lives.

If you have more trouble I can dropbox you a zip with everything setup and working tomorrow. Then you can drag the alias to your Dock and just click it.
