Installing Visualization Software on OS XΒΆ

The first thing we need to do is rebuild Python to use OSX’s frameworks, so that it can create graphical windows. To do this first from the terminal do

cd $SAGE_ROOT/local/lib
rm libpng*.dylib

where $SAGE_ROOT is the directory of your Sage install. Next from within Sage,

sage: install_package('python-2.5.1-framework')

Next we will build vtk, this will take a while

sage: install_package('vtk-5.0.3.p1')


sage: install_package('MayaVi-1.5')
sage: install_package('scitools++')
sage: install_package('PyVTK-0.4.74')
