I just got a new macbook pro and I am reinstalling a lot of libraries and scientific software that I use in my work.

Mac settings

In the Terminal program I like to use the Pro setting and prefer to use the font Menlo, which I find more readable than the default Monaco.


I use Xcode and Qt Creator as programming environments. Qt Creator is part of the Qt SDK and is a very fast editor for C++ code.

I cannot start programming without the boost library and a fresh copy of psi4.

Install Homebrew from the Terminal shell by calling:
bash [if you are using the tcsh shell] ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"

Then, install autoconf
brew install autoconf


Since Mountain Lion does not ship with X11 support I installed XQuartz.

sudo ln -sf /Applications/Utilities/ /Applications/Utilities/

I installed gnuplot using brew

brew install gnuplot


I downloaded boost 1.53

In  boost/config/stdlib/libcpp.hpp
#if _LIBCPP_VERSION < 1002
Then I ran
./ –with-libraries=filesystem,python,regex,serialization,system,thread –with-python=/usr/bin/python –with-toolset=clang
./b2 install toolset=clang cxxflags=”-stdlib=libc++” linkflags=”-stdlib=libc++” –prefix=/Users/francesco/Source/boost_1_53_0-bin-c++11
