I'm pretty new to the mac environment and no experience wiith X11 or the terminal but have managed to install the macports, X11 and Kdenlive, using the instructions from the following:
I found a Youtube movie with the following instructions...The reason I mention Youtube is that I had problems getting this to work from the instructions above.
"you should install macports first then type the following commands"
port -d selfupdate
port -u upgrade outdated
port install kdenlive
This seems to have worked so far....BUT, after reading the Post-Install instructions and typing them into the terminal:
sudo chown -R $USER ~/Library/Preferences/KDE, I receive the error
chown: -/Library/Preferences/KDE: No such file or directory
Can someone please help me!
THIS PROBLEM IS NOW SOLVED! If anybody is interested...
I managed to install and did the following with the POST INSTALL instructions...
I started from the second command - since there seemed to be a problem with the first one - no directory.
So, typed in the remaining commands...
sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.freedesktop.dbus-system.plist
sudo chown $USER /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist
launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist
open -a kdeinit4
The installation window appeared and I've followed the steps...
One item didn't load - some kind of movie player. I can't actually remember what it was but pretty sure there will be a solution.
That's as far as I've got just now, thanks for reading.
