Issue with installing Daisy Toolchain


I’m just getting started with my Daisy Seed and I want to work it with visual studio code. However I receive this error when installing Daisy Toolchain on macOS:

Error: Failure while executing; cp -pR /private/tmp/d20221205-15114-jdigsl/icu4c/. /usr/local/Cellar/icu4c exited with 1. Here’s the output:
cp: /usr/local/Cellar/icu4c/./71.1: Permission denied
cp: /private/tmp/d20221205-15114-jdigsl/icu4c/./71.1: unable to copy extended attributes to /usr/local/Cellar/icu4c/./71.1: Permission denied
cp: /usr/local/Cellar/icu4c/./71.1/LICENSE: No such file or directory
cp: /usr/local/Cellar/icu4c/./71.1/bin: No such file or directory


I was hoping someone could help share some insight on this. I went to the troubleshooting page on Github and I have all the command lines installed but there isn’t any troubleshooting for this issue.


We have a few GUI installers for the toolchain now.
We’ll be updating the Wiki pages today.

So if you didn’t use the previous install.command or homebrew to install the toolchain (or ran into issues doing so), you can download the package from the links below, and install, and you should be good to go.

That includes everything you should need including arm-none-eabi GCC compiler, and openocd for debugging.

MacOS Intel

Hope that helps!
