This guide covers Therion 5.3.16 installation on OS X (10.9+) using Homebrew package manager.
We will need:
- Command Line Tools
- MacTeX distribution - http://www.tug.org/mactex/
- Homebrew package manager - http://brew.sh - In comparison to other package managers like Fink or MacPorts Homebrew works hard to avoid package duplication - Homebrew compiles its packages against libraries built into OS X.
- Terminal - standard part of OS X installation
Download and install MacTeX full package from http://www.tug.org/mactex/.
Launch Terminal and type the following command to install Command Line Tools:
Click “Install” to download and install Xcode Command Line Tools.
Install Homebrew - see instructions on http://brew.sh/.
brew update brew doctor
Follow (if any) instructions in results of “doctor” command.
brew tap homebrew/science
brew install https://raw.githubusercontent.com/un1x86/homebrew-science/therion/therion.rb
Now it is good time for cofee/tee/beer or whatever you prefer as it definitely takes a few minutes to download/compile/install all dependencies.
Done? Still awake? Lets try to launch Therion GUI alias XTherion:
Loch should be available as well in Applications folder.
