latest build for OSX does not recognize Kindle

Running Calibre on both Windows and OSX. On my mac the kindle is never recognized as a device with calibre. It works perfectly on the pc.

Any ideas?

can you put up a print screen of your terminal so we can see what you are doing?

Also, have you run the application and put in your password when it prompted for it the first time your ran calibre?

If you are in the folder where it exists and that folder is not in the path you have to run it like:

./calibre-debug

But, the folder that link is in should be in your path. Perhaps it is not for some reason.
