[NTG-context] Instalation ConTeXt to MAC - newbie problem

Here is what I do:

Tetrahedron:ConTeXt matthias$ mkdir ~/context
Tetrahedron:ConTeXt matthias$ cd ~/context
Tetrahedron:context matthias$ rsync -ptv rsync://contextgarden.net/minimals/setup/first-setup.sh .
first-setup.sh

sent 38 bytes  received 3636 bytes  1469.60 bytes/sec
total size is 3525  speedup is 0.96


and the files are definitely there. Do you have a space in /context directory? Then you might need apostrophes.

Hello Matthias.
Thank you for the quick response. During installation, no error occurs, even seems that rsync copied without error message first-setup.sh to my %HOME/context directory. When then I look into this directory, then there is no file. Subsequently command sudo sh ./first-setup.sh reports nonexistent file or directory. I tried to install it into your Applications folder too (I have administrative access), but not in this way I have not done.

(As you say: home directory should be safe and path no occure any problematic characters. My home directory is "hajtmar")

Thanx Jaroslav

Hi Jaroslav,

could you explain a bit more what you mean by "the installation will fail”?

What error message do you get at what stage?

You need to make sure that you have write permission to the installation directory; anything inside your home directory should be safe.
Also, as a general precaution, make sure the path to your installation directory doesn’t contain unusual characters.

Hello ConTeXist.
I am trying to install a standalone ConTeXt on MacBook. I am doing everything exactly as instructed on contextgarden.net<http://contextgarden.net>, but the installation will fail. It seems that the problem is with rsync, with copying the installation script first-setup.sh into my Mac. Since I am a longtime Windows user and I'm a newbie on OS X, I'd like to find out what the problem may be. I dont know nothing about OS X, but I suppose that might be a problem with the firewall settings or access rights to the directories which  I use to install ConTeXt etc. Can someone please advise how to perform the installation? There is an option to download the installation package and install ConTeXt differently?
Thanks for replies.

Jaroslav Hajtmar
