I'm trying to install Molden in a MACOS Bigsurf.

The steps that I followed:

  1. Install the compilers, gfortran,libraries, etc.
  2. extract the source from molden page.
  3. open the molden5.8 directory and from terminal run "make all".

But, in step 2 I get the following message:

Error: Type mismatch between actual argument at (1) and actual argument at (2) (REAL(8)/REAL(4)). molden.f:6495:28:

6495 | call parptr(16,fdum,fdum,idum) | 1 ...... 8594 | call parptr(1,freq,fdum,idum) | 2
Error: Type mismatch between actual argument at (1) and actual argument at (2) (REAL(8)/REAL(4)). make: *** [molden.o] Error 1

what is wrong? what can I do?

There are Molden precompiled binaries for OS X. Here is a page that shows you how to acquire molden binaries. https://www.macinchem.org/blog/files/7a5f03265cc78741fb3cc2a86c54f41e-377.php
You ftp the server as a guest and download the most recent binary. After you ftp in, it will open a virtual drive and you can copy it right to your Desktop. I just tried it on Catalina and it worked right out of the box.
