One thought on “Installing Qcachegrind

  1. I've been trying to install Qcachegrind/Kcachegrind for a few days on El Capitan. When I tried to install graphviz, I got the warning: "graphviz-2.38.0 already installed, it's just not linked", and then when I tried the sudo command above, I get the error: "ln: /usr/bin/dot: Operation not permitted". Any suggestions?
