Pentaho won't launch on MacOS X

Download Pentaho, unpack it.  You double click "Data Integration 64-bit" and nothing happens.

When you try it on the commandline, it gives you:

LSOpenURLsWithRole() failed with error -10810 for the file /Users/trimbo/Downloads/data-integration/Data Integration 64-bit.app.

The solution is to give the JavaApplicationStub file execution permission.

chmod +x ~/Downloads/data-integration/Data Integration 64-bit.app/Contents/MacOS/JavaApplicationStub

Now you can double click the icon and it will launch.

Hopefully this helps someone.
