Installing gretl

Here's the drill:

  1. Click to download either the latest release or the 'snapshot' (above). Theselected gretl package file should appear in your Downloads after a shortwhile, or it may be opened by the Mac Installer program right away.If the package is not opened automatically, minimize your browser window soyou can see what's happening on your desktop, then double-click on the gretlfile in Downloads to open the installer. Either way, you should then bewalked through the installation process.

  2. Navigate to Applications in the Finder and you should now see a gretlicon there. Double-clicking should start gretl. On its first run gretlmay take a while to start, as it scans the fonts available on yoursystem. Assuming gretl starts OK, you can drag its icon from Applicationsonto the dock to get a quick-launcher.

  3. Clean up: the installer (pkg) file canbe moved to the Trash once installation is completed.


Apple security issues

If you're downloading gretl from this site you can be confident that theinstaller contains no malware. However, Apple's security measures may blockinstalling and/or running gretl. In that case what you have to do depends onwhether you're running macOS 10.15 ('Catalina') or higher, or an earlier version.

  • If your macOS is earlier than Catalina, the discussion (with screenshots)at therampagedevblog should tell you what you need to know.

  • If you're running Catalina or higher, here's a step-by-step HOWTO.

    1. Open System Preferences and navigate to 'Security & privacy'. Select the General tab. We'll come back to this window shortly.

    2. Double-click the gretl .pkg file. You'll get a message 'gretl-quartz.pkg can't be opened because Apple cannot check it ...'. Click OK to close the window.

    3. In the tab mentioned in item 1 you will see a message with a button Open Anyway: click that button.

    4. Double-click the gretl pkg file again. Now you'll get the same window as in item 2, but with two buttons: Open and Cancel. Click Open and gretl will be installed.

  • There's a further security issue with Catalina: after installation of gretl, how do you allow the program to access files on your Desktop and other locations? Again, you do this via the 'Security & privacy' item under System Preferences; see Apple's Catalina guide.
