  2. Double-click the Applications folder to open it.

DropDMG includes an optional dropdmg command-line tool. It can be installed as follows:

If you downloaded DropDMG direct from C-Command
Go to the Advanced tab of the Preferences window and click the Install “dropdmg” Tool button. DropDMG will ask for an administrator password, as it needs to copy the dropdmg file to the protected /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin folder.
If you purchased DropDMG from Apple’s Mac App Store

Open the Terminal application. To install the command-line tool, enter these commands:

sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/bin/
sudo ln -s "$F/Versions/A/dropdmg" /usr/local/bin/dropdmg

To install the manual, enter these commands:

sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/share/man/man1/
sudo ln -s "$F/Resources/dropdmg.1" /usr/local/share/man/man1/dropdmg.1
