7. Please wait while the installation wizard completes our client installation.



8. Once completed, Lucid will automatically open and you may receive some notifications from macOS about background notifications. On first launch, Lucid will also attempt to load the Kernel Extension that provides lucidfs. If this is the first time installing this version you will be prompted to Allow the "Benjamin Fleischer" Kernel Extension in System Settings > Privacy & Security. You should follow the on-screen prompts to achieve this.

Please refer to the following KB for Installing LucidLink on Apple Silicon for further information on this procedure for newer Apple Mac devices.


9. LucidLink client will be available from Finder within Applications. Please launch the client and connect to your Filespace.
