I has an earlier post on sendpraat and praat with Elan. Here’s an update from Han Sloetjes (via Ruth Singer).
It’s possible that there’s an issue with the file permissions, and this needs to be fixed in the terminal window:
- open a Terminal window (Applications/Utilities/Terminal)
- type “cd ” (without the quotes) and drag the folder where sendpraat is into the Terminal window. This copies the path to the folder. With the Terminal window active, press enter.
- You should now be “in” the right folder and you can type “ls -al” followed by enter.
- The output should be something like this:
dhcp68:sendpraat han$ ls -al
-r-xr-xr-x@ 1 han admin 17400 27 mrt 2008 sendpraat
-r-xr-xrwx@ 1 han staff 17400 11 mrt 2008 sendpraat_intel
-rw-r–r–@ 1 han staff 21900 13 jan 2006 sendpraat_ppc
- If there are no “x” (executable) characters in the first part of the sendpraat line, you can do the following command
chmod 557 sendpraat
- followed by enter, then try ls -al again to see the changes. If there is an “x” try again from within ELAN.
