I am using the Dandelion Eclipse Lisp Plug-in ( on Mac OSX.
I have a windows PC and this plug-in is running ok on it. But when I am using it to evaluate my code on my mac, it prompted me:
"Starting eval server failed
Cannot run program
"/Users/Allan/Downloads/eclipse/plugins/de.defmacro.dandelion.env.clisp.mac.ppc_2.4.9/binary/environment_clisp_2.4.9": error=13, Permission denied"

I tried to run eclipse by using sudo command, but the error was still there. Can anyone please help me with this?

Thank you in advance

Setting execution permission should solve your problem:

chmod +x /Users/Allan/Downloads/eclipse/plugins/de.defmacro.dandelion.env.clisp.mac.ppc_2.4.9/binary/environment_clisp_2.4.9

when doing this should I see some sort of output? I run the chmod+ command with sudo and nothing happens – Michael Miner Oct 28 '15 at 22:40
