Hello Community,

i have some problems running Gretl on Mac OSX Lion. I have Intel i5 Macbook Pro from 2011 and I followed all the steps on 


including the installation of GTK+ Framework and the the steps given in the README.pdf. When i wanted to open Gretl in the normal Applications Folder it gives me the Message:

"You canīt open the Program "Gretl", because it is not supported by your type of Mac"  

(Because Iīm from Germany i had to translate the error message, so it might look slightly different on english)

I definitely downloaded the gretl version for intel macs and the right GTK+ Framework (I did it several times to be sure as it did not work) and as my Os is Lion, X11 was already installed. So i followed the Trouble-Shooting section in the README.pdf an executed Gretl manually via X11 xterm. Then this error-message appears:

dyld: Library not loaded: @executable_path/../lib/libgmp.3.dylib
  Referenced from: /Applications/Gretl.app/Contents/Resources/bin/gretl_x11
  Reason: no suitable image found.  Did find:
        /Applications/Gretl.app/Contents/Resources/bin/../lib/libgmp.3.dylib: file too short
        /Applications/Gretl.app/Contents/Resources/bin/../lib/libgmp.3.dylib: file too short
Trace/BPT trap: 5

I tried to find answers in the previously discussed problems on running Gretl on mac, but i didīt find anything that worked for me!

Thanks for your answers and greetings
