Re: [Gtk-osx-users] newbie begs for assistance

I apologize for frustrating you, I really do appreciate your help.

I've never done anything like this and am finding the wording of the instructions pretty unclear.  To me the "it makes changes" in the instruction here:

 "Download into your home directory. It makes some changes to the defaults from gtk-osx"

would imply an action needing to take place, and not that it would be a resource for the program running, later. but I have changed it back and am currently running the build.

Ok, so I added the directory address, created the alias and ran

now I want to get gnucash up and running, but again, I seem to be

into your home directory. It makes some changes to the defaults

I tried running it with sh in front again, but it gives me an  
unexpected syntax error:

unexpected token `"8."'

any advice?

You know, your inability to follow directions is really frustrating.  
It doesn't say anywhere that you should run .jhbuildrc-custom, just  
download it into your home directory. If it needed to have a .sh on  
the end, it already would.

So change the name back and do the next step in the instructions,  
which is:
$ jhbuild build

It will build. It will take a while (2 hours or so on my Mac Pro).
$ mkdir ~/gtk/inst/tmp
$ ~/gtk/inst/bin/gnucash
