Running Tortoise 3.1.2 under recent MacOS versions (High Sierra, Mojave)?

Submitted by timschaefer on Fri, 03/01/2019 - 08:31

We installed Tortoise 3.1.2 from here under MacOS (we tried both High Sierra and Majave, the latest 2 versions) and followed the manual to process our data. But at the first step (data import), the ComputeGlyphMaps command fails:

When running ComputeGlyphMaps, I get the following error (even when running witout any command line arguments):

$ ComputeGlyphMaps
dyld: Library not loaded: /Users/irfanogo_local/Desktop/UK_trip_data_software_code/code/libraries/VTK801_build/lib/libvtkDomainsChemistryOpenGL2-8.0.1.dylib
  Referenced from: /Users/ts/software/TORTOISE_V3.1.2/DIFFCALC/DIFFCALCV312/ComputeGlyphMaps
  Reason: image not found
Abort trap: 6

Note the path from which it tries to load that library (it seems to be hardcoded?!) The libary is also nowhere to be found in the Tortoise dir.

Of course I could try to download and compile VTK, create that path (or use otool) and put it there, but I feel I should not need to do this.


Is there anything I'm doing wrong? Has somebody tried to run this under MacOS?
