I suggest that you create a folder in your home directory called Mathematica. Then, in the applications folder, ctrl-click the Mathematica icon and select Show Package Contents. You'll see five more folders. Open Configuration, then Kernel, then init.m. Add SetDirectory["Mathematica"]; $Path=Append[$Path,"Mathematica"]; at the bottom of the cell and Save. That's the way I do it. j On 16/4/06 07:29, in article e1so7c$8cq$1 at smc.vnet.net, "AES" <siegman at stanford.edu> wrote: > In Mathematica 5.1 on a single-user Mac iBook running OS 10.3.9, where's > the best place to store my own add-on packages, where they'll still be > find after the next upgrade?
