Hi, I don't quite undestand how to add my own RabbitHole Mac programs
I followed the AmiKitX guide, but I think the path to my Mac program is wrong

For instance I need to add latest Google Chrome Mac browser to RabbitHole, but I can't get it to open in RabbitHole.

Can you help me out

Thanks
Regards

Does the Opera work for you if you follow the instructions in the Quick Guide?

Also make sure your Mac apps are in Applications folder. To double check it launches in Mac, open Terminal and type:

open -a opera

or

open -a chrome

If that works and you set up everything correctly according to Quick Guide, then it should work from AmiKit too.

In Terminal on Mac this works:

open -a "Google Chrome"

for latest Chrome browser

I will try the AmiKit Guide again, with this working path and see if that makes RabbitHole work...

Yes, Opera works, just like the Guide shows

I just cant get latest Chrome to work

Following the Guide and the opera example, I have tried using both :

open -a "Google Chrome"
(Works in Mac Terminal, does not work in RabbitHole)

and

open -a chrome
(Does not work in Mac Terminal, does not work in RabbitHole)

Maybe try open -a ‘google chrome’ with Rabbit Hole? I mean ‘ instead of “

hmm, its strange

open -a ‘google chrome’ does not work either

maybe I need to use the full path to chrome on Mac, like in the example with full path to vlc in the QuickGuide...

Or find an one-word command to launch chrome...
