I am trying to run copyq menu which is opening the menu context. This supposed to worked, but I got copyq command not found and struck at this step. I had tried putting the /Users/myname/.bash_profile but it does not work. I also had tried do shell script "copyq menu" command not found either

The ultimate goal I wants is I am be able to use shortcut to call copyq menu

OSX: 10.13.4 CopyQ Clipboard Manager v3.4.0 ([email protected]) Built with: Qt 5.10.1

How to get copyq menu runs by shortcut?

You need to install CopyQ on your Mac - e.g. through Homebrew:

brew cask install copyq
