Macos – /usr/local/lib on macos


Libgtksourceview-2.0.0.dylib requires version 6001.0.0 or later, but libgio-2.0.0.dylib provides version 5503.0.0

However, I do not know how to raise the libgio-2.0.0.dylib version.
What kind of directory is /usr/local/lib in the first place?
please tell me.

Best Answer

All of /usr/local is for stuff you (or your system administrator) installed, that did not come with the OS from Apple. /usr/local/lib is for libraries: packages of precompiled code implementing various useful functions, that can be loaded and used by apps, but are not themselves apps.

If you don't recall installing these libraries, they were probably installed by an open source software package management system such as Homebrew. Look into using brew to upgrade them.
