Kerkythea for Mac?

Hey guys,

So I'm about to download Kerkythea on my new Mac. I can't remember but I think someone told me using or downloading Kerkythea is different on a Mac than on a PC.

Is there anything I need to know before I go and download Kerkythea onto my Mac?

Cheers!

Can anyone help me out?

I looked on the Kerkythea website and it says I must download "X11" before I can download or run Kerkythea.

However, it only has instructions for people using Mac Leopard or Tiger... but my version is called "Lion".

Anyone know what I am to do?

I think you'll have to talk with Dex about this as far as I know, he is the only one using Mac after you!

I also use mac, and i alredy have x11. X11 is a computer software system and network protocol that provides a basis for graphical user interfaces (GUIs) and rich input device capability for networked computers. (Wikipedia )
I think, (i'm not sure.) that most of macs already come with x11 installed.
Anyway, returning to Kerkythea, I downloaded the new version from kerky's official website. And this is all what i got:





and i have Mac's OS X Leopard
So I dont know why, but i think this new version has a problem (??) or maybe my mac has a problem....

Hi thryve

X11 is already built in OS X Lion..
there only yet an compatibility problem on it yet.. but hopefully i have figure it out an fix for it.. (this might work as well for you JMGV.. but i don't know why is there a problem on snow leopard)

first of all you need download the Kerkythea file.. and mount it (double-tap.. to mount the disk image)

then all you have to do is Open up Terminal app
and write this commands lines

Code:
  $ cd
  $ mkdir kerky
  $ cd kerky/
  $ cp /Volumes/Kerkythea2008/Kerkythea2008.pkg/Contents/Archive.pax.gz .
  $ gzip -d Archive.pax.gz 
  $ pax -r -f Archive.pax 
  $ ./Kerkythea
then it will install automatically.. and be placed somewhere in a folder called kerkythea.. on your account on Finder

Good Luck any help with mac.. just ask..

When I double-click on the Kerkythea.dmg file that I downloaded from their site (I guess it's the installer?) nothing happens. It won't open.

Hi ...
I know this is an older thread but since the official Kerkythea webpage is down I'm urgently looking for a Mac version of Kerkythea. Can someone send me the dmg & material libraries? Many thanks in advance
