I think I am a little step further now. If I try to rattle()  I am asked whether I want to install GTK+ or not. If I do so I get the following:

Checksumming Driver Descriptor Map (DDM : 0)…
     Driver Descriptor Map (DDM : 0): verified   CRC32 $CAB89C05

/dev/disk1s2        	Apple_HFS                      	/Volumes/GTK+2.14

!!!!!!!   The file /Volumes/GTK+ 2.14.3 run-time/gtk2-runtime.pkg does not exist.

hdiutil: detach failed - No such file or directory
Learn more about GTK+ at http://www.gtk.org
If the package still does not load, please ensure that GTK+ is installed and that it is on your PATH environment variable

I guess the marked line is where the problem is. I had issues with pathnames before when interacting with RPostgreSQL, so this could possibly be the case here too. Can I change the pathname somehow ?

Best regards
