#17 Install FF on Mountain Lion


Hi, I have been having an extreme amount of difficulty installing Font Forge from source on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. I followed the instructions in the source package ./configure, make, make install but it won't install. I have downloaded Xcode from the app store, and downloaded the additional command line tools and all the documentations etc but still no joy. Would there be anyone out there who could assist a newby to mac on how to get this app to install properly!

P.S. I have also tried the instructions here http://www.makiaea.org/post/15855182870 but they don't work either.

    Ill sit quietly in the corner and wait till someone is able to sucsessfully build Font Forge on OSX.8, as this is what I have now.

    Thank you all.

    You can install FontForge for OS X using MacPorts. After installing MacPorts, type:

    sudo port install fontforge

    If that doesn't work you can report the problem to us at MacPorts and we can try to help.
