Hi Paul,

I checked. In my case the Artemis.scpt file looks like this (and 
indeed the strange symbols are present in all the scripts in the 
directory, so maybe it is OK):

I am worried about the red symbols: is the file corrupted? And if so, 
why is it? I just installed the package I downloaded, nothing else.

It does. And if I launch the program in this way, feff6 is invoked 
and runs without the error message, the same way as when I launch 
Artemis with the artemis command from the iTerm window, but 
differently from when I lauch the program double clicking the Artemis 

Not that I am stuck at this poin (I can run my fits using artemis 
launched from the Xwindow) but I wonder whether this little bug can 
be sorted out.
