Thank you!
I repaired my permissions and the z88aurora started working. However, my difficulties continue. I cannot import my step files. I have a simple 3D-model made by using the formZ 3D modeler. It can export in IGES, STEP, DXF and STL formats.
Two types failure reports appear in trying to import STEP files:

1)..."sh: -c: line 0: syntax error near unexpected token `(' "
2) "sh: /z88GeoCon: No such file or directory
usage: cp [-R [-H | -L | -P]] [-fi | -n] [-apvX] source_file target_file
cp [-R [-H | -L | -P]] [-fi | -n] [-apvX] source_file ... target_directory
Start des CAD-Konverters z88GeoCon ...
(z88aurora:916): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to find default local directory monitor type"

Well, I am a beginner in X11 and everything looks and feels a lot more difficult than Mac OSX GUI.

Hello,

no problem, if the installation of aurora works properly you will have no bearing of x11.
your error messages:
1) I have no idea :roll:
2) it looks still like permission problems or the path of the geometry bib "geocon" doesn´t work properly.
first, open a shell, change to /user/bin, then type "ls *a". then you see all entities with "a". you will although see "aurorastart". please type "cat aurorastart".
it appears:

#!/bin/bash
set -e
export PATH=$PATH:.
export LANG=C
export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=$HOME/z88aurorav1/addons/geocon/mac
echo $PATH
echo $LANG
echo $DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH
cd
cd z88aurorav1/bin/mac
z88aurora

is the PATH variable the same on your mac?
Have you changed all permissions to write also of subdirectories of z88aurorav1?

Don´t abandon hope, so you can get familiar with your mac :mrgreen: and me too

Hi!

By now I have tried to install Aurora into 4 different Macs with only one partial success in a MacBook laptop. However the laptop screen is much too small to do any serious work.
My present installation trial into an iMac ends up in in this failure report when trying to start a new project. I can see all the folders in the new project window but choosing one and pressing OK the Aurora aborts:

"(z88aurora:416): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to find default local directory monitor type
/usr/bin/aurorastart: line 11: 416 Abort trap z88aurora"

Dear JukkaTer,

Hi everybody,

it seems on some Macs there arose this problem with the update to OS 10.6.7.
(Not on my MacPro nor on my MacBook but on at least two other Macs I know).
As the problem seems quite unreproducible, at least a reliable solution can be given.
If the problem occurs, a simple reinstall does the trick. But please remember to save
your project data if you stored it directly in the z88aurorav1-folder, as the
"sudo uninstz88" will erase this directory completely.

Good luck and best regards,

Hello! I am using a 2010 MacBook Pro, OS 10.6.8, and I have the same problem described in this post...I have installed the most recent GTK and Mac Aurora versions from your website, but all of the files are "gray" in color, and the Aurora control buttons are not accessible. Is this still a known problem?

Many thanks!

Hello,

At the moment we are working fast on an improved Z88Aurora1b version, especially improved for mac. This version is ready on Monday, the 11.07. Perhaps you can install the improved version. But please make sure that your GTK+ is installed properly and your working directories contain no blanks or special characters.
