I have been trying to install QGIS on Mavericks and I have failed. Prior to installing QGIS, I installed GDAL using homebrew. I also installed Numpy, SciPy and pyqt using the detailed instructions provided at: http://www.thisisthegreenroom.com/2011/installing-python-numpy-scipy-matplotlib-and-ipython-on-lion/
I modified my .bash_profile so that when I run
I tried first installing qgis running
brew install qgis --with-grass --with-postgis
and I get the error message
libtool: link: cannot determine absolute directory name of `@@HOMEBREW_CELLAR@@/libpng/1.5.17/lib' make: *** [libcairo.la] Error 1 make: *** [install] Error 2 make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1 make: *** [install] Error 2 READ THIS: https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/wiki/troubleshooting These open issues may also help: https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/issues/3526 https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/pull/23375 https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/issues/20522 https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/pull/23252 https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/issues/16361 https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/pull/18528
Then I also tried downloading the QGIS .dmg file from http://www.kyngchaos.com/software/qgis However, I get an error message each time I try opening Install QGIS.pkg saying that I need matplotlib that I already have!
Is anyone else also having problems installing QGIS on Mavericks? Does anyone know how to solve it?
