How do I actually use the script???
Exactly why you're getting the error message depends on the exact command, and what permissions you have for the locations you specify.
I'd suggest forgetting the terminal, and use the Applescript application I've just uploaded here: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...836#post774836
Just drag&drop the mobipocket file onto the script, and it'll decode into a folder in the same location as the file. The first time you run it it will ask you to find the copy of the MobiUnpack.py script you have on your hard disk.
If you have any further problems, just ask.
