Where is my GAUSS home directory on Mac?

1 Answer

Location of the GAUSS home directory:
On the Mac, your GAUSS home directory will be in: /Users//gauss. The information inside of angle brackets will change based upon your specific situation. For example if your user name is Tom and you are using GAUSS 14, then your GAUSS home directory on Mac would be:
Users new to Mac should note that the Mac uses forward slashes '/' instead of backwards slashes '\' for path separators.
Locating the GAUSS home directory in the Mac Finder:
To locate your GAUSS home directory in the Mac Finder, you will first need to locate your home directory. Versions of Mac OS after 'Lion' have taken the Mac Home directory away from the main 'Finder' window. To navigate to your home directory in these later versions of Mac OS, from the 'Finder' main application menu (which will be at the top of the screen, not attached directly to the finder), you can select Go->Home to bring up your Mac home directory. Once in your Mac home directory, you should see a folder called 'gauss14' or (the last two digits will match your GAUSS version number). Double-click on the 'gauss14' folder to open your GAUSS home folder.
