Mac: pvplugins path in main properties file is incorrect for development builds

Description (last modified by Owen Arnold) (diff)

Running a build on the Mac produces a properties file containing

pvplugins.directory = ./pvplugins

where the path is supposed to be relative the location of the Mantid.properties file. On the Mac this is not correct as pvplugins ends up in MantidPlot.app/pvplugins

For this to work correctly the first that sets the PV_PLUGINS variable needs to be different on the Mac. I suggest something like if ( APPLE )

set ( PV_PLUGINS "./MantidPlot.app/pvplugins" )


set ( PV_PLUGINS "./pvplugins" )


on line 385 of Kernel/CMakeLists.txt.

Note: Do not touch the other lines related to PV_PLUGINS in the file. They are for the packages and MPI builds.
