Newbie MAC question: which download file is the installer?

Post by okelly » Wed May 25, 2011 7:19 pm

Hi all,

A newbie MAC question: Which Codelite download file is the MAC OS X installer?

I'm fairly handy with linux and Windows, but I've never been under the hood on OS X, though I understand it is a linux variant. A MAC user is asking me to set up Codelite for them. In the present Codelite manual, I did not see a section for MAC installation. That section might only be one sentence, but what is that sentence? :D

Codelite rocks! Thanks to everyone who makes it so good. And thanks for any help on my question.

Regards,
Owen

This is the mac "installer":

http://sourceforge.net/projects/codelit ... p/download
Its a simple Zip file, just extract it and will you have a folder named: CodeLite.app/ which is a MacOS bundle.

to run it, just d-click it or from a terminal, type:

open CodeLite.app/

Oops, I had looked in that release folder and somehow missed the "mac" hiding in that file name. Many thanks!
