Application Permission Problem

Postby Mark M. » Sun, 12 Sep 2004 09:20:06 GMT

I have installed an application with the administrator account for everyone
to use.  I tested the application with my personal account and get an error
ou do not have permission to open the application. Before trying the
application I went into system preference -> account and gave my user
permission and I noticed that these permission would not stay set.

I gave up on the above approach and deleted all files.  Then I just
installed the application under my account.  When I run the application I
still get the permission error.   What am I doing wrong?

Run Disk Utility. Select the hard drive. Click 'Repair Permissions.'
Then wait. :-)

Then try running the app.

The installer for that application might be faulty or you might not be 
following the install procedure property. No one reads minds so without 
knowing which of the tens of thousands of applications that are 
available for Mac OS X, which version of Mac OS X you're using, and 
exactly how you did the installation, its hard to provide a detailed 
response.

System: G5, OSX 10.5.3 with 1G of memory

 
The application is a game called WingNuts.  I have tried to set this game up
for all users on the machine, however I get an error of o permission to
open the applicationeven when the application is in my personal account.
With more research on the permission, I have turned on select permission and
checked to it he game would run.  Nothing would work until the main switch
(No limit on applications) was check then WingNuts finally ran.   What extra
permissions are controlled by the master switch versus each individual
switch?

2.Automatic Update application ignores permissions

I have a managed account on my computer - I've allowed the user to
launch all Office applications except the Updater, Remove Office, and
the Handheld Sync Installer.  However, if the user clicks "Check for
updates" in the Help menu in Word, the Updater application launches,
and the AU daemon is put in the list of applications to startup on
login.  I guess this is the place to report such a bug - does anyone
know how to prevent the user from launching the Updater application in
this way?

3.Permission Email Receiving Application??

I saw an interesting PC product called ChoiceMail for email screening. 
It's sorta like caller ID for email.  With this application people can't 
send you email unless their email address is know to your ChoiceMail 
enhanced email client. If they are not known they get a auto-response 
requesting that they identify themselves and explain a brief reason for 
contacting you, which involves filling out a form and copying a number 
that they see on the form.  Anybody know of anything like this for Mac?

5.Applications directory permissions

Can someone do 

ls -alh / | grep App

and post the results?

My Applications directory is suddenly demanding authentication every 
time I want to move something there; this screws up automatic updates 
(Azureus even told me so).

Mine looks like this:

drwxr-xr-x+ 131 root  wheel   4.3K Dec  2 16:34 Applications/

which means it's only writable by root. I'm running as an admin, but I'm 
not sure if admins are in wheel or not. I'm guessing I installed 
something that changed the permissions. I did the "repair permissions" 
thing, which didn't change anything.

Thanks.
