Heard OS X is more like Linux ? But you might wonder that apt-get does not work by default in MAC OS X. Some folks are in love with apt-get and find it easier to install new applications using apt-get.
So in this post I am going to show you how you can make apt-get to work in MAC OS X.
To make apt-get work, you have to install FINK
- Download the FINK project from this Download Page
- Run the installer, if you have OS X version 10.5 or lesser. But if you have 10.6 or higher then you have to source compile and install. Follow the instructions here
That’s it ! Now you will able to use apt-get just like you can do in Linux. As simple as the following –
sudo apt-get install gimp
Hope that helps.
