I'm helping a friend install on Mac OS X 10.6.6 but I know nothing about the 
Mac. I found this in the archive:

Is that the right approach for her?

Thank you in advance for any Mac tips,


If you simply want to just install and use LP to create musical scores then go 

download and run the latest *.dmg file.

That's it.

There is also a built in editor, see

on how to very easily use and create LP files.

The 2.12.x code had problems as far as I remember with anything MacOS greater 
than 10.3 - I maybe wrong but I never could get it to work in 10.5.x - but the 
latest 2.13.x is fine for 10.5.x upto and including the latest 10.6.7

if you are talking about 'compiling' the source code on a Mac to help with LP 
development then that is a whole other ball game and the general advice is 
don't unless you really know what you are doing (for Mac). But if you really 
want to you should also direct any compiling on a mac to  
address@hidden and make sure you have at least read:

With regard to compiling source code.

However it seems that your friend just wants to use LP to create beautiful 
notation, so no compiling is needed just use the download links above and it 
should be fine.
