OS X 3.4 Installer Package Issue


For some reason my OS X install did not have an instance of the /usr/local/bin directory. This caused the installer to fail.

After I created the directory the installer succeeds but the executable doesn’t have the appropriate execute bits set.

ls -al
-rwxr--r--  1 root  wheel   78 Apr 29 20:23 mgcb
Jamess-MacBook-Pro:~ james$ mgcb
-bash: /usr/local/bin/mgcb: Permission denied
Jamess-MacBook-Pro:~ james$ 

The add-in was appropriately installed for Xamarin and the example projects spooled up correctly.

So glad to see this coming together on ‘day 0’ of the windows release as well!

Happy to help test anything if necessary.

Wow. /usr/local/bin does not appear to exist in a standard install of OS X, but it may be in the default PATH.

and OS X updates may clear out /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/lib

We will have to update the OS X installer to create that directory and give it the appropriate permissions if it does not exist.

PR is up to fix this. People might need to work around it until we can get a release out.

Wow, I had the same issues. Googling for about an hour led to nothing, but a random search in the MonoGame forum led to this. Thanks for the workaround
