Contents


Go to the main Protege 5 installation page

Protege Desktop 5.0 is distributed in the form of a ZIP file from the main Protege website and requires Java 7. Please consult the Oracle Java website for Java download and installation instructions.

Check for Java 7 (optional)

This step is optional. Perform this step if you aren't sure if Java 7 or later is installed on your computer, and used by the Terminal application.

  • Open Finder.
  • Go to Applications -> Utilities.
  • Double-click the Terminal application.
  • At the prompt, type "java -version" to see your Java version number:

Download the ZIP file

  • Go to the Products page on the Protege website.
  • Click the "Download for Mac OSX" button to download the ZIP file to your machine.


Move Protege to Applications

  • Once the download completes, navigate to the folder where the ZIP file was unpacked. On a Mac, this will typically be your "Downloads" folder:

Drag the Protege_5.0_beta folder to the Applications directory.


Launch Protege

To launch Protege Desktop, double-click the run.command file in the root directory of the installation (Applications/Protege_5.0_beta/run.command).


Allow Protege to run

The first time you will try to run the run.command, you will get a warning:

MacOSXWarning.png


To allow Protege to run, go to your System Preferences (in the dock, or in Finder->Applications->System Preferences), and go to the Security & Privacy, and then the General tab. It will look like this:

Click on the button Open anyway and you will get to another dialog, like:

MacOSXWarning2.png


Click on Open and Protege will start.

Alternatively, you may also select for the Allow apps downloaded from: the checkbox: Anywhere in the Security & Privacy preferences panel.


Troubleshooting

Q: When I double-click on the run script, nothing happens, or I see a window that comes up, and goes away!

A: Try running Protege from a console and report any errors displayed in the console window on the Protege User Support mailing list.

  • How to run Protege from the console on OS X:
    • Open Finder
    • Select Applications -> Utilities, then double-click on the Terminal application
    • In the resulting Terminal window, change to the directory where you unzipped Protege (e.g., cd /Applications/Protege_5.0_beta)
    • Type sh run.command

Then report the results back on the protege-user mailing list.


Go to the main Protege 5 installation page
