Kindlegen "does not appear to be a command line tool"

Recommended Posts

I recently installed kindlegen (Mac OS) v. 2.9 on my Mac (10.11.3). When I try to export my document into mobi format I get this error. Anyone know what's wrong?

 

This is the first time I've tried to do this in Storyist (ePubs work fine). I was able to go to the directory where I unzipped kindlegen and run the command from Terminal successfully. So what is Storyist's problem? The kindlegen file is clearly a valid executable.

 

Thank you!

Hi jlee,

 

You'd get that message if OS X reports a content type other than "public.unix-executable" at runtime.

 

What do you get when you run "mdls kindlegen" in a terminal window? If it's not public.unix-executable, please post the value. It may be that the tool is still in "quarantine" after the download. If so, double-clicking on the tool to run it once should remove the quarantine.
