Hi Helen,

if this all does not work, you can install the pspp gui version also as a standard bundle
without macports. So that is the usual mac way:

This bundle is for El Capitan, but it might work for other MacOS versions also.

Hi Helen,

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


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

   Hi all,

   I just installed pspp using macports, and i have trouble figuring out how to start pspp. Any helps would be appreciated.
   ps. my knowledge related to computer is really limited, it would be nice if you can explain this in simple words :)


It is a long time since I have used a mac, but if I remember correctly, it worked there
the same way as on any other system.

To start pspp one types "pspp".  Alternatively if psppire is desired (pspp's graphical user interface)
one types "psppire".

Are these words simple enough? :)
