Cannot open BVE on Mac?

Post by hanhanexpress on Sun Jan 25, 2015 12:51 am

So I've tried executing BVE on Terminal, but this is all it says.


-bash: mono/Users/********/Desktop/Openbve/openbve_stable 2/OpenBve.exe: No such file or directory


Please help!

I'm a PC user, no bitten fruits, but my first guess would be it can't cope with the space in the filepath. In Windows you'd put " around the filepath for it to work, try doing the same here.

A few questions to help you troubleshoot.
 - What is the exact command and output? (Censor the username if you want, but keep the text otherwise intact.) 
 - What directory are you in (check with the pwd command)? 
 - Have you installed all the required libraries? The "no such file or directory" error can result from a missing library.

Hello jsiren. I typed in "mono *drags file into terminal*", which resulted in "no such file or directory", (Actual code:-bash: mono/Users/********/Desktop/Openbve/openbve_stable 2/OpenBve.exe: No such file or director) 


I remember installing everything, but I will try downloading everything again. 


Please help!


Thanks a lot,
hanhan

Hi,

this is a simple problem. You tried to run the command mono/Users/********/Desktop/Openbve/openbve_stable 2/OpenBve.exe, which obviously fails, since you haven't got a directory called mono/Users/[etc.] The reason why this happens is that there's no space between mono and /Users. The shell (bash) doesn't know you want it to run a program called mono with the parameter /Users/***[etc.] (Technically it could guess, but what if it guessed wrong?)

In any case, it's better to do it this way. Open Terminal and enter the two following commands:

cd ~/Desktop/Openbve/openbve_stable\ 2
mono OpenBve.exe

Then see what happens.

Oh, and another thing, since Quork mentioned it: the other space is presumably understood because of the drag-and-drop operation.
