Hi Georg,

i just installed pspp-devel @0.9.0_14 on MacOS 10.11.3 and it works.

Are you sure that you have an XServer running? If you install just pspp-devel without
any variant information, then an XServer is expected. An alternative is the quartz variant which
will be based on the gtk3 system without an xserver.

Could you try to run in the terminal: xlogo

You should see a window with an X.

I am no experienced user of terminal commands and so I am quite lost with Macports and the downloaded port PSPP-devel.

I managed to install PSPP on my MacOS 10.10. The last line of the installation reads: --->  No broken files found.    I believe, this is a good sign.

The content is there as well as a Unix executable PSPP. When I run it in the terminal I get the error message: Error: Error for opening the output file `pspp.jnl': Permission denied.  [original line in German: Fehler: Fehler beim Öffnen der Ausgabedatei `pspp.jnl': Permission denied]  

I did have hick-ups with installing the dependency Python because a .list-file already existed. Installation was aborted, but I could manually override this problem. Python got installed. I did not clean the port installation, though, because I forgot that. I am not sure whether that is meaningful information.

I would need help in overcoming this problem of running the program and also I would like to create an icon for my deck - does anybody have experience with that?

Any help from this community is very much appreciated!
