I ran the installer BRL-CAD 7.12.2.pkg on Mac using OS 10.6.8 The installation was apparently successful, but now I am unable to locate the program. I cannot find it under any name, anywhere, and I have no idea what it means to:
Remember to add /usr/brlcad/bin to your path.
For Bourne-shell-based shells (sh, bash, ash, zsh) add the following to your~/.profile
PATH=/usr/brlcad/bin:$PATH ; export PATH
Is there some way I can learn to utilize this program without first understanding the how to use Unix commands in the terminal. Pretty discouraging, that a Mac program could be so un user friendly. I am assuming that outside of simple commercial programs, the rest of us non tech savvy people are likely to be able to use these programs. and if that is the case, please tell me how to remove this program from my hard drive. I cannot find it, I cannot remove it. And apparently I cannot use it. Also please note I believe someone tried to ask this question a year ago and I may be wrong but when I looked on the support page where they generated the ? they never apparently got an answer.
