Error: Program "make" not found in PATH

Hi everyone,
While I’ve develop some OF apps in Mac before but this is my first time here in Android section and this question might be extremely noob.
I’ve been searching extensively both in this forum and outside about how to fix this but have yet to find any solution so I’m desperately need help.

I follow the setup instruction to this page ( and get stuck at step L. I can’t figure out the way to compile openFrameworks project. Eclipse keep bugging me with this error.

15:06:14 **** Incremental Build of configuration Android for project openFrameworks ****  
make android -C../openFrameworksCompiled/project/android   
Cannot run program "make": Unknown reason  
Error: Program "make" not found in PATH  
15:06:14 Build Finished (took 4ms)  

I had endlessly checked previous steps on every place where it required me to put any directory path.
And yet didn’t solve this problem.

Any help would be very appreciate, Thanks :wink:

make needs to be on your system so your build system can use it. I think you can get it when you install xcode

bash-3.2$ which make
bash-3.2$ make -v
GNU Make 3.81

Thanks for fast reply michels.

I’ve already had Xcode installed on my system,
yet I look into usr/bin and cannot find make there (i found only makeinfo).
is there another way to get make ?

update: I found one thing that might fix this

I just find out that I haven’t download command line tools in Xcode yet, which can be done by:
open Xcode, go to Xcode->Preferences->Downloads and install component named “Command Line Tools”

I’ll keep posted if this fix it or not.

There it goes compiling!
case closed!

Thanks michels for pointing that out :slight_smile:
