    1717 * Drag the gsas folder to where you want it on your computer. I recommend you place this in an area where you have write access without running as admin (you don't login as an admin, routinely -- right?!). If you place this folder in /Applications or any other central location, use an admin account for the next step, as well as to run EXPGUI to perform upgrades.
    1818
    19  * Click on the gsas folder in the location where you have copied it. You should see three files: bootstrap.py (the installation script); expgui (an !AppleScript for running EXPGUI, OS X 10.5 & 10.6); expgui10.4 (an applescript for running EXPGUI, OS X 10.4)

    2121 * click on bootstrap.py. This should launch python, which will open a terminal window and will start downloading the files needed by GSAS & EXPGUI from the network. If python is installed, but is not connected to the .py extension, it is possible to open a terminal window, use 'cd' to change to the appropriate directory and then type {{{python bootstrap.py}}} Note that this script can safely be rerun if a problem occurs in the download. In fact, whenever it is run, it will check the files on your computer against those on the repository and will download any updates.

    23 
    24  * recommended: drag the expgui (expgui.app) !AppleScript to the dock. If using 10.4 on a Intel machine, you will likely have better luck with the expgui10.4 script -- this is the default on the PPC dist. Rename this to expgui. On the PPC distribution, this is the default version. These scripts were updated on April 15, 2010. If you have older versions, you are recommended to replace them with versions from the above file.
    25 
    26 EXPGUI is started by clicking on the expgui icon, or by dragging .EXP files or directories onto the expgui icon. On occasion, nothing happens when I click on the icon. Closing or restarting X11 seems to fix this problem.
     23 * recommended: drag the expgui (expgui.app) AppleScript to the dock. (If using 10.4 on a Intel machine, you will likely have better luck with the expgui10.4 script. Rename this to expgui. On the PPC distribution, the 10.4 version is already the default version.) These scripts were updated on April 15, 2010. If you have older versions, you are recommended to replace them with versions from the above file. EXPGUI is started by clicking on the this expgui app, or by dragging .EXP files or directories onto the expgui app. On occasion, nothing happens when I click on the icon. Closing or restarting X11 seems to fix this problem.

    5249 * Drag the gsas folder to where you want it on your computer. I recommend you place this in an area where you have write access without running as admin (you don't login as an admin, routinely -- right?!). If you place this folder in /Applications or any other central location, you will need to use an admin account for the next step, as well as later to perform upgrades.

     53=== EXPGUI AppleScript ===
     54
     55The AppleScript to start EXPGUI must be located in the main directory where GSAS is installed. You can drag it to the dock from there, '''but do not move the file''', since the script locates the files it needs to run relative to its location. EXPGUI is started by clicking on the expgui icon, or by dragging .EXP files or directories onto the expgui icon. On occasion, nothing happens when I click on the icon. Closing or restarting X11 seems to fix this problem. If you have problems with this, please see the page on [AppleScript EXPGUI AppleScripts].
