Hi Helen,

on macports the gui version „psppire“ can be started from the user applications 


As an alternative, you can start it from the terminal as John indicated. But for
the gui version you need an additional XServer. Plus the Xserver has to start
when you launch the gui version „psppire“.

Please make sure that you have installed an Xserver. You can take one
from macports „xorg-server“ or the XQuartz server (See:

Check here also:

if the XServer does not start automagically.

So type the following in the terminal, assuming that you have not installed the 
XQuartz Server.

sudo port install xorg-server
launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.macports.startx.plist

Then logout and login again

Then type in the terminal
