Cannot start splunk - shellscript error in mac OSX


This is for a new install on Mac OSX Mountain Lion for splunk, using the shell script method, I am not able to start splunk and get the following output on the apple script:

error "2013-06-18 12:16:35.823 osascript[17567:707] Error loading /Library/ScriptingAdditions/Adobe Unit Types.osax/Contents/MacOS/Adobe Unit Types: dlopen(/Library/ScriptingAdditions/Adobe Unit Types.osax/Contents/MacOS/Adobe Unit Types, 262): no suitable image found. Did find:
