This is a guide to running Ardupilot's Mission Planner on Mac without a virutal machine. We'll use Mono instead.
Create the required directories and set the permissions by running the following in a terminal:
sudo mkdir /usr/share/Mission\ Planner sudo chown `whoami` /usr/share/Mission\ Planner
- Unzip the Mission Planner zip file you downloaded and in your terminal
cdinto this directory. For example, I ran:
- Run Mission Planner with this terminal command:
Running this way in Mono works fine for most things, but I couldn't get the setup wizard to work, so be warned, some things may not work quite right on Mac. For these cases, I fallback to the Windows VM.
