Installing the modeler in a Mac

I’m pretty new to this nice world,
following the instructions to install-use the modeler in a mac.

  • I downloaded the modeler for Mac (zip, last version)
  • I extracted it in the application folder
  • double click on camunda-modeler-4/Contents/MacOS/Camunda Modeler

The terminal opens and the lines hereafter follow, but the modeler application doesn’t popup.

  1. Am I following the good process?
  2. Any clue?

What if you try this link

thanks @Alex_Voloshyn.
I start the application but nothing happens. The icon shows on the launchbar for 1 second and then it disapeears.
I check the logs here: /Library/logs
but they are empty

Did you try to unzip it and from another folder different from /Applications?

Unzipping in a different location brings the same issue.

I found some logs that are triggered when I start the application installed through the dmg file:
getattrlist failed for /Library/GPUBundles/AMDRadeonX6000GLDriver.bundle/Contents/MacOS/ATIRadeonX6000SCLib.dylib: #2: No such file or directory
MyComputerName-Google Chrome Helper[581]: Libnotify: notify_register_coalesced_registration failed with code 9 on line 2835

Silly suggestion. What if you try to reboot Mac? It magically helps sometimes.

It worked! Thanks a lot!

@Anna_Setiva please mark that answer as the solution so we see what was it.
