MacOSX: Installing PAW and PAW++

Normally, PAW and PAW++ comes after your cernlib installation. If you didn’t install cernlib before, all you need to do is writing the following command in your terminal window

$ fink install cernlib

Click here to learn how you can install package manager ‘FINK’ on your Macbook.

As a more advanced version of PAW, you can use PAW++ only if you also have the right components installed. Otherwise you will get an error like;

dyld: Library not loaded: /sw/lib/libXm.2.dylib
Referenced from: /usr/bin/paw++
Reason: image not found
Trace/BPT trap

SW is your fink folder. So the error prompts that you have a missing library file related with lesstif package. So write the following;

$ fink install lesstif

In a few minutes later, fink will download and install your missing library files and you can run paw++ writing it in your terminal window.
