Here is a simple solution to running RIDE in your Mac OS X machines.
If you’re getting the error below, then you’re in the right place:
Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean that RIDE does not work on Mac OS X; it’s just that OS X runs Python on 64-bit mode by default. To solve this, you just have to instruct OS X to use the 32-bit one before running RIDE.
An easy way to get around this is by creating a simple executable (a shell script).
Step 1: Create the Script
- Open TextEdit
- Paste the entire text below:
- Save it as ride.sh
Step 2: Provide executable permission to the script (using chmod)
- Open Terminal
- Navigate to where you saved ride.sh
- Enter this command: chmod +x ride.sh
Step 3. Try your script!
- Enter this command on Terminal ./ride.sh or bash ride.sh
