Mac help! Programs won't run from drop-down menu

Post by walevert » Tue Feb 23, 2010 6:36 am

When using Codelite on my Macbook, I can't run programs from within CodeLite itself (Command+F5). I can go into the debug folder for the project and run the program via the executable there, but in CodeLite I just get this message:

Running program: osascript -e 'tell application "Terminal"' -e 'activate' -e 'do script with command "cd "/Users/AustinLeVert/Documents/CS110-HW4" && cd "./Debug" && ./CS110-HW4 "' -e 'end tell'
Program exited with return code: 1

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

There is a bug in codelite's mac version which adds an extra quotation marks to the command which breaks the execution. This will be fixed in next version (which is planned to be released this week)

You need to delete your old codelite.xml and let codelite replace it with a new one.

Since you are using SVN version one, it did not happen for you.
In the latest version of codelite, there is a small utility named 'OpenTerm' which fixes this issue

I just changed the terminal command in preferences to '/Users/franklichtner/Dev/CodeLiteApp/CodeLite.app/Contents/SharedSupport/OpenTerm '$(CMD)'' to keep all my other settings. ;)
I hope there is no other need to replace codelite.xml
