An error panel immediately pops up: "You can't open the application Sigil.app because it is not supported on this type of Mac".
Also, the app's desktop icon is an S covered by the universal no indicator (circle and slash). So, I believe the error message is coming from the OS, not from sigil itself.
I have had this same thing happen to me with one other app (called Ready), and I found that the app required OpenCL, which my machine is too old to support. So ... does Sigil require OpenCL?
I tried looking through support documents, and this forum, for info about OpenCL but I didn't find any.
Mainly I'm looking for confirmation that sigil won't run on this machine, so that I won't spend more time trying.
Thanks for any help,
This subject has been recently covered.
There is a older MAC
compiled version here
(in Sigil section) at MR (not AT the official download site) that appears to function.
I will leave the work of looking back in the last few months for it, to you. You might spot some othe good stuff while you browse
