Installing chromedriver to run with selenium webdriver on mac

Struggled a bit to have this up and running, so here are some notes!

1. Download chromedriver from here

2 Unzip it

3. Drag it to /usr/bin ( to locate /usr/bin : go to finder, from the go menu go to folder )

You may need to right click on the chrome driver and open it, this is because sometimes on Mavericks if the app is unsigned it doesn’t execute, so you will have to specifically run it.  *


4. Restart your system (don’t ask me why 🙂 )

5. Update your properties file to request your webdriver to chrome

*Running an unassigned app on mac

  • To override your security settings and open the app anyway:

    1. In the Finder, locate the app you want to open.

      Don’t use Launchpad to do this. Launchpad doesn’t allow you to access the shortcut menu.

    2. Press the Control key, then click the app icon, then choose Open from the shortcut menu.

    3. Click Open.
