I get "no such file or directory"
Did you do the first "find" command?
I've attached the file in this post, as well as the README.
You'll want to read the README file (just double click it) and it'll tell you where/how to place the control file.
Note you'll want to name the sysctl.conf.txt file to sysctl.conf (i.e. without the .txt extension)
Hope this helps!
The sysctl.conf file is downloaded with the .dmg to install FLDIGI. You then can follow the instructions in the readme.txt file that is in the folder with the app. You have to manually move the sysctl.conf file to the desktop.
The file "/etc/sysctl.conf" may not exist on your Mac. If the file is not there, then create it and add the contents are specified in the README file of WSJT-X. Here are the contents of my "/etc/sysctl.conf" and the file permissions and file ownership. After creating and populating the file, reboot.

I get the same message when following the instructions in the ReadMe file. No Joy so far.
Not to be a jerk about this, but the instructions work, if you follow them exactly.
You say you get this "no such file or directory" message. When do you get it? What command did you issue immediately before that in order to generate that message. There are several opportunities for that message to pop up, so a bit more detail is in order.
Additionally, provide a screen capture after each terminal command so as to identify the step you're missing.
Oh, these h4x0rs Just run two commands in the terminal, without downloading any files :
1) sudo su
2) echo "kern.sysv.shmmax=14680064
" >> /etc/sysctl.conf
P.S. It is absolutely unnecessary to prefix all of your commands with "sudo" on a single-user system when you're intentionally doing system-level work.
I suspect a lack of comfort at the command line, but this works too.
