In order to get okular working, I’m following the instructions in https://trac.macports.org/ticket/60059#comment:8 <https://trac.macports.org/ticket/60059#comment:8>.
This involves, among other things, creating a local port (okular2) in a folder under my own account, namely:
containing subdirectory files and Portfile, copied from the macports sources, but with Portfile edited per those instructions.
When I finally execute…
sudo port install okular2
.. I get error message:
Unable to execute port: Could not open file: /Users/murray/macports/myports/kde/okular2/Portfile
The permissions seem to be the same on my modified Portfile in as for the distributed Portfile in /opt/local/var/macports/sources/rsync.macports.org/release/tarballs/ports/kde/okular, except that I am the owner, in group staff, of the former, whereas messagebus, with group ldap, is the owner of the latter. The permissions on my modified file are:
What could be wrong?
Note that before attempting the install, I _did_ execute:
which did create file ~/macports/myports/kde/Portindex.
