    The best way is to follow the instructions given at Mac Ports. However, I can well understand that it is complex and since you're new to the Mac platform, I don't recommend that for you.

    As you know, MyPaint is a Linux program and while it can be ported over to run on a Mac, it may be buggy. What I suggest is finding another program that is similar but Mac native.

    Paintbrush for the Mac is free and very close to Microsoft Paint. Why not give it a try. If you don't like it, just drag it to the trash. Download from here. LINK

    File "/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/scons-2.0.1/SCons/Script/Main.py", line 834, in _main

    contains the SConstruct file used for building V8."

    I hate to keep suggesting that you consider using another program.... but you mentioned that you wanted something like Photoshop or Corel. The Paintbrush program is not suited for that - you're correct. However, GIMP is and you don't have to compile a version for running on your Mac. Here's the LINK. It's free and recommended by many folks. Give it a try.
