PDI under Mountain Lion (Weird Error 13)

If you are getting this weird error when starting Kettle under Mountain Lion:

17/12/12 11:39:39.201 AM com.apple.launchd.peruser.501[1827]: ([0x0-0x71b71b].Data Integration 64-bit[11211]) Job failed to exec(3) for weird reason: 13

This is how you fix it:

  1. Go to the directory you unzipped PDI in using terminal
  2. Go into the “Data Integration 64-bit.app/Contents/MacOS” directory
  3. chmod +x JavaApplicationStub
  4. All Done!!

Also make sure your security settings under preferences allows untrusted applications
